Alexandre Kantorow in the spotlight

In this first week of the launch of our APP, which allows us to compare interpretations of classical piano works, we thought it important to mention the young French pianist Alexandre Kantorow, recalling that he is the first Frenchman to win the first prize of the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition: it was at the last edition of 2019.

You will surely be conquered by the great quality of his interpretations of Brahms or Liszt but also by the extreme virtuosity that he deploys in the Danse Macabre of Saint-Saëns transcribed by Liszt then Horowitz which makes it a phenomenal concert work.
