Winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2019 in a piano recital.
In 2019, at the age of 22, Alexandre Kantorow became the first French pianist ever to win the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Since then, he has toured with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra, and given recitals at Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall in New York, and much more. He is acclaimed for his glowing, intense and poetic depth of performance and now he will debut at Konserthuset Stockholm with his own recital.
It brings a unique dimension to the listening experience to hear an entire concert of music by just one composer. Together with Kantorow, we will take a deep dive into Brahms’ captivating piano music. The poetically narrative ballads, the voluminous and romantically passionate Third Sonata and the elegant tribute to Schumann, all works from youth, are reflected in the adult Brahms’ arrangement for left hand of Bach’s severe Chaconne for solo violin.
