Cancelled: Alexandre Kantorow, Piano
Feel the excitement of pianist Alexandre Kantorow—“a fire-breathing virtuoso with a poetic charm and innate stylistic mastery” (Gramophone)—performing a bravura recital. Winner of the 2019 International Tchaikovsky Competition gold medal and Grand Prix, all facets of his mastery are displayed in showpieces of Liszt and Stravinsky, a rhapsodic Fauré work, and the majestic five-movement sonata by Brahms. Daniil Trifonov is the only other pianist who has won the Grand Prix—come see Kantorow write the next chapter in Carnegie Hall’s great keyboard legacy.
