Tune in on Sunday, September 17 at 2 PM (ET) to hear Alexandre Kantorow's first performance as the new Gilmore Artist

We're coming to you LIVE from the Dalton Center Recital Hall in Kalamazoo, Michigan, for the 2024 Gilmore Artist Award recital.

Announced earlier this week by Dr. Pierre van der Westhuizen, Executive and Artistic Director of the Irving S. Gilmore International Piano Festival, French pianist Alexandre Kantorow has been named the recipient of the 2024 Gilmore Artist Award.

Kantorow is a former student of Pierre-Alain Volondat, Igor Lazko, Frank Braley, and Rena Shereshevskaya. At the age of 22, he made history as the first French pianist to win the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition as well as the Grand Prix.

Hosted by GBH Music’s Brian McCreath, the program includes Brahms’ Sonata No. 1 in C Major, Op. 1, Liszt’s transcriptions of Schubert’s Der Müller und der Bach and Die Stadt (from Schwanengesang), and Brahms’ transcription of Bach’s Chaconne for left hand — followed by an onstage conversation with Mr. Kantorow, Dr. van der Westhuizen, and Elizabeth Ostrow, Chair of the Artistic Advisory Committee.

Established in 1989, The Gilmore Artist Award recognizes an exceptional pianist with the potential to make an impact on today's musical landscape. The award will give Kantorow $300,000 — including a $50,000 cash grant to be used at his discretion and $250,000 that is typically dispersed over a four-year period of career development.
