Grieg Piano Concerto no.3

5 February 2011. Royal Scottish National Orchestra/Andrey Boreyko, Usher Hall, Edinburgh

Soloist Alexander Gavrylyuk gave an intelligent and stylish reading of this unconventional concerto where the pianist's contributions are largely part of the overall orchestral texture. However, Gavrylyuk knew precisely when to sparkle, delivering zippy glissandi in the variations and beautifully capturing the clownish character of the quirky first movement.

Alexander Gavrylyuks Solorecital mit russischen Werken, das von Piano Classics veröffentlicht wurde, zeigt einen exzellenten Pianisten, der virtuose Technik in den Dienst differenzierten Ausdrucks stellt.

Der gebürtige Ukrainer Alexander Gavrylyuk gehört zu den vielversprechendsten Pianisten seiner Generation. Der Weg des mittlerweile 28-Jährigen ist seit zwölf Jahren mit Wettbewerbssiegen gepflastert, und doch ist Gavrylyuk kein ‚Wettbewerbspianist‘, der eine individuelle Interpretationshaltung zugunsten makelloser Technik zurückstellte. An einer exzellenten Technik mangelt es ihm nicht; aber er stellt sie nicht um ihrer selbst willen aus, sondern im Dienste eines ausdrucksvollen Spiels. Davon konnte man sich in den vergangenen Jahren etwa anhand seiner Gesamteinspielung der Klavierkonzerte von Sergej Prokofjew überzeugen. Nun legt Gavrylyuk beim Label Piano Classics mit einem Solorecital nach, das im April 2011 in Holland aufgezeichnet wurde.

....That made a fine warm-up to the Prokofiev concerto. Since this is Gavrylyuk’s sixth season here, he got a hero’s welcome upon en- trance; plus, many knew to sit on the left to see his amazing hands fly up and down the keyboard. (Those on the right had a better view of his rapt facial expressions, including the relief at the brief pauses from incredible exertion that the solo part afforded him).

Los Angeles Times (excerpt) - September 9, 2010. Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto no.2

...Gavrylyuk, a Ukrainian in his mid-20s now living in Australia, was on fire in the huge first movement’s three cadenzas – eating up those octaves, the scales burning with visceral power – while drawing a wide variety of clearly articulated color elsewhere.  Coming out of the cadenzas, Tovey picked up on Gavrylyuk’s momentum and ran with it, his astute conducting minimizing such structural roadblocks as the strange pauses in the finale.

Young brilliant artists do have a hard time. Full of promise and continually highly thought of. Not everyone is able to stand the pressure. Even a skating hero like Sven Kramer can identify with this. The young Ukrainian pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk is ambitious and extremely talented. Critics and music fans alike praise the 25 year old to the skies, and worldwide fame is preceding him quickly.
