Victor Alexeeff began his conservatory studies at the age of 7 in Toronto. He showed great promise as a young pianist, having begun lessons at the age of 4, encouraged by his grandfather. At the age of 9, he appeared on the album "A Tribute to Walt Disney", and throughout his studies he appeared on numerous television and radio programmes. He received numerous scholarships as a student. He is renowned for his performances of works by Chopin and Prokofieff.
As well as completing formal piano studies and developing his reputation as a pianist, Victor explored and developed other interests and skills, which became integrated within his eclectic musical career. A major part of this is composition; he composes for film, television, and other outlets - his credits include such diverse projects as scoring for "Criminal Minds" and creating the music for a 700m tunnel at the Detroit International Airport . He has also performed experimental and rock music, and is a music producer.
Recently, he has released a new album: "Classics Unleashed". This album explores what the music of Bach, Vivaldi, and Beethoven might have sounded like were they composing in the 21st century with digital elements at their fingertips. Using modern technology, Victor reimagines the great works of these legendary composers.
