Jaques Samuel Prize Winner’s Wigmore Hall recital.
An extraordinary debut recital by this 21 year old winner of the Jaques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition .
I was at the final of the competition last November when this young man amongst some very fine contestants took us all by storm with a sensational account of Rachmaninov’s Sonata in B flat minor.
We saw each other again when he was in the audience for the extraordinary recital at the Chopin Society of his present teacher Dmitri Alexeev at the RCM in London.
I remember Craig Sheppard
telling me about this remarkable young man when still in his teens he won the International Piano Competition in Seattle.
He has much in common with his mentor with his total involvement when he is seated at the piano and great sense of balance and colour.
A technique that like Alexeev knows no boundaries and is at the service of their search for the true musical meaning of the works that they transmit so fervently to us.
