About

Alexander Paley is widely acclaimed for his dazzling technical prowess, his exceptionally broad and extensive repertoire of concerti and solo piano works, and the depth of his unique and personal interpretations.

Born in Kishiniev, Moldova, he studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Bella Davidovich and Vera Gornostayeva, completing his graduate work in 1981. He went on to win major awards, including the First Prize at the Leipzig International Bach Competition in 1984, the Bosendorfer Prize in 1986 and Les Victoires de la Musique Classique (France) in 2006. Prior to his defection to the USA in 1988, Paley performed frequently as a recitalist and soloist throughout the former Soviet Union and eastern Europe.

The year 2011 marked the 20th anniversary of Paley's festival at the Moulin d'Ande in Normandy (France). This festival, a week-long series of recitals, lieder and chamber music concerts, has been the subject of an hour-long documentary by Russian television which has been broadcast throughout eastern Europe as well as in Israel. In August 1998 he created a festival in Richmond, Virginia. It has drawn popular and critical acclaim for its bold programming and brilliant performances. He now divides his time between the United States and France.

This recording marks the return of Alexander Paley to disc, in hommage to Tchaikovsky, a composer who accompanied his studies at the Moscow Conservatory.
