The Sypert Salon Series is generously sponsored by Drs. George Sypert and Joy Arpin.
At just 16 years old, Alexandre Kantorow was invited to play for La Folle Journée in Nantes and Warsaw with the Sinfonia Varsovia. Since then, he has played with many orchestras, such as the Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra with Augustin Dumay, the National Symphony Orchestra in Taipei, the Orchestre national des Pays de la Loire, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège, the Orquesta Sinfónico Nacional de Colombia and others.
In 2015, Kantorow appeared in the opening season at the new Philharmonic Hall in Paris with the Pasdeloup Orchestra, and he returned in 2018 for the first concert of a tour with the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France. Kantorow gave his second recital at the Vuitton Foundation after a very successful recital of Russian music in 2016, which has since been recorded by BIS. BIS has offered Kantorow carte blanche with his choice in repertoire and, among his projects with them, all the works for piano and orchestra of Camille Saint-Saëns. In June 2019, Kantorow won first place at the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Russia — the first French pianist to have placed first in the history of the competition.
