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 Münchner Philharmoniker, Prager Radio Sinfonieorchester und Konzerthausorchester Berlin under the baton of conductors such as Tan Dun, Kristjan Järvi, Alexander Liebreich and Jonathan Stockhammer.

He is not only a phenomenal virtuoso, but also a creative and intelligent musician, with an incredible energy and great richness of colour. He creates solo programmes, performs with his own percussion group and is an enthusiastic chamber musician. A tour with star pianists Arthur and Lucas Jussen will take him through the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in May 2022. Concerts with jazz pianist Omer Klein follow in June 2022 with their jointly conceived programme “Firebird”. With the SIGNUM saxophone quartet Alexej Gerassimez goes on “a journey through the universe”, this successful programme “Starry Night” is also released as an album by Berlin Classics in spring 2021.
