Russian-born pianist Alexandre Moutouzkine has claimed top prizes at many renowned events, including the Walter W. Naumburg, New Orleans, Cleveland, Montreal, and Arthur Rubinstein international competitions. Recent highlights include debuts at the Great Hall of the Berlin Philharmonic in Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Berliner Symphoniker, a chamber music concert in Lincoln Centerís Kaplan Penthouse with the Jasper String Quartet, and an appearance with The Philadelphia Orchestra on its "Beyond the Score" series. His own solo piano transcription of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, which he will play here in Kingston, opened Astral Artist's 2012-13 season with a performance in Philadelphia's Kimmel Center to rave reviews.
