People's Artist of Russia, deputy Artistic Director of the St.Petersburg Philharmonia graduated from the Leningrad Choral College named after M.I.Glinka and the Leningrad Conservatory, where he studied choral conducting with A.Mikhailov and opera and symphony conducting with M.Jansons. The creative activity of the musician, the laureate of international contests such as the Herbert von Karajan Foundation (West Berlin, 1982), V.Talich (Prague, 1985) and Min-On (Tokyo, 1985), is extremely rich. He led the Orchestra of the Zagreb Philharmonic, conducted the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bolshoi Symphony and the Russian National Orchestra. He has worked with such foreign orchestras as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the philharmonic orchestras of Rotterdam, Dresden, Stuttgart and Copenhagen, the symphony orchestras of Berlin and Baltimore, the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Scottish BBC Symphony orchestra and the New Japan Philharmonic.

From 2001-2010, Nikolay Alexeev led the oldest orchestra in the Baltic States - the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (for which the musician was awarded the State Culture Prize of the Republic of Estonia). At present, the artist’s concert activity covers the countries of Europe (Germany, France, Italy, UK, Belgium, Netherlands), Latin America, Japan and the United States.
