BBC Russia named Alexander Kobrin the "Van Cliburn of today", putting him in the front row of musicians of his generation.
Internationally acclaimed pianist Alexander Kobrin was born in 1980 in Moscow, Russia. He began playing the piano at the age of 5 and in the same year he was enrolled in the world-famous Gnessin Special School of Music. He completed his studies there with professor Tatiana Zelikman, and went on to further his skills at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire with professor Lev Naumov, completing his post-graduate studies when he was 25.

Alexander Kobrin is the winner of numerous international piano competitions - notably the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, and is a winner of the renowned Busoni, Hamamatsu, and Glasgow International Piano Competitions. He has received numerous special awards for his brilliant technique, his musicality, and his emotional engagement with the audience through music.

Since receiving the prestigious Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Gold Medal at the Twelfth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in June 2005, Alexander has solidified his reputation with an outstanding first tour of the United States.

Past performances include recitals at Bass Hall for the Cliburn Series and the Washington Performing Arts Society, followed by further debuts at La Roque d'Antheron, the Ravinia Festival, the Beethoven Easter Festival, the Hannover Prize Winners Series, Turner Sims, the Enescu International Festival in Bucharest, and the renowned Klavier-Festival Ruhr, with critics praising his "interpretative musicianship [and] considerable insight," and his "elegance, grace, and spirit."

His biggest passion in life is for performance, and every year he adds new, impressive collaborations to his ever-growing CV, touring extensively in Europe, Asia, and the US. He has collaborated with many of the world's major orchestras such as New York Philharmonic, Tokyo Philharmonic, Belgrade Philharmonic, English Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Verdi, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Moscow Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Dallas Symphony, Berliner Symphony, Chicago Sinfonietta, Birmingham Symphony, Warsaw Philharmonic, and many others.

Alexander has also collaborated with numerous leading conductors including Mihail Pletnev, Mihail Jurovsky, Mark Elder, Vassiliy Sinaisky, James Conlon, Claus Peter Flor, Alexander Lazarev, Vassiliy Petrenko and Yuri Bashmet, amongst others.

His appearances have featured recitals and performances in major halls worldwide, including the Louvre Auditorium and Salle Cortot in Paris, Wigmore Hall and Albert Hall in London, Munich Herkulesaal and Berliner Filarmonia Hall in Germany, Kennedy Centre in Washington, Avery Fisher Hall in New York, the Great Hall at the Moscow Conservatoire, Sheung Wan Civic Centre in Hong Kong, as well as the Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore, Sala Verdi in Milan, and many others. He has also performed at Salle Gaveau, Paris, where both Mezzo and ARTE broadcast his Two-Piano recital in collaboration with his friend of many years, French pianist Frederic d’Oria Nicolas.

Alexander has also made appearances and given masterclasses at the Festival Musique dans le Grésivaudan and the International Keyboard Institute & Festival in Mannes as well as at the International Piano Series and the Busoni Festival. He has given a recital tour of Italy including cities such as Milan, Rome, Florence, Bolzano, Verona, Palermo and many others. He has also given annual tours in Japan and China, and has performed with the Russian National Orchestra under direction of Mihail Pletnev.

Other engagements include a German tour with the Beethoven Academy Orchestra in Munich, Frankfurt and Dortmund, where he performed Chopin's Piano Concerto No.1; the Swedish Radio Symphony with Juraj Valcuha; the Ulster Orchestra with Kenneth Montgomery; Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin with Ludovic Morlot; the Warsaw Philharmonic with Eiji Oue; KBS Symphony Orchestra with Claus Peter Flor; the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Krzysztof Urbanski; Phoenix Symphony with Michael Christie; the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestras. In the US, his engagements include performances with the Fort Worth Symphony, Florida West Coast Symphony, Fox Valley Symphony, Fairbanks Symphony, Flagstaff Symphony, and Columbus Symphony Orchestras, with his "awe-inspiringly assured" technique consistently admired by presenters.

Alexander Kobrin's debuts with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall and the inaugural concert of the Bethel Woods Arts Centre were hugely successful; critics praised his "lyricism, which he couched in a thoughtfully shaped, singing line," noting, "when he addressed the barnstorming passages on their own terms, he did so with a steely edge and ample - if thoroughly controlled - force."

Other noteworthy critical acclaims include reviews in New York Times and Gramophone Magazine - describing his playing as "memorably personal and stylish" and "hypnotic," while many other critics noted his "feathery touch and sparkling passagework" and his ability to "set all the different kinds of tone colors and structures against each other to create contrast, and to illuminate tensions between light and shade, brightness and melancholy in a multitude of layers." The experience of hearing Alexander Kobrin live was well summed up by Nick Rogers, who, after hearing Alexander perform a Rachmaninov concerto, said: "Kobrin's dazzling dexterity certainly seemed supernatural to see, but his talent and performance [with the orchestra] was decidedly human." Indeed, as a performer, the exchange of experience, musicianship, and emotion are always at the forefront of his priorities. Alexander showed the strength of music in yet another way in 2005, when he was the first to give a charity recital in New Orleans, Louisiana after hurricane Katrina.

Alexander has always felt that there is a very special connection between teaching and self-development, believing the two to be integrally linked. He now divides his time between performing around the world and teaching, and is, in his words, "glad to have this balance between performing and teaching ... trying to continue on the path of the emotional approach [to music]." Though widely acclaimed as a performer, Alexander Kobrin, as a teacher, has been a true inspiration to many students through his passion for music. He served on the faculty of the Gnessin's Academy of Music from 2003 to 2010. Since 2006 he has been on the faculty of the IKIF at Mannes College of Music, and is now the L. Rexford Whiddon Distinguished Chair in Piano at Schwob School of Music of Columbus State University. In 2013, Alexander joined the renowned Artist Faculty of the Steinhardt School of Piano Studies at New York University in New York City.

Alexander Kobrin has been a jury member for several international piano competitions, including "Prix Animato", Paris , Bluthner International Piano Competition in Vienna and Neuhaus International Piano Festival in Moscow, Russia.

In addition to his performing and teaching, Alexander also regularly undertakes recording projects, working with various well-known labels from Quartz and King Records to Harmonia Mundi and Centaur Records. In addition to the Van Cliburn Competition disc from Harmonia Mundi (2005), which included Rachmaninov and Brahms, he has released three volumes of Essential Chopin, as well as a Brahms CD (Op.79, Op.116, & Op.119). His most recent projects include a new disk of Haydn (December 2012) with Quartz, and a Schumann disk, due to come out in 2014 with Centaur Records.

Five minutes of sprightly folkdance music warmed the audience Saturday for Symphoria's second masterworks concert of the 2014-2015 season. The program selections marked the 19th Century friendship of Johannes Brahms and Antonin Dvorak, and the memorable performance highlighted a brilliant collaboration among the local artists, conductor Case Scaglione and pianist Alexander Kobrin.

The curtain raisers: Brahms's "Hungarian Dance No. 19," which Dvorak transcribed from four-hand piano to orchestra, and Dvorak's "Slavonic Dance No. 7," also originally for piano, immediately established Scaglione's communicative rapport with the musicians of Symphoria, who responded masterfully to his elegant, concise direction.

Dvorak's "Symphony No. 7 in D minor," the composer's most obvious bow to the traditional Germanic symphonic style of his day, won a standing ovation from the crowd. Dark in mood and tonal color, the music is grave and introspective throughout, starting with the somber opening of the first movement, "Allegro Maestoso." Movement two, "Poco Adagio," provides a lighter mood, which was beautifully conveyed by strings and soloists.

By the third movement, the scherzo, a vivacious dance rhythm provides buoyancy, and the musicians expertly conveyed energy and texture in the opening section as well as in the gentle respite of the central trio. But darkness prevails, leading into the multi-themed finale and an ending that speaks of staunch determination and resolve. Whatever message the composer intended in this symphony, which debuted in London in 1885, the music and the richness of the performance prompted the audience to stand and offer extended applause.

This was a performance that will be revered and remembered as a landmark of the regeneration of exceptional classical music in Central New York.

The standing ovation for Dvorak's symphony paled, however, when compared to the audience's enthusiastic reaction to Alexander Kobrin's performance on Brahms's "Piano Concerto No. 2," a huge, four-movement emotional masterpiece. This was a performance that will be revered and remembered as a landmark of the regeneration of exceptional classical music in Central New York.

A dignified, exquisitely played invitation on French horn opens the piece, and Kobrin's response on the piano immediately establishes him as a master, pulling every iota of drama and delight from the score as he, Scaglione, and Symphoria perform with exceptional unity. Passion rises to climactic heights in the second, highly dramatic movement, and Kobrin's virtuosity becomes increasingly evident.

An expertly performed cello solo opens the third movement, the andante, with sweet melody, which is embellished by piano, and clarinets are highlighted in the mid-section of the movement. By the final movement, dance-like and joyful, audience members were mesmerized by the performance, sensing the satisfaction of a thrilling conclusion but hating the idea of having the concert end.

When the final notes faded, the crowd leapt up as one, cheering as Kobrin and Scaglione embraced, then shouting and continuing to applaud as Symphoria soloists were recognized for their contributions. This Symphoria concert will be talked about years from now as a landmark moment in the return of a classical music orchestra to Central New York.

Who: Symphoria With Case Scaglione, Conductor. Alexander Kobrin, Pianist.

What: Masterworks Concert, "Colleagues Across Borders."

Where: Crouse-Hinds Concert Theater.

..."Kobrin unleashed a fiery, bright-toned account of Chopin’s Douze Études, Op 25. These technical exercises, each designed to highlight a different pianistic problem, were delivered with transparent clarity — just the job for the Summer Academy students in the audience, who gave Kobrin a well-deserved standing ovation at the end."

He surrendered neither the smoothness nor the dynamic fluidity that the modern piano allows, and he gave his sense of fantasy free rein, using a shapely bass line to suggest drama in the opening Allegro and creating an almost confessional spirit in the central Andante cantabile.

Russian pianist Alexander Kobrin's dazzling dexterity certainly seemed supernatural to see…

Nick RogersState Journal Register

The final notes had barely faded before the audience seemed to rise as one, cheering.

Laura StewartNews Journal Review

His conceptions of music are always interesting, convincing [and] beautifully played

Donald IslerClassical Music Guide

He effortlessly generated a wide variety of tone colors and paid exquisite attention to the tiniest of phrasing details in Tchaikovsky’s war horse, the B-flat minor concerto.

Jonathan Neufeld

I have left the best to last. I first heard 25 year-old Moscow-born Alexander Kobrin when I was chairman of the 1998 Scottish international Piano Competition. Then his first prize-winning performances were more athletically than musically motivated. Now his playing has broadened to become mernorably personal and stylish. In Rachmaninov’s Op 33 Etudes-tableaux, everything is boldly and vitally characterised, the vertiginous whirlwind of No 5 in E flat minor turned from the usual manic chase into a superbly shaded and inflected drama. Both here and in the Second Sonat a(played in the 1931 revision), despite fire-storms of virtuosity, there is always room for everything to tell and Kobrin achieves a hypnotic sense of the music's dark necromancy. Brahms's Paganini Variations(for Clara Schumann, his ‘witch' Variations) are awe-inspiringly assured and any lingering doubts are silenced by a special imaginative delicacy in Chopin’s B major Nocturne. Harmonia Mundi's lavish presentation comes in excellent sound.

Bryce MorrisonGramaphone Magazine

…He played down the work's blockbuster qualities in favor of its lyricism, which he couched in a thoughtfully shaped, singing line. That isn't to say that he ignored the fireworks entirely, and when he addressed the barnstorming passages on their own terms, he did so with a steely edge and ample - if thoroughly controlled - force

Alex Kobrin’s interpretative musicianship was here at its very best, as he delivered a reading of considerable insight.

Robert Matthew-WalkerMusical Opinion

What a depth of feeling in the pathetique [of the Haydn Sonata in F] Adagio, and what delicate touch to the Minuet with his celebratory manner! The Sonata in E minor was delivered with the same stroke of elegance, grace and spirit. Likewise [in] the performance of Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen op.15…sensitivity and gracefulness elevated the performance into a special treat for the ears…Kobrin knew how to set all the different kinds of tone colours and structures against each other to create contrast, and to illuminate tensions between light and shade, brightness and melancholy in a multiple of layers.

Brunhild SchmeltingRuhr Piano Festival

Images of shimmering water and airy bells emerged from the concerto's dreamy slow movement. Kobrin's rubato -- that is, his stretching of phrases -- was tasteful while still furnishing a sense of freedom and space. An etude-like virtuosity was given full expression in the final movement.
