Alexandre Dossin - Piano

University of Oregon

Before joining the University of Oregon music faculty in 2006, Alexandre Dossin was a member of the faculty of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette from 2001–02, and from 2002–06 at the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire. Dossin's principal teachers were Sergei Dorensky at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory and William Race and Gregory Allen at the University of Texas at Austin.

 

In 1997 Dossin was the youngest person ever to receive the prestigious State Award "Ambassador of Rio Grande do Sul" in Brazil, and in 1998 he was the only student in the University of Texas at Austin School of Music to receive the Graduate Pre-Emptive Fellowship.

 

Conductors with whom Dossin has performed include Charles Dutoit, Isaac Karabtchevsky, and Michael Gielen, with orchestras such as the Buenos Aires Philharmonic, Brazilian National Symphony, Mozarteum University Symphony, and Tchaikovsky Conservatory Symphony. Dossin performed numerous live recitals for public radio in Wisconsin and Illinois, including the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series in Chicago. Dossin has performed in international festivals in Japan, Canada, the United States, and Argentina, in some occasions sharing the stage with Martha Argerich.

 

Critics have called Dossin a "wonderful pianist," "master of contrasts," "master of expressiveness," and “a stunning pianist with a symbiotic relationship with the instrument."

 

Dossin has four albums released worldwide by Naxos (Verdi-Liszt Paraphrases, Kabalevsky Sonatas, Kabalevsky Preludes and Liszt in Russia) and is an editor for the Schirmer Performance Edition Series (Tchaikovsky The Seasons, Tchaikovsky Album for the Youth, Prokofiev Visions Fugitives, Liszt Consolations and Liebesträume, Rachmaninoff Preludes, vol. 1).

Dossin is on the Board of Directors of the American Liszt Society (and president of the Oregon Chapter), College Music Society, and Music Teachers National Association. He is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who Among America's Teachers.
