Alexandre Kantorow: Ovationen für Debut mit Boston Symphony

Jubelkritiken für den 25jährigen französischen Pianisten Alexandre Kantorow bei seinem Debut in Boston mit Boston Symphony (Tschaikowski Konzert Nr. 2) am 7./8./9. April 2022:

»abundant occasions for ferocious virtuosity, of which French pianist Alexandre Kantorow, in his BSO debut, took full advantage. With blazing technique and supple musicality, Kantorow was fully equal to the work’s show-stopping first movement. […] Kantorow’s hurtling, rhythmically incisive account of the “con fuoco” finale then sparked a near-instantaneous ovation, which the pianist in turn acknowledged with two encores — arrangements from Gluck’s “Orfeo ed Euridice” and Stravinsky’s “Firebird.”«

»French pianist and 2019 International Tchaikovsky Competition winner Alexandre Kantorow as the concerto soloist otherworldly in quality as well: Kantorow sounded phenomenal.[…] this was Kantorow’s show, and what a show.«
