Piano Recital: Alexei Tartakovsky
Presented by Müzewest Concerts
Alexei Tartakovsky is one of the most promising young virtuoso talents of his generation. His beautiful sound, profound musicianship, superb technique and exciting artistic approach have thrilled audiences worldwide.
He first brought attention to his artistry by winning three top prizes in a one year span (2006-2007) at the Rolf and Brigitte Gardey International Competition in Daytona Beach, Florida, The New York Piano Competition, and the American Fine Arts Festival (AFAF) in New York, which resulted in his performing at Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall).
Immediately after, he achieved great success at the James Mottram International Competition in Manchester (UK) and received 1st prize at the Heida Hermanns International Competition in Westport (Connecticut). The chairman of the jury, Gayle Martin Henry, said about him: "Tartakovsky is a monumental talent. He has such a clear vision and ability to listen to himself. He is very special." The Westport newspaper "Patch" wrote: "Tartakovsky won the competition with unanimous decision by the judges, who called him a 'phenomenal' and 'first rate pianist.'"
Since then, he has been extensively performing both solo and with orchestra in the USA, Europe and Asia. As the winner of the New York Concert Artists International Competition, he performed in New York City and in Smetana Hall, Prague under the baton of Nurhan Arman. His most recent performances in Holland at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Theater Odeon in Zwolle, as well as his performances in Poland, had a huge resonance and were broadcasted on Dutch Radio 4 and Polish Radio 2 throughout Europe. Tartakovsky’s playing has also been broadcast on WQXR, New York City’s classical music station. The New York Concert Review called him “a thoughtful and serious musician."
A highlight of his career was his outstanding performance at the 2015 Chopin International Competition in Warsaw, where he reached the semifinal round. He received high praise from members of the jury, including Martha Argerich, Adam Harasiewicz, and Akiko Ebi, who called him a "fantastic musician and pianist." In 2016, Alexei was awarded the French Prize at the Cleveland International Piano Competition.
Among the artists Tartakovsky has worked with are Matti Raekallio at the Juilliard School, Nina Lelchuk, Boris Slutsky, and Boris Berman. He holds degrees from CUNY Queens College, Peabody Conservatory, and the Yale School of Music.
