Program notes

Born in 2001, the prodigious Alexander Malofeev has already racked up a host of prestigious awards, including the Gold Medal at the 8th International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians in 2014. The young virtuoso is unafraid to tackle the most notoriously difficult works in the piano repertoire, like Balakirev's Islamey, piano sonatas by Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, and Pletnev's devilish transcription of The Nutcracker. Marvel at Malofeev's lighting-fast speed coupled with a mature musical sensibility in this nonstop, action-packed 2019 solo recital from Paris's Fondation Louis Vuitton!
