Alexej Gerassimez

Percussionist Alexej Gerassimez, born in Essen, Germany, is as multi-faceted as the instruments he works with. His repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary and jazz to minimal music whilst also performing his own works.

As a soloist, Alexej Gerassimez is a guest with internationally renowned orchestras (including NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover, Münchner Philharmoniker, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, SWR Symphonieorchester, Rundfunksinfonieorchester Berlin) under the baton of conductors such as Tan Dun, Kristjan Järvi, Eivind Gullberg Jensen, Alexander Liebreich and Jonathan Stockhammer.

The Düsseldorf Tonhalle has commissioned a new percussion concerto for Alexej Gerassimez from the New Zealand composer John Psathas to be premiered in September 2021. The world premiere was supposed to take place in June 2020 as part of the worldwide “Pastoral Project”, which was launched jointly with the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat on occasion of the celebrations for Beethoven’s 250th birthday (BTHVN 2020).
