Alexander Melik-Pashayev (1905 - 1964)

Both a composer and a conductor, Alexander Melik-Pashayev studied initially with Nikolai Tcherepnin at the Tbilisi Conservatory and joined the Tbilisi Opera in 1921 as a répétiteur and as leader of the orchestra before being promoted to the position of conductor in 1924. Further formal study of conducting with Alexander Gauk at the Leningrad Conservatory followed between 1928 and 1930, the year in which Melik-Pashayev returned to the Tbilisi Opera as chief conductor. He joined the Bolshoi Opera in Moscow as a conductor in 1931, making his debut with Verdi’s Aida, and worked there steadily in this capacity until 1953, when he replaced Nikolai Golovanov as chief conductor, following the latter’s unceremonious sacking.
