Greetings from Princeton & My Biography

Post by StanleyAlexandrowicz » Sat Mar 25, 2017 6:12 am

PERFORMER BIOGRAPHY

Classical Guitarist Stanley Alexandrowicz is internationally renowned for his thrilling virtuosity, poetic interpretations, and refined musicality. In addition to his command of the instrument’s standard repertoire, he has premiered and commissioned over 100 works by composers from Europe, Asia, the United States, Cuba, and Latin America.

A scholar and specialist in the field of 19th Century music, he often features unknown compositions by the Romantic guitar composer-virtuosi, playing on period instruments and revitalizing works which have lain dormant (often in manuscript form) for over a century. He has given lecture-recitals internationally on both Romantic and Contemporary music, including the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton – USA), the International Guitar Research Centre (University of Surrey – UK), the Baltimore Museum of Art (USA), and, the Harp-Guitar Foundation of America.

In addition to his work as an international soloist, he collaborates regularly in chamber music performances with some of the world’s leading musicians ― including internationally renowned soprano Dominika Zamara ― bringing together the worlds of opera, lieder, song, and contemporary music in realizations of unmatched sonic beauty and deep musical intelligence. Their duo debut CD “Ivan Padovec: Music for Guitar and Soprano” was issued on SHEVA Collection Recordings Italy (http://www.shevacollection.it), summer, 2015.

Performance highlights during recent concert seasons include London, New York, Venice, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, and Princeton, and include the U.S. premiere of Vácav Kučera’s Concierto Imaginativo-Homenaje a Salvador Dali for guitar and string orchestra (Baltimore) in honor of the composer’s 80th birthday year.

Dr. Alexandrowicz is currently Artistic Director of the New York Classical Music Society (NYCMS), and Artist-Professor at the Alion Baltic International Music Festival & Academy. He has served as Professor of Guitar at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), Director of the Bronx House Music School (New York), and has been on the faculty of Mercy College, New York (where he additionally taught music history, theory, form and analysis, and ear-training skills). A world- renowned pedagogue and “master teacher” he is an expert on guitar ergonomics.

You live in Princeton, but work in the city? That a long commute.
