Maxim Vengerov

Universally hailed as one of the world’s finest musicians, and often referred to as the greatest living string player in the world today, Grammy Award winner Maxim Vengerov also enjoys international acclaim as a conductor and has held teaching positions in the world’s leading conservatoires throughout his career.

From his first public debut at the age of 5, Vengerov dreamt of playing for people all over the world. He believes that music is a universal way to connect people regardless of their political or geographical belonging. Till date, Vengerov has played over 3,000 concerts and is glad to have spread the joy of music making with audiences around the globe.

Depending on repertoire, Vengerov plays on different instruments and bows, but most of the time he brings to concerts his faithful companion that has been with him since 1998 – the legendary 1727 “Kreutzer” Stradivari.

Vengerov is proud to be deeply rooted in the tradition of Franco-Belgian and Russian violin schools. His favorite violinists are Fritz Kreisler, Eugène Ysaÿe, George Enescu, David Oistrakh and Jascha Heifetz, to name a few.
