Biography

Internationally celebrated violinist Alexander Markov has been hailed as one of the most captivating musicians in the world today. Lord Yehudi Menuhin has written, ” He is without doubt one of the most brilliant and musical of violinists: Alexander Markov will certainly leave his mark on the music-lovers of the world and in the annals of the violin virtuosi of our day “.

The Gold Medal winner at the Paganini International Violin Competition, Mr. Markov has appeared with some of the world’s greatest orchestras including the Philadelphia Orchestra, l’Orchestre de Paris, the Montreal Symphony, the BBC and Detroit Symphonies as well as the Budapest Festival Orchestra. Concerto highlights include performances with such celebrated conductors as Lorin Maazel, Charles Dutoit, John Nelson, Neeme Jarvi, Sir Neville Marriner, Ivan Fischer and Franz Welser-Most.

Alexander Markov has established a reputation second-to-none in the 19th-century virtuoso repertoire. His recording of Paganini’s 24 Caprices for solo violin caused a sensation, and he remains one of the very few violinists who program the entire set in a single recital. A DVD of his performance of the 24 Paganini Caprices, directed by the legendary film director Bruno Monsaingeon, has recently being released worldwide by Warner Vision International.
