Alexander Motovilov is a pianist and composer based in Estonia. Holding master's degrees in both piano performance and composition, he has composed extensively for theater and cinema. Alexander strives to create contemporary classical music that sets itself apart by avoiding excessive atonal complexities, often associated with avant-garde music, and eschewing unnecessary simplifications, which can be a hallmark of neoclassical compositions.
Drawing inspiration from the traditions of Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, as well as contemporary trends introduced by neoclassical artists like Ludovico Einaudi, Max Richter, Ólafur Arnalds, and others, Alexander has crafted his own distinctive compositional style. This style harmoniously blends the traditions of classical romantic music from the 19th and 20th centuries with the principles of neoclassical music.
Beginning to release his piano compositions in 2019, Alexander has since amassed a vast global following, with his compositions being streamed approximately 40,000,000 times on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and others. During his live performances, he showcases his piano pieces accompanied by a string trio, which he assembled in 2023 for his solo tour across Estonia.
In his artistic endeavors, he devotes attention to crafting a musical language that exudes beauty, sincerity, and originality, ensuring it resonates with every listener and evokes a profound emotional response.
