Preludes and pictures: Alexander Gavrylyuk debuts at Wigmore Hall

bachtrack.com - 29 April 2013

Stepping in for the indisposed Cédric Tiberghien, the Ukrainian-born Australian pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk wowed Wigmore Hall’s lunchtime audience with a debut concert replete in masterful displays of pianism, in the purest meaning of the word.

All attention went to the 28-year old wonder pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk...The diabolical sprint of orchestra and soloist at the end of the concert was breath taking.When playing the encore, Mendelssohn’s wedding March, Gavrylyuk blew the listening orchestra almost off the stage....

Alexander Gavrylyuk (Ukraine, 1984) belongs to the very rare category of musicians whose possibilities could only be limited by taste and contextual interpretation. Technically, he can do anything. In Rachmaninov’s Third piano concerto, he showed how one note, warm and full, can float above the orchestra, in a state of natural free fall.

Gavrylyuk plays Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no.3

ABQ Journal - 15 March 2013
New Mexico Philharmonic/Hélène Bouchez, Popejoy Hall, Albuquerque

The initial approach to the Allegro was light and lyrical, even impressionistic, making the eruption in the middle – and explode it did – all the more dramatically arresting. The Ukranian pianist chose the original massive-chordal cadenza, rather than the more scherzo-like revision which Rachmaninoff himself recorded. Gavrylyuk has technique to spare producing voluminous cascades of sound too fast to be heard as individual notes but felt only as gossamer swirls of aural color, growing light and dark with harmonic and dynamic shifts.

Bach's Italian Concerto was given spacious treatment, its middle andante an essay in restraint with no urging at its two dramatic pedal-point climaxes, while the rapid finale preserved its jubilation along with a welcome clarity of texture and an unashamed variety of articulation and timbre employing the piano's resources with intelligent musicianship.
