Remembering premiere cellist Alexander Buzlov, who tragically passed away this past weekend (November 8, 2020) at the age of 37.
Born in Moscow in 1983, Alexander Buzlov (also spelled Alexandre Bouzlov) was one of the most talented cellists of his generation. He won numerous awards and prizes, including the Grand Prix and the Audience Award at the Emanuel Feuermann Cello Competition in 2010. His debut recording with Viatcheslav Popruginon on Delos (DE 3350) features sonatas by Beethoven and Brahms and Schumann’s Five Pieces in Folk Style. He followed that recording with Classical Music Stars in Malta: Live from the Malta International Music Festival (DE 3545).
Tributes from his fellow artists have poured in from around the world. See some of them here, on Norman Lebrecht’s Slipped Disc.
