This exciting young Russian pianist gained international recognition through his outstanding appearance at the 8th International Tchaikovsky Competition for young musicians, where he won First Prize at the tender age of 13. Alexander was scheduled to perform on our series earlier this year; we are delighted that we were able to find a new date for his much-anticipated Canadian debut!
