Only one and a half years later he won the second prize at the Swiss National Youth Music Competition. After such a short period of study Alexander already has in his repertoire virtuosic pieces of Chopin and classical pieces by Bach and Mozart. He regularly participates in the concerts organized by the school throughout Switzerland.
