‘If this giant visits your city, drop everything you are doing and go and hear him. His towering spirit carries the future of Music as few are destined in any century.’ Roger Woodward, Limelight 2017

Following his thrilling triumph at this year’s BBC Proms, which was awarded a 5 star review in The Times, Alexander Gavrylyuk returns in November for one unforgettable recital.

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.
