Once professor Yablonovsky visited Alexs' family, and was playing piano. When he started to play a very difficult piece by Bach, Alex at age 5, stood next to the piano and sang the second voice of a very complicated fugue. Professor was amazed that 5 years old child could do something that Conservatory graduates couldn't. At the age of 15 Alex started to compose a few songs - with his own lyrics and music. In a short time some of the songs became very popular in Russia but no body believed that these songs were written by a teenager. In 1977 Alex arrived to New York to join the rest of his family who were already in America. There he met an outstanding professional musician Michael Lev and they became best friends. They worked together and released Alexs' first tape ' Russian songs', in 1989. Alex and Michael met another talented musician Michael Rasskazov in 1995.
