Biography

Pianist and educator, Professor Alexander Tselyakov has been described as a "phenomenal pianist" (Germany), having "an intoxicating sound" (Israel), and "a perfect artistic individuality" (Russia) and "...represents the best aspect of Russian pianism and all its attributes... effectively synthesized the emotional balance of Arthur Rubinstein and the more highly-strung febrile quality of Horowitz." Harris Goldsmith, New York Concert Review.

He began his concert career with the State Philharmonic Orchestra in his native Soviet Union at the age of nine and went on to win one of the leading prizes at the VIIIth International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Alexander Tselyakov continues to actively perform on the world stage while holding a full professorship at the Canadian Brandon University.
