Bio

In 2013 Alexander specializes orchestral and choral conducting at the National Academy of Music “Proff. Patcho Vladigerov” in Sofia, Bulgaria in the classes of Proff. Plamen Djurov and Proff. Dr. Adriana Blagoeva. He conducts concerts with the Academy Orchestra and Choir with great success. At the academy he also studies composition and music harmony in great depth and is allowed to join the more advanced upper classes. 

In 2013 he is invited to write the film music for several short-length movies by renowned Bulgarian composer George Strezov (“Durvoto na Zhivota”, “Shibil” and others) and is present at orchestra recordings of trailer music and samples commissioned by leading Hollywood composers and organized by Strezov Sampling and Four For Music.  

In 2016, aged 21 he is approached by Yordan Kamdzhalov (“Echo Klassik” 2017) and invited to become his assistant conductor for his concerts around in Bulgaria and Europe. A year later is invited to take the positions of orchestra manager of the international GENESIS ORCHESTRA and music director, artistic consultant and singer-soloist of the innovative vocal ensemble Music Laboratory for the Human Self. During these years Alexander is responsible for selection of the orchestra’s and ensemble’s members, maintaining and developing their social media presence, communicating on various different levels related to the organization of the platforms and being part of the overall artistic vision of both the orchestra and ensemble. 

Between 2016 – 2020 he attends masterclasses in composition, conducting and singing from leading names such as Hans Zimmer (Oscar, “Interstellar”), Lisa Gerrard (Golden Globe, “Gladiator”), Eric Whitacre (Grammy, “Lux Aurumque”), Danny Elfman, Jacob Collier (9 Grammys), Yordan Kamdzhalov (Echo Klassik 2017), Mark Shapiro (Juilliard Faculty), Mike Verta, Christopher Young, John Powell, Finneas and others.

In 2018 he works closely with Yordan Kamdzhalov and Lisa Gerrard on the Gorecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs (No 2) and VEHADI concert and later CD released globally. The same year he also writes the music for the conceptual exhibition “STRAZHA”, under the high patronage of the President of Republic Bulgaria – gen. Rumen Radev.

He performes on stages around Europe with artists such as Lisa Gerrard, Ennio Morricone, Eric Whitacre, Yordan Kamdzhalov and others, in halls such as The Golden Hall of Vienna, Muzikferein, Arena Armeec, Hall 1 in NDK, Bulgaria Hall, Sofia and The Ancient Theatre Plovdiv. 

In 2020 due to his various ranging interests, he studies Suggestopedagogy with Dr. Vanina Boudurova (Dr. Lozanov Foundation) and attends sessions, workshops and lectures on the subjects of psychology, neurology, psychotherapy and logo therapy.  

In 2021 Alexander becomes Mindvalley Regional Ambassador and is invited to become a board member at Wonder Stories Foundation (Sofia, Bulgaria). Later in 2021 he is accepted in The Juilliard’s School, NY Summer Intensive Programs in Conducting, Composition and Piano. Later this year he also attends The American Academy of Dramatic Arts’s 5-Week Summer Acting Program.
