Pianist Alexander Ullman is establishing himself as a star on the international scene, boasting top-notch tuition, and an impeccable record of major prize competition wins. Ullman was born in London on June 29, 1991. Identified early as a talented player, he was enrolled at the Purcell School for Young Musicians. He went on from there to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he had several renowned teachers, including Leon Fleisher and Ignat Solzhenitsyn. He went on for further studies at the Royal College of Music in London, with Dmitri Alexeev and Ian Jones. By this time his competition, and soon his concert, careers were well underway. He took first prize at the Franz Liszt International Piano Competition in Budapest in 2011, the Tunbridge Wells International Young Artists Competition in Britain in 2012, and the Lagny-sur-Marne International Piano Competition in France in 2013. Soon after, he launched solo recital tours of Europe, North America, and Asia. By 2016, he had appeared with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony, and the Fort Worth Symphony. Appearances at major British and European venues included those at Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus. Ullman has been heard on the radio on national or regional networks in Britain, France, and Germany. Ullman's touring during the 2017-2019 period was genuinely international, including appearances in the Seoul Arts Center, Mexico, the country of Georgia, and several Chinese cities. During this period, he also made his first major chamber music appearances with violinist Barnabás Kelemen. A second tour of China, as well as new tours of Japan and North America were planned for the spring of 2020. In 2019, Ullman released his debut album on the Rubicon label. Diverging sharply from the safe repertory chosen by most pianists for their first recordings, he programmed a variety of piano transcriptions of major Russian ballets: The Nutcracker, Petrushka, Cinderella, and The Firebird. ~ James Manheim
