Ali Mammadoff’s has been captivating audiences around the globe with his virtuosity, depth, sensitivity and individuality. His exceptional pianistic abilities have taken him all over the world from Europe to the United States.
He appeared numerous times both as a soloist and with the orchestra in the United States, England, Germany,  France, Italy, Turkey, Ukraine and Azerbaijan. His most recent highlights include the performance of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto in D minor at 13th Qabala International Music Festival with maestro Fuad Ibrahimov, which was a spectacular success. His breathtaking performances have won him prizes at international competitions both as a pianist and a composer.

Born in Baku, Azerbaijan the future musician began to show curiosity in piano at the age of five. Noticing his passion, his mother took him to the Special Music School named after Bulbul in Baku, where he studied music fundamentals with Adelya Rahimova and composition with Pike Akhundova. However, Mr. Mammadoff decided to make a life-long professional commitment to music from the age of 16. His exceptional talent and passion for music brought him to Manhattan School of Music, where he studied under Phillip Kawin and was awarded the Harold and Helene Schoenberg scholarship. In December 2022, as a part of the “New Names” project, Mammadoff closed the season with a sensational performance of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto after which he was immediately invited to perform this concerto at 13th Gabala International Music Festival with maestro Fuad Ibrahimov in the open air concert. In October 2023, artistic director of “World Concerto Tour” project Stanislav Ioudenitch celebrating Sergei Rachmaninoff’s 150th anniversary featuring composer’s complete piano concerti invited Mr. Mammadoff to perform Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto as a part of the project, which was received with a breathtaking ovation.

Currently Mr. Mammadoff is being mentored by 2001 Van Cliburn Gold medalist Stanislav Ioudenitch. He also received lessons from 1968 Vianna da Motta Gold Medalist Farhad Badalbeyli, celebrated piano teacher Rena Shereshevskaya, israeli pianist Alon Goldstein and lithuanian pianist Muza Rybackyte.
