Multiple gold medal winner of several important piano competitions, including two different international Franz Liszt piano competitions (Budapest, 2011 and Utrecht, 2017), British pianist Alexander Ullman impresses audiences worldwide with his deep understanding of the music, elegant touch and crystalline phrasing.
Ullman has performed at the world’s most prestigious venues including Wigmore Hall (London), the Musikverein (Vienna), the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) and more. He has already played with top orchestras around the world, including in St Petersburg, Philadelphia, Beijing and Seoul, and worked with eminent conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, and Miguel Harth-Bedoya.
His 2019 début recording on the Rubicon label featuring Russian ballet music was praised as “marvellous” (Gramophone Magazine) and “breathtaking” (The Sunday Times) with “beautifully delicate playing” (BBC Music Magazine) and “lucid colourful interpretations” (The Scotsman).
For this concert, Ullman brings together sonatas from three music giants: the witty Haydn Piano Sonata in G major, the charming Beethoven “Waldstein” Sonata, and the epic Liszt Sonata in B minor.
