Alexis Vassiliev was born in North Russia, in a musical background. He lives and works in Paris since 1991.

Ever since he was a child, he has learnt to play piano, then to sing. After studying the XIXth century style, he turned towards the XVIIIth and baroque music.

With diplomas by Gnessyn Academy (Moscow), he came to France, where he worked with Régine Crespin and Victoria Cortez. He attended also some master classes, specially with Paul Esswood.

Alexis Vassiliev’s voice is closely related to mezzo, as castratos, expressive and particularly intense. Thanks to his vocal technique, he displays a repertoire which runs from XVIth to XXIst century, where appear the large extend of his tessitura, rich colours and profund artistic commitment. Concerning operas, her voice is powerful and lets imagine what could be the art of the prestigious castratos, as Senesino for exemple.

He is also going forward to contemporary music.
