First Prize at the Joseph Joachim Violin Competition in Hannover in 2012, and prizewinner at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and at the Singapore International Violin Competition, Alexandra Conunova has been hailed by her virtuosity, warm tone, impressive range of color, and flawless technique. In 2016 she also received the prestigious Fellowship by the Borletti-Buittoni Trust in London.

Conunova is regularly invited to the most prestigious festivals, such as Verbier, Gstaad, Montreux, Septembre Musical, Aix-en-Provence, Folle Journée, Besançon, Martha Argerich Festival, Ferrara Musica, Accademia Santa Cecilia…and collaborates as chamber music partner with Martha Argerich, Renaud Capuçon, Gauthier Capuçon, Denis Kozhukhin, Michail Lifits, Andreas Ottensamer, Gérard Caussé, Boris Brovtsyn and Jean Rondeau, among others.

Alexandra’s first recording of Prokofiev Violin Sonatas with Michail Liftis, on Aparté, was received with great acclaim. In Fall 2020, during COVID-19 lockdown and accompanied by an ensemble of friends and colleagues, she recorded and released Vivaldi’s Four Seasons also on Aparté, obtaining rave reviews.

Last July she played at the Tivoli Festival as soloist/conductor of Vivaldi and Piazzola’s Four Seasons, and appeared with the Aalborg Symphony and Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz. The 22/23 season will bring her NFM Philharmonic, Janacek Philharmonic, Orchestre National Avignon Provence, Norrlandsopera Orchestra, Pasadena Symphony, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, Orquestra Sinfónica de Tenerife and Orquestra Simfònica de les Illes Balears. She will return to the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, with performances in Lausanne and Geneva, and with the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

The upcoming season also features recitals at the Tsinandali Festival, Aix-en-Provence, Schloss-Elmau, Ferrara, as well as a duo-tour with Christian Zacharias, performing Mozart's Sonatas for Violin and Piano.

For the last 3 years Alexandra has had the pleasure to work under the guidance and mentoring of one of the world’s leading professor, Edouard Wulfson, in Geneva.

Alexandra currently plays on Giovanni Batistta Guadagnini, ca. 1785 ex “Ida Levin”, on a kind loan from a music lover.
