Alexandru Preda


  • Mirabellplatz 1
  • 5020 Salzburg

Alexander Preda started his musical education at the age of five. Since there was a small piano in the house, on which Alexander's mother used to play a little bit, the young boy would try to reproduce the tunes that he heard when nobody was around.

After some time, a friend of the family who happened to be a distinguished music professor at the Academy, heard young Alexander playing and enthusiastically said:
"Piano! This is what Alexander should study from now on!"

Thus, in subsequent years, Alexander spent most of his time practising the piano, learning and reading universal history, geography, philosophy, physics, literature and cultural history.

He "respected" mathematics or astronomy, without prefering them. He used to write, as a teenager, stories about pirates and exotic countries, and later on, aesthetics or philosophy essays for his own pleasure, never intending to publish them.

Alexander's most beloved composers of that time were Brahms, Beethoven, Wagner, Scriabin.
