Italian-Slovenian born, Alexander Gadjiev grew up in a musical family with both his parents well-known piano teachers and musicians.

The eclectic European culture of Gorizia, his city of origin, and a natural crossroads of peoples, cultures and languages, also had a strong influence on Alexander’s natural ability to absorb, process and rework, to his own taste, different musical styles and languages.

Studying piano with his father, Alexander made his concert debut at the age of nine, giving his first solo recital a year later. Alexander was awarded honours with his diploma at the age of seventeen and went on to participate in the Premio Venezia – a competition reserved for the best young talents in Italy, winning the 30th edition of the award.

Alexander received his Master’s degree at the Mozarteum of Salzburg, under the guidance of Pavel Gililov. Following his Master’s degree he took his Konzertexamen in Berlin under Eldar Nebolsin.

Alexander has played at prestigious piano festivals, including Verbier, the Rubinstein Festival in Łódź, the Chopin Festival in Duszniki, the ClaviCologne International Piano Festival in Düsseldorf, Piano Festival Rafael Orozco in Cordoba, the Ljubljana Festival, Bologna Festival, Settimane Musicali for the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, the Festival Animato de Paris, Ravenna Musica and the Kammermusik Salzburg Festival.
