Since winning the “Newcomer of the Year” ECHO Klassik award in 2013 for his first Sony Classical recital disc, German pianist Alexander Krichel has established himself as one of the most promising young pianists of today. His third album for Sony, featuring Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto with the Dresden Philharmonic and Michael Sanderling, has been released in 2015 to great critical acclaim, and 2017 will see the release of a disc featuring works by Maurice Ravel.
Alexander has already made debuts with orchestras such as the Bamberger Symphoniker under Jonathan Nott, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra under Antonio Méndez, as well as the Tokyo and Kyoto Symphony Orchestras and the Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa.
A busy recitalist, this season’s debuts include the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and the Klavier Festival Ruhr for a performance at the Robert Schumann Saal in Düsseldorf. Further ahead, he will return to the Philharmonie Essen, make his debut at the Beethovenfest Bonn as well as at the Hyogo Performing Arts Centre in Japan. Recent solo performances have taken him to venues such as such as Konzerthaus and Philharmonie Berlin, Herkulessaal and Prinzregententheater Munich, Philharmonie Cologne, Tonhalle Zurich and Düsseldorf, Konzerthaus Vienna, Liederhalle Stuttgart, and he has given solo performances in Mainz, Bremen, Kiel and Leverkusen.
Alexander is a keen chamber musician and has collaborated with French horn player Felix Klieser, with whom he has toured Germany last season. Other chamber music partners include Albrecht Mayer, Klaus Florian Vogt, Gabriel Schwabe and Kirill Troussov.
On this family cruise, your loved ones will have their very own on-shore programme. Experienced supervisors ensure that special kids’ and teens’ excursions provide an exciting way to explore new places for all junior cruise passengers aged 4 and up. Naturally, we also offer family excursions* tailored to let you and your children explore together. Back on board, the children and their supervisors complete their eventful day by eating together in the Lido Café. If required, a babysitter* can look after your little ones afterwards. To allow you to sleep in peace, we also offer a lie-in service on days at sea: nannies will pick up your children at 8.00 hrs and take them for breakfast. And on days with shore excursions, adjusted supervision times allow you to take part in excursions* without your children. * Subject to a charge.
