A former Fulbright Scholar, Aleksandr Tsiboulski has won numerous major competitions, including the 2006 Tokyo International Guitar Competition which led to an extensive Japan-wide tour. His musical interests range from Bach to Brazilian choros, research into the music of Manuel Ponce, contemporary chamber collaborations, early childhood music education, and working with the younger generation of Australian guitarists. His principal teachers were Timothy Kain, Ernesto Bitetti and Adam Holzman, while residencies at Canada’s Banff Centre provided further significant mentoring opportunities. Aleksandr Tsiboulski maintains a rigorous performing schedule, as well as dedicated teaching studios in Adelaide and Melbourne. His first disc with Naxos, Australian Guitar Music (2010) [8.570949] was nominated for Best Classical Album at the ARIA awards. Current projects include recording a groundbreaking new guitar transcription of Bach’s Cello Suites.
