About Alleksandra

I am a highly professional and experienced violin player who can perform in a large array of styles
Violinist
Basingstoke
Public liability insurance of £10 million

My experience as an orchestral musician started when I was 14 years old, in a great Symphony Orchestra of my native town Chernigiv, as a member of the 1st violin section. I was lucky to play on stage with numerous soloists, instrumentalists, vocalists and conductors. I have performed with the following pianists-M. Lugansky, M. Suk, O.Polyansky, B.Berezovsky, violinists-M.Lackirovich, A.Bazhenov, E. Shuhmann, S.Syodgi, O.Semchuk, cellists-O.Knyazev, I. Kucher, conductors- M. Suckach, V.Sirenko, D. Andre, G. Stelutto, M. Takaya and others. Besides playing solo violin, I have acquired a knowledge of being an orchestral musician, by playing outstanding masterpieces of famous composers. I studied in Glier College of Music and was a concertmaster of a students' symphony orchestra. Despite the early start of exploring the world of symphonic music I have performed solo concerts in Ukraine, performed in string quartets, piano trios and as a duo. Upon entering Tchaikovsky National Musical Academy of Ukraine, in 2003, I became a member of the well-known National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine under the baton of M. Dyaduyra. From my experience playing in orchestras I have developed a large repertoire and excellent sight reading skills. In various Kiev Orchestras I have performed with some legends of Classical music such as-L.Pavarotti, M. Caballe, N. Gutman, K. Penderetzki, P. Godar, V. Kraynev, L. Isakadze and others. Whilst studying in Kiev I actively took part in numerous projects. I was a participant in the Festivals of Contemporary Music where we played masterpieces of Ukrainian composers and also the Summer Musical Academy in Kiev where we accompanied young musicians. As a student I was honoured to be a leader of Tchaikovsky Musical Academy Orchestra conducted by Roman Kofman. Additionally, I was involved in music festivals and concerts in Germany, France, Spain, Japan, Kuwait, Italy, Austria and Turkey. Furthermore, I played with Kamerata chamber orchestra, New Era Orchestra and Collegium Kiev during my senior years at Musical Academy. Since 2008 I have worked as a 1st violin onboard Cunard Line Ships such as Queen Mary 2. Also I had my own show as a quest entertainer on PnO cruises and Fred Olsen. I have an extensive experience in teaching violin as well as being a performer. I have full British residency and meet all the requirements in English language. Also I have a Bachelors degree with Honours from Glier Kiev National Higher Colledge of Music a Master of Music diploma from Tchaikovsky Musical Academy. Thank you for your time and consideration.
