Alexander Yakovlev at Carnegie Hall May 11

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.

Yakovlev will present a recital at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, May 11, 2014 at 2PM. Tickets are $15 and available through CarnegieHall.org or by calling (212) 247-7800.

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.
