Alexander Markov was born in Moscow and studied violin with his father, concert violinist Albert Markov. By the time he was eight years old, he was already appearing as a soloist with orchestras and performing double concertos with his father. Markov emigrated to the U.S. with his parents and received his United States citizenship in 1982. Internationally celebrated violinist Alexander Markov has been hailed as one of the most captivating musicians now before the public. Mr. Markov has established a reputation second-to-none in the 19th-century virtuoso repertoire. Alexander Markov's musical journey takes him far beyond his activity as a classical violin soloist. He has composed "Rock Concerto," an original composition. "Rock Concerto" is a crossover epic which features Markov's performance on the new electric violin and his rock band, accompanied by a symphony orchestra and a chorus. Markov's vision is to bridge a gap between classical and rock audiences and attracting many young people who would otherwise never go to a symphony.
