Russian-born pianist and harpsichordist Alexandra Nepomnyashchaya is in great demand both as a soloist and as a chamber musician.


    In 2009 Alexandra Nepomnyashchaya graduated from the Faculty of Historical and Contemporary Performance at the Moscow Conservatory in the class of Olga Martynova, where she studied piano, harpsichord and fortepiano. Alexandra continued her studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Richard Egarr and Menno van Delft, gaining a Master’s degree. In July 2015 Alexandra graduated with the Zertifikatsstudium Meisterklasse Degree from the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München under Christine Schornsheim.

    Alexandra has won top prizes at competitions including the Prague Spring International Music Competition in 2012 and the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition Leipzig in 2014. Her love for chamber music and solo performance has brought her to major venues and festivals all over Europe, Russia and Asia. She has appeared at Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Barbican in London, as well as in the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht, Prague Spring International Music Festival, Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik and Hong Kong Arts Festival among others. She also appeared in Lapland with the Lapland Chamber orchestra playing harpsichord and modern piano in repertoire spanning four centuries. She works regularly with the Residentie Orkest, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and Academy of Ancient music.

    Alexandra works at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague as a keyboard repetiteur and coach. Her debut recording on fortepiano was released in 2009, featuring Mozart sonatas for piano and violin with violinist Sergei Filchenko. Alexandra and her husband Richard Egarr formed Duo Pleyel in 2017 to explore the exciting world of four-hand keyboard repertoire that is so often unjustly ignored. Their repertoire includes J. C. Bach, Dussek, Czerny, Hummel and Liszt, alongside Mozart, Schubert and later nineteenth- and twentieth- century composers.
