Alexander Gavrylyuk in Recital



Following his huge success in Melbourne Recital Centre’s Great Performers series in 2016, dazzling piano virtuoso Alexander Gavrylyuk returns in November for one performance only.

Alexander Gavrylyuk is a virtuoso in the grand manner of a Horowitz, Richter or Rubinstein – a barnstorming, red-blooded Romantic. He started learning piano at seven, moved from the Ukraine to Sydney aged 13, and commenced his prize-winning career aged 15.

The young master has effortlessly transitioned from prodigy to busy international soloist while still in his early 30s: highlights of Gavrylyuk’s extraordinary career have included concertos with the Concertgebouw, the New York, Israel, and Moscow Philharmonic and Cincinnati Symphony orchestras, headlining at the Hollywood Bowl, and recitals in Budapest, London, Vienna, Moscow and Tokyo.

‘Alexander Gavrylyuk is one of the greatest discoveries of the past decade, every time he enchants the public with his incredible virtuosity and thought-provoking playing.’ De Telegraaf
