Elena Fischer-Dieskau started playing the piano when she was six years old. She studied in the class of Vladimir Krainev at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media, as well as at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore with legendary pianist and teacher Leon Fleisher, under whose supervision she obtained her Graduate Performance Diploma.
With a French mother, Elena partly grew up in France, where she attended the Paris Conservatoire as a child. There she met Russian pianist Rena Shereshevskaya, who became her mentor. During her studies she was supported by the German Foundation “PE Forderungen”, as well as by the Leon Fleisher Fund in Baltimore. During her undergraduate studies, Elena Fischer-Dieskau was chosen to play the role of a pianist on the big screen in the French drama film Tout est pardonné (“All is Forgiven”) by Mia Hansen Løve, performing music by Schumann and Beethoven on screen.
Elena Fischer-Dieskau appears worldwide in major classical music venues and festivals. Thus, she has already been invited to perform at Edinburgh Festival and at the Festival International de Colmar (France), at Perth Concert Hall, at the Cidade das Artes as well as the Theatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro, for the Schleswig-Holstein Brahms Society, at the Lisztomanias Festival in Chateauroux, and at the Louvre Auditorium in Paris. 2022 marked her début appearance at the Ruhr Piano Festival.
