Featuring: Alexander & Daniel Tselyakov, two pianos
Pianist and educator, Professor Alexander Tselyakov has been described as a “phenomenal pianist”, having “an intoxicating sound”, and “a perfect artistic individuality”, and “...representing the best aspect of Russian pianism and all its attributes... effectively synthesized the emotional balance of Arthur Rubinstein and the more highly-strung febrile quality of Horowitz.” Harris Goldsmith, New York Concert Review. Alexander Tselyakov lives in Brandon, Manitoba where he has held a full-time position as Professor of Piano at Brandon University since 2003.
Daniel Tselyakov has been acclaimed for the sensitivity and depth of his interpretations and for the rare emotional intensity and bold energy of his performances. Born into a musical family Daniel began his piano studies at the age of five with his father, well-known Canadian pianist Alexander Tselyakov, before subsequently completing a Bachelor of Music degree at the Oberlin Conservatory with Angela Cheng and a Master of Music degree at the Université de Montréal.
