Progetto Martha Argerich




Alexis Golovin


Born in Moscow in 1945, Golovin began studying the piano at the age of 5 with Anna Artogolevskaya at the Central School of Music and later at the Moscow Conservatory. He completed his studies at the Geneva Conservatory, where he won first prize with distinction, for virtuosity. A prizewinner at the Casagrande Competition in Terni and the Busoni Competition in Bolzano, he has given concerts in Europe, Asia and North and South America as well as at the most prestigious festivals. He has played in a duo with Martha Argerich and has given world premieres, including those of Ginastera’s Second and Third sonatas. He has maintained close connections with his native country and regularly performs in Moscow’s most important concert halls, including the Great Hall of the Conservatory; he also performs with the State Philharmonic Orchestra. Alexis Golovin dedicates much time to teaching – he is a professor at the Geneva Conservatory – and some of his students have won first prizes in various international competitions. He has made numerous recordings for the Radio Suisse Romande as well as 8 CDs for various European labels.
