Pianist Alexei Gulenco is one of the finest Canadian classical music performers of his generation. Through his studies with Valery Kastelsky, a student of the great piano patriarch Heinrich Neuhaus, and such distinguished piano pedagogues as Naum Grubert and Larissa Dedova, Alexei refined his approach to piano performance to combine gargantuan virtuosity and overwhelming passion with sensitivity of touch and melodic beauty.


He is a graduate of several prestigious music schools including Moscow State
Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Royal Conservatory The Hague, and University of Maryland, where he obtained the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts. In his career, Alexei has won prizes at numerous piano competitions, including the International Rachmaninov Piano Competition in Moscow, the International Jose Iturbi Competition in Spain, the International Franz Liszt Competition in Italy, and many others.


As a recitalist and orchestral soloist, Alexei has performed and been recorded for radio and television in Russia, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Belarus, Latvia, Romania, Italy, Spain, Germany, the Republic of Georgia, Hungary, Moldova, Canada, and the United States. Since 2008, Alexei resides in Hamilton, Ontario; in addition to performing, he is on faculty at McMaster University and Mohawk College.
