Passionate music with heat generated by virtuosity and vibrant orchestrations. In between glorious outbursts, some of the most ravishing moments come from the performers’ finesse of touch. Alexander Schimpf, winner of the Cleveland International Piano Competition in 2011, astounded the audience in Severance Hall with his innate musicality and coloristic invention.
