For different years I was studying at International Academy for organists in Haarlem (the Netherlands) under outstanding organists such as Piet Kee, L.Lohmann, J.Boyer, Z.Szathmary, B.van Oosten, S.Rampe. Also I took part in masterclasses of L.Tagliavini, M. Chapuis, J.Guillon, E.Kooiman, Z.Szathmary, M.Haselboek, J.Joseph and other notable European organists.
Since 1997 I am a member of Russian composers Union. I have compositions for organ (solo and with ensembles) among my works.

I am a prize-winner of two competitions - Open-National (2000, Kazan') and Internation (2002, Gatchina Polotsk).

Since 2002 Alexander Udaltsov plays organ solo concerts in Moscow (at Catholic Cathedral and others) and in the main organ stages of many Russian cities. Also he plays with ensembles, chamber and symphony orchestras. Besides, he gave a number of recitals in Ukraine, Germany, Austria, Holland. He took part in International festivals in Russia and Germany, closing concert seasons in many cities, and also in concerts and fests, devoted to the memory of his teacher Oleg Yanchenko. Recordings of his concerts are sounded in different Russian Radio channels.

I play organ music of any styles and epochs from early baroque to the contemporary composers' works. The special place in my repertoire occupies the organ music by Oleg Yanchenko, who is an outstanding organ composer and improviser, well known in international organ cyrcles. Besides, I often play pieces by Gershwin and Piazzolla in my own arragements for organ.
