Alexandra Denisenya

Alexandra Denisenya was chosen to represent Belarus in early March 2012 in a national selection organised by state television. Interestingly the competition, which she won over four other young musicians, was comprised entirely of girls.

Aleksandra won the right to represent Belarus in this year’s Eurovision Young Musicians after winning a national final in February. She was born in 1994 in Minsk, and as a young child her parents tried to guess what her future talent would be: ballroom  lessons, swimming or table tennis? But then she discovered music. When Aleksandra was 5 years old, her mother took her to the Republican Gymnasium College of the Belarusian State Academy of Music. After an audition she was suggested to go to a cimbalom class, and she met the instrument with surprise and delight. Whilst the violin, viola and cello have four strings, the cimbalom boasts 72!

Alexandra is currently a student at the Republican Gymnasium-College of the Belarusian State Academy of Music, and has won many national and international contests in her field. She has performed with leading orchestra bands in Belarus, as well as having performed in different countries of Europe and Asia- such as Bahrain, Belgium, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom. Belarusian composer Vladimir Kuryan edited one of his best compositions, "Concertino for Cembalos and String Orchestra", especially for Alexandra to play in this contest.

During her career to date she has won first prize in competitions in Kaunas, Chisinau, Moscow, Pskov, and of course in Minsk.
