Fueled by her victories on the grueling international competition circuit, Tatiana Tessman's reputation as an outstanding pianist of exceptional value expanded rapidly, leading to engagements throughout Russia, Europe, Latin America, Asia and the United States. Her artistry has taken her to many of the world's leading venues including The Big Hall of Moscow Conservatory, The Seoul Arts Center in Korea, Italy's La Scala and Carnegie's Weill Hall, where her performance was recorded and broadcast by New York's WQXR Classical Music Station.

In 2003, Ms. Tessman's career marked a milestone when the Russian pianist was invited by Mstislav Rostropovich to perform under the maestro's baton with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra at the "Klassik am Odeons platz" in Munich. The concert took place at the central square in front of an astonishing 7000 people. Ms. Tessman's debut with Maestro Rostropovich was followed by an appearance at the "Summer Concerts" Festival in Ingolstadt. It was at these concerts where Tatiana Tessman's much-acclaimed performance of Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto led to other concerts at the series "La Scala presents."

Ms. Tessman's public concert career began at the age of four in Omsk, Russia.
