Originally from Moldova, Alexandra Conunova won the First Prize in the renowned Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover in 2012. In 2015, she won the Singapore International Competition. After that, she reached the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition finals in Moscow before winning the Borletti-Buitoni Fellowship in London in 2016.

Since then, she has established herself as a leading soloist and has performed with the greatest orchestras, under the baton of Gergiev, Curentzis, Spivakov, Pletnev, Takacs-Nagy, Foster and Noseda. She has also performed at many prestigious festivals, including Verbier, Gstaad, Folle Journée, Martha Argerich, and Ferrara. In chamber music, she has collaborated with artists such as Michail Lifits, Renaud Capuçon, and Boris Brovtsyn.

She recorded Prokofiev's sonatas for violin and piano with Lifits (Aparté), Beethoven's Triple Concerto with the Insula Orchestra, and Laurence Equilbey (Erato).

She will soon be seen again at the Gstaad Festival in Sibelius' Violin Concerto with the Mariinsky Orchestra under the baton of Gergiev and at the opening of the Transiberian Festival in Turnage's Concerto for Two Violins with Vadim Repin under the direction of Andris Poga.

Appointed 'Master of Arts' by the President of her native Moldova, she founded the charity 'ArtaVie' to help disadvantaged families and children in her former school.

In recent years, Alexandra Conunova has been working with Eduard Wulfson. She is currently playing on a Guadagnini (ca. 1785), ex "Ida Levin", kindly loaned from a music lover.
