Known for his often unusual musical and programmatic decisions, Alexander Melnikov has had a career-long interest in historically informed performance and performs regularly with distinguished period ensembles including the Freiburger Barockorchester and Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
As a soloist, Alexander Melnikov has performed with orchestras including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra and BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, under conductors such as Charles Dutoit, Paavo Järvi and Vladimir Jurowski.
An essential part of Melnikov’s work is intensive chamber music collaboration with partners such as Isabelle Faust, Antoine Tamestit and Jean-Guihen Queyras. He records with harmonia mundi.
