Morgans International Piano Series 2017
Presented by International Piano Series and Adelaide Festival Centre
A dark, intense, and ferociously concentrated performance.
Alexander Gavrylyuk is a prodigiously gifted young pianist who delivers a big scale recital with works by Schubert, Chopin, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Balakirev.
A staggering technical show of mastery, Gavrylyuk is a tour-de-force performer. With equal skill in machine-gun speed and a delicate touch on the lingering respite passages, Gavrylyuk is a pianist on the global rise.
