Presented by Maestro Artist Management
Maestro Artist Management is proud to announce a highly-anticipated performance by one of the world's most acclaimed chamber orchestras, Moscow Virtuosi, led by internationally-renowned violinist and conductor Vladimir Spivakov. Comprised of top-ranking soloists and former principle chairs of the great orchestras of Russia, the Moscow Virtuosi, under the leadership of Vladimir Spivakov, has been in demand at the world's most prestigious festivals and concert halls since its inception over 30 years ago.
The soloist for this performance is brilliant Russian pianist Alexander Ghindin, who rapidly established himself as a major force on the international scene since becoming the youngest prize winner ever of the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1994, later gaining 2nd prize at the Brussels International Queen Elisabeth Competition in 1999. IN 2007 he won the first prize at the Cleveland International Piano Competition, impressing judges with a performance of Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Cleveland Orchestra. The Washington Post raves: "...Alexander Ghindin is an uncommonly musical pianist and his concert at the Kennedy Center was in every way triumphal..."
Performing works by Mozart, Schnittke and Shostakovich
