Matinee Musicale: Alexandre Kantorow – Cincinnati Debut Young Tsar of the Piano

2019 Tchaikovsky Competition Gold Medal and Grand Prix Winner

“He is the real deal, a fire-breathing virtuoso with a poetic charm and innate stylistic mastery.”

     Gramophone

  “If his sheer virtuosity is impressive, it is his ear for poetry that makes him a true artist.”

     The Times, 5+

 “Alexandre is Liszt reincarnated.  I’ve never heard anyone play the piano as he does.”

     Jerry Dubins, Fanfare Magazine

 “Alexandre is already amongst the stars.”

     “Olivier Bellamy, Huffington Post

 

In 2019, aged 22, Alexandre Kantorow became the first French pianist to win the Gold Medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition, where he also won the Grand Prix, only awarded three times before in the competition’s history.  The ‘young tsar of the piano’ (Classica), has received numerous other awards and has performed worldwide at the highest level.

He began his professional career at age 16 and has since played with many of the world’s major orchestras. He has performed solo recitals at major concert halls across Europe and appeared at some of the most prestigious festivals.  His most recent recording (solo works by Brahms) received the 2022 Diapason d’Or. His two previous recordings (Saint-Saëns Concerti #3-5 and solo works by Brahms, Bartok and Liszt) each received both the Diapason d’Or and Choc Classica of the Year in 2019 and 2020 respectively. The solo disc was Gramophone magazine’s Editor’s Choice.

Kantorow is a laureate of the Safran Foundation and Banque Populaire, and in 2019 he was named ‘Musical Revelation of the Year’ by the Professional Critics Association. In 2020 he won the Victoires de la Musique Classique in two categories: Recording of the Year and Instrumental Soloist of the Year.

Born in France of Franco-British heritage, he has studied with Pierre-Alain Volondat, Igor Lazko, Frank Braley and Rena Shereshevskaya.
