FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Russian pianist Alexander Yakovlev is one of the most engaging and inspired artists working today, and for the past eight years he has been a formidable presence at international piano competitions.
In 2006, Yakovlev took the Grand Prix at Cultural Association “Fryderyk Chopin,” and the “Roma” International Piano Competition before winning first prizes at the “Neue Sterne” in Germany, the Moderne Compositore in Madrid, and the 2012 World Piano Competition in Cincinnati, Ohio.
This New York debut is part of the prize awarded by the World Piano Competition, an organization dedicated to promoting and celebrating the art of classical piano music.
This recital also kicks off the season for the World Piano Competition. In June, 24 competitors will travel from around the globe to Cincinnati to compete in the 2014 competition, where one exceptional artist will win $20,000 and the very same New York debut.
