Russian-born pianist and harpsichordist Alexandra Nepomnyashchaya is in great demand both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. 


Alexandra graduated from the Faculty of Historical and Contemporary Performance at the Moscow Conservatory from the class of Olga Martynova in 2009, where she studied piano, harpsichord, and fortepiano.  Alexandra continued her studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Richard Egarr and Menno van Delft, gaining a Master’s degree. 

In July 2015 Alexandra graduated with the Zertifikatstudium Meisterklasse Degree from the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in München under Christine Schornsheim.


Alexandra has won top prizes at competitions including the Prague Spring International Competition in 2012, and the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition Leipzig in 2014. 


Her love for chamber music and solo performance has brought her to premier venues and festivals all over Europe, Russia, and Asia. She has appeared at Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Barbican Centre in London, as well as in the Utrecht Early Music Festival, Prague Spring International Festival, Innsbruck Festival of Early Music, and the Hong Kong Arts Festival among others.  She also appeared in Lapland with The Lapland Chamber orchestra playing harpsichord and modern piano in repertoire spanning four centuries. She works regularly with the Residentie Orkest in Den Haag, the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, and the Academy of Ancient music. 

Future engagements will take her throughout Europe, and to the USA with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra performing the J.S.Bach double concertos, and Mendelssohn double concertos.


Alexandra also works at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag as a keyboard repetiteur and coach.


Alexandra’s debut recording on fortepiano was released in 2009, featuring Mozart sonatas for piano and violin with violinist Sergei Filchenko.  

She and her husband Richard Egarr formed Duo Pleyel in 2017 to explore the exciting world of 4-hand keyboard repertoire that is so often unjustly ignored.  Their repertoire includes J.C.Bach, Dussek, Czerny, Hummel and Liszt, alongside Mozart, Schubert and later 19th and 20th century composers. 

Forthcoming concerts take them to Innsbruck, Madrid, Ghent and Namur.  Their first CD for LINN Records of works by Schubert was released in April 2020 and received excellent reviews.  This was followed in 2021 by the complete 4-hand music by Jan Ladislav Dussek which also met with critical acclaim.  Their latest release from November 2022 couples the early 4-hand sonatas of Mozart with sonatas by his ‘musical father’ Johann Christian Bach.


For Brilliant Classics label Alexandra has recorded music by F.Geminiani (released in 2022) and L.Boccherini (released in 2023) with violinist Igor Ruhadze, which received warm critical praise.


Alexandra’s first keyboard solo recording for LINN of Gottlieb Muffat’s extraordinary set of harpsichord suites ‘Componimenti Musicali’ will be released in April 2024.
