Alexandre Anatolii Dimcevski
orchestra member, solo first concertmaster
Alexandre Dimcevski is a versatile artist: he makes appearances as a soloist and a chamber musician, while also working as a concertmaster and teacher. Born in France to a family of Russian and Macedonian extraction, he started learning to play violin under the tutelage of his father, who had himself been a student of Yuri Yankelevich’s, and thus his education commenced along the lines of the traditional Russian school. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Germany, in Cologne, where his teachers were Michael Vaiman, Zakhar Bron and Barnabás Kelemen. He also received guidance from artists like Viktor Tretiakov, Boris Kuschnir, Irina Medvedeba, Raphaël Oleg and Mikhail Ovrutsky. He received many scholarships, including, for example, the AIDA Scholarship. He has been devoting increasing efforts to performing chamber music. In 2013, he won the Cologne International Chamber Music Competition with his string quartet. Since then, he has appeared as a chamber musician in France, Germany, Hungary, Spain, Japan, Macedonia, Denmark, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and Indonesia with partners like Barnabás Kelemen, Vilde Frang, Maxim Rysanov, Fedor Rudin, Roman Kim, Yuri Zhislin, Danjulo Ishizaka, Jan-Erik Gustafsson, Alina Pogostkina, Peter von Wienhardt, László Fenyő, José Gallardo, Katalin Kokas, Dóra Kokas, Alexandre Castro-Balbi and Florian Noack. He has been a concertmaster with the Hungarian State Opera since 2016. Since 2018, he has also led the Arpeggione Kammerorchester Hohenems. He has taken the stage as a guest concertmaster in France, Germany and Denmark, and he has held master classes in France, Germany and Hungary.
