Attracting considerable attention across Europe and the US with her illuminating interpretations of a wide-ranging repertoire, the Romanian pianist Alexandra Silocea possesses a highly refined musicianship. Educated in Bucharest, Vienna and Paris, she made her debut with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra at Vienna's Konzerthaus in 2008, following it with a Carnegie Hall recital in 2009. It was Silocea's debut recording of Prokofiev's first five Sonatas (released on Avie Records in 2011) that brought her widely acclaimed recognition as a special talent and a performer to watch. Awarded Editor's Choice of the International Piano Magazine and Supersonic Pizzicato Award, the release heralded the arrival of Prokofiev interpretation that "has entered its age of enlightenment", revealing an artist both intellectually committed and intuitive in her flair. Her debut with the London Philharmonic and Vladimir Jurowski is being followed by concerto and recital engagements in the US, Canada, UK, France, Italy and Austria, and a series of new releases on Avie Records.
