About

Alexander Ullman was the winner of the 2011 Franz Liszt International Piano Competition in Budapest. He studied at the Purcell School, the Curtis Institute and the Royal College of Music. His teachers include William Fong, Leon Fleisher and Dmitri Alexeev. Alexander’s debut album on Rubicon was a recital of great Russian ballet music arranged for piano – Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Stravinsky – and received enthusiastic reviews from around the world. This album is his first concerto recording – the two Liszt Concertos are coupled with the B minor Sonata.

Reviews

Throughout the Sonata, Ullman’s natural grasp of Liszt’s rhetoric is striking. This presupposes a virtually inerrant hypersensitivity to the composer’s harmonic syntax. ... In Andrew Litton, Ullman has a collaborator who is also acutely attuned to the colours, textures, rhythmic subtlety and narrative drive that make Liszt one of the supreme masters of the piano concerto. ... These performances are not out to dazzle their listeners but to pull back the curtain on the unique imagination of one of the foremost architects of musical Romanticism. Very highly recommended.  Patrick Rucker
