Alexandre Cavaliere

Alexandre Cavaliere was conceived in 1985 in Mons, Belgium. His family was musical and he was surrounded with musical instruments. Alexandre develops his rhythmic sense at an early age by playing the snare drum with his father’s orchestra. Alexandre has already learned to play the drums and the piano at age 8. But it is the violin that Alexandre can express his rhythmic senses and musical sensitivity. Alexandre is a rock star thanks to Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt’s melodies. Alexandre is fortunate to be guided by fate in March 1998 when Didier Lockwood, Babik Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli are visiting him. Didier Lockwood and Babik Reinhardt can see the potential in the violinist’s hands by only a few notes. They are pleasantly surprised when they push the club door open to find a 12-year old child holding the violin. They are stunned at Alexandre’s young virtuosity and decide to invite him to Django, Or, Brussels, Paris, and Paris. It is the beginning a beautiful adventure that would lead to “L’ALBUM” (Hebra records). The young violin virtuoso realizes his potential quickly. Alexandre continues his studies while also moving from television to radio stations and concerts. His performances shine at festivals such as Antibes- Juan-les-Pins and Samois-sur-Seine. He has also won over the public by performing at the Princess Grace of Monaco theatre, Michel Jonasz concert at Olympia, and at the Festival Espoo Jazz (Finland ) and, finally, Dorado Schmitt’s performance of “premiere New York” for the Django Reinhardt festival in BIRDLAND. Alexandre has also had the opportunity to meet many musicians such as Bireli, Dominique Dipiazza and Stochelo Rosenberg.
