ALEXANDRA Foundation SOS Talents - Michel Sogny
Alexandra was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1995 and started her professional piano studies at the age of 5.
Already at an early stage she met the famous French Professor and Composer Michel Sogny who shared his knowledge and special piano method with her and become her mentor.Not only did he teach her how to play the instrument technically and how to make music, he also advised her to start making musically inspired paintings so she would develop her fantasy and sensibility to the highest possible degree.
Her years with Sogny quickly resulted in her receiving praise and prizes. She was the youngest candidate ever to win the Moscow Young Talent Competition, the most important competition for up and coming talents organized by the Russian Ministry of Culture.
Michel Sogny’s Foundation SOS Talents’ has already supported Alexandra for over 18 years by giving her a scholarship and helping her gain many concert opportunities.
She performed with great success in Russia, Hungary, Switzerland, France, Lithuania and Georgia. Most of these concerts were broadcast live on Mezzo TV, Radio Suisse Espace 2 as well as on French Radio Classic. Alexandra’s piano repertoire is very wide and she is particularly attached to the music of Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov.
The very first live CD of Alexandra was recorded after an amazing success at the world famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
