Kiev-born pianist Alexei Grynyuk displayed tremendous interest in music from his early childhood and at just six years old started giving his first concerts. He attracted wide attention at the age of thirteen when he won the first prize at the Sergei Diaghilev All-Soviet-Union piano competition in Moscow. By then he had already been touring Eastern Europe as a soloist as well as performing Mozart and Chopin piano concertos with Ukrainian orchestras.
Later he went on to achieve numerous awards at international piano competitions including first prizes at the Vladimir Horowitz International Piano Competition in Kiev and the Shanghai International Piano Competition in China.
Equally at home in Classical, Romantic and Twentieth-Century repertoire Alexei Grynyuk has been invited to give solo recitals at many prestigious venues and festivals around the world, among them the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatoire, Wigmore Hall and the South Bank Centre in London, and the Salle Cortot and Salle Gaveau in Paris.
Enjoying world-wide critical acclaim Alexei Grynyuk was described by ‘Le Figaro’ as a “…master of transparent and sovereign touch…astonishing personality and absolutely transcendental virtuosity”.
Last season besides the successful concerto appearances with the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra, Brighton Philharmonic and Krakow Philharmonic Alexei Grynyuk celebrated an evening of Liszt’s Bicentennial in Kiev performing the composer’s B minor Sonata followed by both piano concertos.
