About

Dubbed “a major artist” by the Miami Herald and a “quiet maverick” by the Daily Telegraph, pianist Alexander Korsantia has been praised for the “clarity of his technique, richly varied tone and dynamic phrasing” (Baltimore Sun), and a “piano technique where difficulties simply do not exist” (Calgary Sun). The Boston Globe found his interpretation of Pictures of an Exhibition to be “a performance that could annihilate all others one has heard.” And the Birmingham Post gushed that “his intensely responsive reading was shot through with a vein of constant fantasy, whether musing or mercurial.” Ever since winning the First Prize and Gold Medal of the Artur Rubinstein Piano Master Competition and the First Prize at the Sydney International Piano Competition, Korsantia’s career has taken him to many of the world’s major concert halls, collaborating with renowned conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Christoph Eschenbach, Gianandrea Noseda and Paavo Järvi and orchestras as the Chicago Symphony, Kirov Orchestra and Israel Philharmonic.

"For his latest return to Duluth, pianist Alexander Korsantia tackled Frédéric Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2, emphasizing the composer's sense of playfulness with the music in the first movement and showcasing his signature strength of finding the sweet spot to be heard playing against the orchestra."
