We’re delighted to welcome @alexandersitkovetskyviolin
back to the Moritzburg Festival this summer 👏🎻 Alexander Sitkovetsky was born in Moscow into a family with a well-established musical tradition. His concerto debut came at the age of eight, and in the same year he moved to the UK to study at the Menuhin School. Lord Menuhin was his inspiration throughout his school years and they performed together on several occasions.
Highlights include performances with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Munich Chamber Orchestra, Konzerthaus Orchester Berlin, and many more.
Alexander is a regular guest soloist in nationwide tours of the UK, including tours with the Brussels Philharmonic, St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra, and the Tonkünstler Orchester.
His critically acclaimed CPO recording of Andrzej Panufnik's Violin Concerto with the Konzerthaus Orchester Berlin commemorating the composer's 100th birthday won an ICMA Special Achievement Award.
Alexander was awarded 1st prize at the Trio di Trieste Duo Competition alongside pianist Wu Qian. He is an alumnus of the prestigious ‘Chamber Music Society Two’ programme at the Lincoln Center, and in 2016 received the Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award. Alexander is a founding member of the Sitkovetsky Piano Trio, with whom he has won various prizes including the Mecklenburg Vorpommern Kammermusik Prize. The trio has performed all over the UK and Europe including Alte Oper Frankfurt, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Wigmore Hall.
Alexander has shared the stage with Julia Fischer, Janine Jansen, Maxim Rysanov, Alexander Chaushian, Mischa Maisky, Natalie Clein, Éric Le Sage, Polina Leschenko, Julian Rachlin, Boris Brovtsyn, and many others. .
