Violinist and conductor

“ Sacha Brussilovsky is a most admired colleague and an excellent musician and violinist ... ’’
                                                                                                             Lord Yehudi Menuhin

Born in the Ukraine, Alexandre Brussilovsky completed his musical education at the Moscow Conservatoire under Yuri Yankelevitch, Maya Glezarova, Felix Andrievsky and Leonid Kogan. He won top prizes at several international competitions, including the Grand Prix at the International Prague Competition in 1969, and the Grand Prix and Albert Roussel Special Prize at the Jacques Thibaud Competition in 1975. In 1985, after having been prohibited from performing abroad for eight years, Brussilovsky was able to leave the USSR and establish his residency in France. He rebuilt his career, dividing his time between concert performances and teaching. At the same time, his dream of having his own ensemble came true on the creation of the Ensemble Ricercata de Paris.

As an international soloist, Alexandre Brussilovsky is invited to give master-classes at the Yehudi Menuhin School (England), the School of Music in Bloomington (Indiana University), the Longhy School of Music in Boston and the Alfred Schnittke Academy in Hamburg (Germany).  He also participates in numerous festivals and summer academies, such as those in Geneva, Nice, Les Arcs, Prades and New York, at the University of Montreal and the festival of the Chaise Dieu… Alexandre Brussilovsky is the artistic director of the academy Masters au Château de Crémault ant the French Music Festival Pont Alexandre III in Moscow, Lviv (Ukaine) and Paris. He is also artistic director of the Suoni e Colori recording label.

« … Un port d’archet royal et un jeu tout en finesse… le jeu de l’artiste anime la musique de l’intérieur et s’interdit de la brusquer… son Bach est à la fois lyrique et poétique… fugues magnifiques de structure comme de son, final admirablement architecturé… » 
Philippe Venturini, Le Monde de la Musique

Violoniste d'exception, reconnu par ses pairs… soliste raffiné, sensible…
                        Michel le Naour, Le Monde de la Musique

Der brillierte als Solist, verwirklichte seinen emotionalen Zugang zur Violine in überzeugender Manier, ließ seinen Ton zwischen zwitschernd jubilierender Süße und strahlender Ausdruckskraft variieren.
