Askonas Holt is proud to announce that the exciting young pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk has joined our roster for general management
Alexander Gavrylyuk began his piano studies at the age of seven and gave his first concerto performance when he was nine years old. He went on to win First Prize and Gold Medal at the 1999 Horowitz International Piano Competition, First Prize at the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in Japan in 2000 where the Japanese press lauded him as the “most talented 16-year old” and, in 2005, he took both the coveted Gold Medal as well as the award for Best Performance of a Classical Concerto at the internationally renowned Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Masters Competition.
Still only 28 years old, he now performs with an impressive array of the world’s top orchestras and conductors including the Philharmonic Orchestras of New York, Los Angeles, Warsaw, Moscow, Israel and Rotterdam as well as the Royal Scottish National, Bournemouth Symphony, Stuttgarter Philharmoniker, Netherlands Philharmonic and Brussels Philharmonic.
In May 2013 he will make his debut with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande on a concert tour with the complete Rachmaninov concerti and the Rhapsody, conducted by Neeme Järvi.
His recordings include an acclaimed recording of the complete Prokofiev Concerti with Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Sydney Symphony (recorded live at the Sydney Opera House), as well as a recital disc of works by Rachmaninov, Scriabin and Prokofiev for Piano Classics.
Alexander Gavrylyuk will perform at the Wigmore Hall next Monday (29th April) as part of the BBC Radio 3 lunchtime concert series. The recital will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
