About me

     Alexandr Kislitsyn was born into a musical family with a long tradition in the arts. From a young age, his parents - both highly-trained and accomplished musicians - sought to encourage him to carry on in the family tradition. He made his debut with the symphony orchestra being six years old. His formal training includes a Bachelor of Arts in Violin Performance from Novosibirsk State Conservatory and a Master's degree in Violin Performance from Temple University. Currently, Alexandr is working on his Doctorate program at Temple University.

     Alexandr concertized throughout Russia, Europe, Asia, and North and South America, teaching masterclasses, giving solo recitals, and performing with symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles in such notable venues as the Carnegie Hall, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Kimmel Center Verizon Hall, Big Hall of the Novosibirsk Conservatory, and Thailand Cultural Centre Hall, etc. He is a winner of numerous national and international competitions and recipient of multiple prestigious musical awards; his extensive repertoire includes significant works from solo and chamber literature.

     Alexandr is an artist with Parma Recordings, constantly recording and releasing chamber music works with the Trio Casals on Navona Records as well as his record label, SK Records. Besides, he is developing a career as an electronic music producer while writing for other artists in various genres.

The awesome and eloquent Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004, seems for the most part to follow the conventional outline of the Baroque suite. The concluding movement of Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004 emphasis the most labyrinthine and intellectually powerful single movement ever devised for an unaccompanied string instrument. This is Bach's famous Chaconne (originally "Ciaccona"), a colossal arched series of 64 stunning variants upon the stark, open-ended four-measure phrase heard at the beginning. Two monumental outer sections in the minor enclose a major-key central episode, and this great structure encompasses every aspect of violin-playing technique and contrapuntal ingenuity that would have been known in Bach's day. The Chaconne, whose duration exceeds 15 minutes (and is thus longer than the rest of the work put together) is often performed as a free-standing movement and has also been widely transcribed for other instruments.
