Alexandre Danilevsky (Russian: Александр Данилевский; born in 1957 in St. Petersburg) is a Russian-born French composer, lutenist, vielle player, active in Metz, France. He is the artistic director of 'Syntagma', an early music ensemble noted in particular for interpretations of music by the trouvères, Italian composers from Trecento, and Russian and Ukrainian baroque composers.
