Alexander's aspiration is to create contemporary classical music that stands out by avoiding excessive atonal complexities often associated with avant-garde music and refraining from unnecessary simplifications that are overly present in neoclassical compositions. 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.

Drawing from the traditions of Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and considering the modern trends introduced to contemporary classical music by neoclassical artists such as Max Richter, Ólafur Arnalds, Ludovico Einaudi, and others, Alexander has crafted his own recognizable compositional style.This style seamlessly merges the traditions of classical romantic music from the 19th and 20th centuries with neoclassical music principles.
