Aleksei Dmitrievitch Maslennikov Масленников Алексей (Альберт) Дмитриевич (born September 9, 1929), is a Russian tenor.

Maslennikov was born in Novocherkassk, Russia. In 1953 he studied at the Moscow Conservatory and in 1955 became a member of the Bolshoi Theatre where he remained into the late 1990s. His vocal style is often compared to that of German tenor Gerhard Stolze as both men shared a likeness in singing Sprechgesang.[citation needed]
