One of my dearest and most talented friends is Alexander Mishnaevski, or “Sasha” for short. You will hear his amazing viola work on my Love, Spiritual and Hymn CD’s. And he’s got his own music to share so keep reading…
To give you a little insight into this virtuoso, Sasha has been called “Star-caliber musicianship … soulful … virtually flawless playing … intensity, accuracy and a warm, sweet tone … uncanny rapport … technical bravura and virtuosic deftness.” by critics about the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Violist.
Born in Moscow, he joined the Detroit Symphony Orchestra as Principal Violist in 1986. Mishnaevski also held the position of Principal Violist for the New York Chamber Orchestra, the New York Pro Arte Ensemble, Montreal’s McGill Chamber Orchestra and Orquestra Sinfonica de Xalapa in Mexico prior to joining the DSO. Mishnaevski has performed in chamber music concerts and in recitals around the world and has collaborated on chamber music projects with eminent players including Isaac Stern, Schlomo Mintz, Joseph Silverstein, Schmuel Ashkenazy, Franz Helmerson, Joseph Swenson and the Colorado Quartet, to name a few.
Here’s some info on on Sasha’s awesome CD, Symphony of Life…
Two Circles Music Co., comprised of keyboard-whiz Stuart Zalts and incredible violist Alexander “Sasha” Mishnaevski, is an Ontario-based band formed in 2007 who’s members are known for melding their distinct musical backgrounds into their compositions (hence the band name). Symphony of Life is TCMC’s very first album and features 12 phenomenal tracks, each single infused with the influence of rock, jazz and classical genres. This combination is part of what makes Two Circles Music Company so unique, and their music so magnificent.
Also, each track represents an episode from our daily life from the beginning to the end.
