Welcome to Alexander (Sasha) Karpeyev’s website

‘This was a first rate recital from a pianist who has not featured nearly enough on our concert platforms.’

Robert Beattie, Seen and Heard International (2017)

‘…it was in epic scores by Medtner (the Sonata-Ballade) and Stravinsky (movements from Petroushka) that Karpeyev really triumphed, playing them with virtuosity and more: the deep, internalised musicianship of a master.’

Michael White, Catholic Herald (2017)

‘Karpeyev’s penetration of the [Medtner’s] unique harmonic language and architecture was fully authoritative. … The encore, Medtner’s Novella Op.17 No.1, was a further reminder of Karpeyev’s sensitivity and ear for nuance.’

Mark Ainley, Vancouver Classical Music (2017)

‘A truly brilliant recital. … Karpeyev delivered both power and delicate subtleties of dynamics and pace throughout his taxing programme. What style, what stamina!’

Andrew Connal, Latest 7 (2011)

Karpeyev’s artistic maturity was palpable, and it shone through every bar of his closing item – a commanding performance of Liszt’s B minor Sonata.’

Richard Bratby, The Birmingham Post (2007)
