A graduate of the Moscow Conservatoire and a prizewinner at the Viotti International competition in Italy, Alexander Ardakov lives  in England where, in addition to his performing career throughout the world, he is a Professor of Piano at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. 
The move to Britain and to Trinity, where has taught since 1991, has enabled him to develop as an international recitalist of exceptional versatility and musical integrity.   
Among his notable radio recordings are those for BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM.   
He feels at home not only with the Russian classics but also with the composers of the romantic period such as Chopin, Liszt and Schumann.   
Indeed, Alexander’s audiences are never left indifferent; they are swept up in the sensitivity, intensity and passion of his playing that takes them on a journey from the most tender and intimate perceptions to the dramatic peaks of life’s greatest moments.   
Each meeting with him is a virtuoso performance that leaves the hearer emotionally sated yet still thirsty for more.   
Alexander’s extensive discography includes Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Alexander Gibson.   
Further CD recordings are planned.
