Ukrainian born pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk will play in Waikanae on Sunday 2 March. Winner of three top international piano competitions before the age of 20, including the prestigious Arthur Rubinstein competition, Gavrylyuk has the world's critics searching for superlatives to describe his performances. Hailed by audiences from the Kremlin to Amsterdam's Concertgebou, from Wigmore Hall to the Sydney Opera House, this young pianist, still not quite 30, has been described by one critic as "absolutely phenomenal, with blinding virtuosity, deep musicality, musical intuition, intelligence and aristocratism".

Gavrylyuk works regularly with many of the world's major orchestras under eminent conductors such as Segerstam, Lazarev, and Jarvi and has recorded Prokofiev's complete piano concertos under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy who described him as "an extraordinary talent".

Waikanae Music Society's organisers are obviously thrilled to open their season with such an illustrious performer. He will play music by Schumann, Mozart, Liszt and Prokofiev.

Programme:
Schumann: Kinderszenen (Opus 15)
Mozart: Sonata in C Major (K 330)
Mozart/Liszt: Lacrymosa from Requiem
Liszt: Tarantella from Venezia e Napoli
Prokofiev: Sonata No 6 (Opus 82)

Door sales will be available on the day or tickets can be purchased at Waikanae New World, Moby Dickens Books in Paraparaumu Beach or at Lush Design Gallery in Raumati. For ticket enquiries phone 04 905 5078 or visit our website.

Alexander Gavrylyuk's Waikanae visit is supported by the generous sponsorship of the Deane Endowment Trust and the helpful cooperation of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
