Alexander Voltz was twelve when his music was first performed in concert. Sincerely, he hopes things have improved since then.
Alexander’s music is often inspired by myth, politics and the historic, with undercurrents that aim to deconstruct and challenge the human condition. He has been commissioned, performed and recordedby various institutions and ensembles, including theAustralian Youth Orchestra, the Queensland Youth Symphony, The University of Queensland, Les Trois Graces, Brisbane Boys’ College, Loreto College Cooparoo and others. He was a winner in Artology’s 2015 Fanfare Competition (Sydney) and was shortlisted for his work Mirage by the Liszt Academy during the 2018 Bartok World Composition Competition (Budapest). In 2018, he conducted several performances of his Sontsovka across North Queensland. Alexander has undertaken studies in composition with Dr Robert Davidson, Dr Nicole Murphy and Catherine Likhuta, and is currently completing his Bachelor of Music at The University of Queensland. As of now, he is engaged in projects with Susan Ellis, the Queensland Wind Orchestra and the Southern Cross Soloists’ Next Gen Artists Program. Alexander also studies a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Ancient History/History and Writing.
Alexander calls Brisbane home and is fervently “pro-Northside!”
