Farley Music Festival : Piano Recital by Alexei Grynyuk

Wednesday 11 June 2014 at 19:00

Alexei GrynyukKiev born pianist Alexei Grynyuk displayed tremendous interest in music from an early childhood and started giving his first public concerts at the age of six. At thirteen he attracted wide attention by winning the first prize at the Sergei Diaghilev All-Soviet-Union piano competition in Moscow. By then he had already been touring Eastern European countries as a soloist as well as performing Mozart and Chopin piano concertos with Ukrainian orchestras. Alexei went on to achieve first prizes at the Vladimir Horowitz International Piano Competition in Kiev and the Shanghai International Piano Competition in China.grynyukNew2

His musical development was shaped by his studies at the Kiev Conservatoire under Natalia Gridneva and Valery Kozlov. He also won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he studied with Hamish Milne.

Alexei Grynyuk performs throughout the world and has been invited to give recitals at the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatoire, Kremlin, Wigmore Hall in London, Salle Cortot and Salle Gaveau in Paris, ‘Musica Sacra’ Festival’ in Netherlands, Duszniki Chopin Festival in Poland, Newport Music Festival in United States, and other prestigious festivals and venues. He has performed concertos with the Mexico State Symphony Orchestra, Krakow Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, and the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra among others.

His concerts have been broadcast by BBC Radio 3, Hessicher Rundfunk, Bayerischer Rundfunk, KRO4 Hilversum, Radio France and televised on Ukrainian, Lithuanian, Chinese and Russian channels. His career has been generously supported by the Alexis Gregory Foundation, which led him to perform at the renowned piano series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Acclaimed by ‘Musical Opinion’ in London for his “breathtaking musical accomplishment with musicianship of the highest order”, Alexei Grynyuk was described by Le Figaro in Paris as a “master of transparent and sovereign touch … and virtuosity of great Russians” and by ‘Chopin’ Magazine in Tokyo as “….overwhelming with divine purity…majestic… he has captured the audience with a deep musicality…crystal clear and beautiful tone… dignified, beautifully structured performance.”

In recent years the music of Franz Liszt has been an important part of Alexei’s repertoire. 2011 he celebrated Liszt’s bicentenary at a special concert in Kiev, performing the composer’s Sonata in B minor followed by both piano concertos. Later in 2012 his performance of the Sonata was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 as a part of ‘Live in Concert’ series in which Alexei portrayed Chopin and Liszt and n 2013 Alexei released a Liszt CD on the Orchid Classics label.

His near future engagements include a recital tour of Ireland and a solo recital to celebrate 150th anniversary of Kiev Philharmonia Hall.
