Alexander Yasnev (born in 1984) — the graduate of the Musorgsky Musical College where he studied guitar at К. Ilyin. The young guitarist has already made his mark at the international guitar competiton, where he was awarded the title of laureate, and the world composers' contests, where he won the diplomant name.
Yasnev's guitar pieces are distinct for their exremely romantic, improvisational state, being meanwhile so very convenient for playing them. The author himself uttered the following: «These compositions are connected with some exact events from my life. They are penetrated with „Les illusions non perdues”, which undoubtedly support any composer's creation. I’d like to wish you, my interpreters and listeners, to be risen to the bait more often for to stay in blissful reverie. Let it seize your emotions or intellect, let the humour direct your intentions, or let it not, even if no sense of the past time or forces are left for illusion, no vestige, no dust... I mean the star dust».
