Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

During his lifetime, Carlos Seixas (1704-1742) was well known in his native Portugal as an eminent and much loved composer. From an early age, he dazzled listeners with brilliant keyboard skills, and his creative output eventually surpassed 700 works.

After his death, the popularity of Seixas' music undeservedly declined. However, since the second half of the twentieth century it has been enjoying a revival. Seixas displays inventiveness and wit in the characters, forms, and textures of his sonatas.

From flamboyant to deeply expressive, contemplative to fiery, they encompass a wide array of moods and emotions, and have the rare quality of speaking directly to the heart. This music is full of surprises. It never fails to delight the listener. Seixas' music is brimming with joy of life and vigor, a pure delight in which to immerse oneself. It has a universal quality, sounding equally eloquent on keyboard instruments from the harpsichord or fortepiano to the organ or modern piano.

Anya Alexeyev received her education at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, and the Royal College of Music in London, UK. Her performing career has taken her to many countries across Europe, as well as to USA, Canada, Argentina, Malaysia and South Africa. In addition to her active performing career, Anya teaches at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada
