Nathalia Milstein is passionate about chamber music and performs with renowned musicians and  the duo she formed a few years ago with her violinist sister, Maria Milstein.

Nathalia Milstein was born in 1995 in Lyon into a family of Russian musicians. She began playing the piano at four with her father, Serguei Milstein. In 2013, Nathalia entered the Haute école de musique de Genève in the class of Nelson Goerner. After obtaining the Bachelor and Master of Soloist with distinction, she continued her studies with Nelson Goerner at the Barenboim-Said Akademie in Berlin.

After winning the 1st Prize at the 10th International Piano Competition in Dublin in May 2015, Nathalia Milstein’s international success commenced. She has since performed recitals at Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall) in New York, the National Concert Hall in Dublin, the Wigmore Hall in London, and the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. She has also performed at many festivals, such as the Festival International de la Roque d'Anthéron, Festival Radio France Occitanie, the New Ross Piano Festival and the Lille Piano Festival.

Recently, Nathalia Milstein had the opportunity to return to the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra) - with whom she made her debut in 2016 - under the direction of Mikko Franck and collaborated with the Orchestre de Chambre de Genève (the Geneva Chamber Orchestra) and Arie van Beek. The pianist also travelled around Europe as part of the "Building Bridges" concert series organised under the auspices of András Schiff. In 2023, she will perform with the orchestra at the Philharmonie de Paris and the Auditorium de Radio France (the Radio France Auditorium).

Supported by the Fondation Safran and the Fondation Tempo, Nathalia Milstein recorded her first disc combining Prokofiev and Ravel, released in 2018 by Mirare and was awarded a Choc Classica. A second disc, "Visions fugitives", was released in September 2021 and was also awarded a Choc Classica in 2021.
