US pi­anist Alexan­der Bern­stein, a pupil of John O’Conor, took the sec­ond prize at the last Dublin In­ter­na­tional Pi­ano Com­pe­ti­tion in 2015. He is one of the small num­ber of play­ers to have wowed at the com­pe­ti­tion with a piece by a liv­ing com­poser, Fred­eric Rzewksi’s Winns­boro Cot­ton Mill Blues. That forms the cli­max of his John Field Room pro­gramme, which builds up to it through Aaron Co­p­land’s Pi­ano Vari­a­tions, Beethoven’s Eroica Vari­a­tions and Liszt’s Sonata in B mi­nor.
