World of the Piano
Since graduating from Shenandoah Conservatory in 2016, Alexander Bernstein has forged an impressive career as a young artist who expertly traverses the worlds of classical and new music. His love of new music has led him to study and premier works by contemporary composers, such as Berio, Ligeti, Ives and Cage; and in 2015, he recorded a solo CD of works by the Irish composer Ryan Molloy. His solo recitals have been received to great acclaim in the United States, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Romania. Bernstein has fiercely performed in many competitions, winning second prize and the RTE Lyric FM Special Prize at the 2015 Dublin International Piano Competition, third prize in the 2015 Verona International Piano Competition, third prize in the 2015 Gian Battista Viotti International Piano Competition and first prize in the 2011 Irish Freemasons Young Musician of the Year Competition.
