One of the greatest violinists of all time
“Who says it has to be beautiful? Is nature always beautiful? Nature is beautiful because it’s not always how we expect it to be.” - Maxim Vengerov
Maxim Vengerov is considered to be one of the greatest violinists of all time. His radiant interpretations, the intensity of his sound, the great dramatic quality of his renditions and the exuberant musicality of his playing are rooted in the great tradition of the Russian violin school. In the course of his international career, Vengerov already played in the most important halls of the world. Despite his international fame, Maxim Vengerov is not an artist who rests on his laurels. Instead, he always thinks outside the box of classical-romantic repertoire, explores the possibilities of his instrument in search of new inspirations and involves himself in projects embracing genres such as jazz and rock.
An encounter with harpsichordist Trevor Pinnock in Salzburg led Vengerov to study the baroque violin, in order to be able to play early music in a historically informed way. Vengerov worked with superstars such as Yehudi Menuhin and Carlo Maria Giulini. Encouraged by his mentors Mstislaw Rostropovich and Daniel Barenboim, Vengerov took lessons with conductor Vag Papian and has been conducting himself since 2007. Both as a soloist and conductor, Vengerov has performed with such distinguished orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre, and the symphony orchestras of Chicago, Montreal and Toronto.
Vengerov is also passionately committed to supporting young talents, which he teaches at major music schools around the world. Born in Novosibirsk, he began his studies at the age of five with the famous teacher Galina Tuchaninova in Moscow. Later he studied with Zakhar Bron and won the first prize in the Karol Lipiński and Henryk Wieniawski Young Violin Player Competition at the age of ten. Maxim Vengerov is currently one of the most sought-after violinists worldwide. He plays the ex-Kreutzer Stradivarius of 1727.
