The first half of the concert will feature the three musicians performing classical masterpieces from Vivaldi, Handel, Paganini, Prokofiev and more. After intermission, the mood will shift to rock‘n’roll when Alexander Markov performs several original rock music compositions on a gold electric violin, backed up by a rock band and orchestra and accompanied by 130 talented singers from middle and high schools in Stamford, Trumbull, Monroe, and Westchester.

Alexander Markov is presenting rock music in addition to his classical performance to attract a young rock audience without alienating classical music fans.  His earlier rock compositions include the Rock Concerto, co-written with James V. Remington, that premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2011. By offering both genres in the same concert, he has created a unique listening experience that appeals to audiences with various musical tastes and preferences.

  • About the Performers: 

Albert Markov and his family have lived in Norwalk since 1979, when they became American citizens after emigrating from Russia (then the Soviet Union).  A violinist, composer, and teacher described by the New York Times as “a complete wizard,” he is one of the few concert violinists to compose major classical compositions including operas, symphonies, and violin concertos that are performed internationally and are commercially recorded.  The Gold Medal winner of the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition, he has performed as a soloist with highly acclaimed orchestras and conductors over the years. Markov’s book on violin technique, “System of Violin Playing,” is considered a classic. His short stories and poetry appear in various publications.

Marina Markov played violin with the legendary Bolshoi Opera in Moscow and was a first violinist with the Bolshoi Quartet. After moving to the U.S., she played with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra at Lincoln Center and the New York State Theater. She continues to perform frequently with her family in the U.S. and abroad.

Alexander Markov, a Gold Medal winner at the Paganini International Violin Competition, made his solo debut at Carnegie Hall at age 16. As a child in Moscow, he studied violin with his father and at age eight, he was already performing double concertos with him on stage and appearing as a soloist with various orchestras. Since then, he has performed as a soloist with some of the world’s most celebrated orchestras and conductors. In 1987, he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. His video recording of Paganini’s Caprices, directed by legendary classical film director Bruno Monsaingeon, has received millions of views on YouTube and is considered a standard in the classical music community worldwide.

Markov’s original rock compositions include the Rock Concerto, co-written with James V. Remington, who also designed the patented electric violin.  This hour-long piece premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2011.

Heike Doerr, pianist; Tommy Champion, bassist; and drummer Dylan Wissing are the back-up rock band for Alexander Markov’s rock compositions.
