Audition video


Alexander Lubyantsev is a pianist with unique methods of music interpretation. His remarkable technique and variety of touch earned him 3rd prize in the XIII Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow, Russia in 2007. His fame made news at the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition, when his unexpected early exit was made into international news following ardent vocal protests. Organizers had to quell these never-before-seen demonstrations with an unprecedented press meeting over this matter. His popularity then propelled him to win the most votes to be awarded with the “Special Critic Prize.”

Widely acclaimed for his prodigious musical talent, he was a recipient of many international awards such as the Grand prix in All-Baltic Young Pianist's Competition in Narva (Estonia, 2001), the 1st prize in International Young Pianist's Competition (St. Petersburg, 2002), the 5th prize in Sydney International Piano Competition (Australia, 2004).
