Alexander Gadjiev at Steinway Hall for the Keyboard Charitable Trust
Winner of the Hamamatsu Competition in 2015 he gave an impassioned account of Schumann Kreisleriana which is on his new CD “Literary Fantasies” due for release later this month on Acousence Records.
A crystalline account of the Bach French Suite n.3 in B minor BWV 814 was followed by the first of Prokofievs 3 “War Sonatas” n.6 op 82,
And war it was with a massive onslaught into the savage world that Prokofiev so vividly portrays.
After such a physically exciting performance it was no wonder he did not quite find the calm for the love that dear Isolde exclaims in Liszt’s famous transcription .
Still only 22 here is indeed a talent to be reckoned with and Hats off to the Keyboard Trust for inviting him to play in London for the first time to a such discerning public that included Noretta Conci-Leech and her husband John founders of the Trust,
Leslie Howard,Vitaly Pisarenko Sasha Grynuk Iya I. Sughayer ,Sulamita Aranowska were just a few of the distinguished pianists that came to welcome this delightful young man to London.
