Alena Baeva


With an already vast and rapidly expanding repertoire, including over forty violin concerti, Alena Baeva is a champion of lesser known works. Her extensive discography reflects the breadth of her repertoire, with recordings of Bruch and Shostakovich (Pentatone Classics), Szymanowski (DUX), Debussy, Poulenc, and Prokofiev (SIMC).

Ms. Baeva enjoys a particularly strong profile in Russia, working regularly with the Mariinsky Orchestra, MusicaÆterna, the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia ‘Evgeny Svetlanov’ (GASO), and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. Elsewhere, she works regularly with top orchestras and ensembles, such as the Israel Camerata, Luxembourg Philharmonic, Nordic Symphony Orchestra, Strasbourg Philharmonique, Stuttgart Philharmonic, and Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. Her international festival appearances include Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Germany), Baltic Sea Festival (Sweden), International Chopin Festival (Poland), Festival Internacional de Musica de Espinho (Portugal), La Folle Journée (France), and the White Nights of St. Petersburg Festival of the Mariinsky Theatre (Russia).

Recent and future concerto highlights include Staatskapelle Weimar (R. Strauss), Düsseldorf Symphony (Tchaikovsky), Freiburg Philharmonic (Bartok No. 2), South Netherlands Philharmonic (Szymanowski No. 1), Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire (Shostakovich No. 1), Orchestre National de Lille (Prokofiev No. 2), and London Philharmonic Orchestra (R.
