Alexander Somov, cello

Alexander Somov was born in Bulgaria in 1975 and from the age of seven studied at the Sofia Music School, before attending the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama as a pupil of Stefan Popov. In 1998 he won the Guildhall School Gold Medal, an award earlier won by such musicians as the violinist Tasmin Little and cellist Jacqueline Du Pré. Many other awards, including success in the Royal Overseas League Competition, marked his remarkable early achievement. Appearances as a soloist have included performances of Dvorak’s Cello Concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra in St John’s, Smith Square, in London, and with the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra. He has recorded for Polish national television and radio and given first performances of works by contemporary Bulgarian composers on Bulgarian national television and radio. Alexander Somov was appointed Principal Cello with the Northern Sinfottia in September 2000 and made his début there as a soloist in February 2001.
