Alexej Gorlatch was the winner in the piano category at the 2011 ARD Music Competition. His interpretation of Beethoven's 3rd Piano Concerto not only convinced the high-ranking jury, but also the audience, bringing him both a first prize and the audience prize.

Alexej Gorlatch was born in 1988 in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev and has lived in Germany since 1991. At the age of twelve he became a junior student at the University of the Arts in Berlin where he studied with Martin Hughes; from 2002 to 2007 he studied with Karl-Heinz Kämmerling in Hanover. After graduating from secondary school, he now continues his music studies there.

In 2011 the ARD Music Competition celebrated its 60th anniversary. It took place for the first time in 1952 in Munich, where it is still put on every year by Bavarian Radio. For many artists, Munich was the springboard to their international careers. Among the prize winners, we find household names as Jessye Norman, Thomas Quasthoff, Maurice André, Sol Gabetta, the Tokyo String Quartet, Yuri Bahmet, François Leleux, the Quatuor Ébène and many others.

“This recording shows off his refined and unerringly idiomatic artistry”

International Record Review

June 2012

“[Gorlach] is an assured musician. He plays wth commendable straightforwardness, not tempted to be different for the sake of it. His technique, as might be expected, is effortless, but his playing isn't glib. His music-making is clear-sighted and respectful...He trust the composer without ever becoming slavish or bland...As a calling card this release makes a very positive impression: these are seriously good interpretations.”

“These are riveting Beethoven performances from a player who with remarkable musicality demonstrates that he can play with both terrific flair and vibrancy together with palpable sensitivity. All in all this disc make for an impressive first look at a remarkably talented performer.”
