ALEXANDER FEHT     Composer • Poet • Translator 


Alexander Feht was born in 1961 near the Siberian city of Novosibirsk in Russia. He received formal musical education (piano, violin, musical theory and composition) but considers himself to be mostly self-taught. In 1987 he emigrated with his wife and son to the United States as a political refugee. He currently earns his living as a translator, and writes Russian poetry and music in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

The astute observer of contemporary classical music cannot help but note that, the more modern composers give their all to "atonal" or "experimental" schools of composition, the more listeners are driven to archival recordings of great works. There is today a hunger for music that, as in times past, satisfies the soul with melody, tonality, and harmony. Trained in the appreciation of the classics, Mr. Feht's work offers a pleasing alternative to most modern composition.
