The concerto gives the soloist plenty of scope for fireworks and Ghindin’s playing was in turns forcefully athletic and surprisingly delicate. His hands merged into a blur during the difficult passages of the first movement, while in the third movement they danced elusively across the keys.

Russian Arts + Culture

Alexandra Chirac It must have been the thrill of their relatively young lives, playing a cornerstone of the repertory with the Cleveland Orchestra in Severance Hall. The lucky – and gifted – four were the finalists in the 17th biennial Cleveland International Piano Competition. It was Alexander Ghindin of Russia who garnered the whopping first prize for a series of muscular and assured performances, including a grandly conceived account of Liszt’s B-minor Sonata in the semifinals and a potent and nuanced reading of Rachmaninoff’sThird Concerto. Of the four, only Ghindin possessed the stage maturity of a world-class professional pianist.

A full week before he won first prize in the 2007 Cleveland International Piano Competition, Russia’s Alexander Ghindin leapt to the front of the pack with expressive and dazzling performances of Schumann’s Kinderszenen and three movements from Stravinsky’s Petrouchka. It was immediately apparent that Ghindin had something special to offer. Ghindin is a dynamic artist who also wraps his heart around lyrical phrases. Put another way, he has the power and speed of a virtuoso, plus the perception and poise needed to explore the inner workings of a score.
