Maxim Vengerov recorded his first album at the age of 10 and won the Carl Fresch Competition in London when he was just 16. He studied with Galina Tourchaninova and Professor Zajar Bron and was a great friend of cellist Mstislav Rostropovich. All through his international career he has captivated the public with his extraordinary virtuosity and musicality and special charisma. He has performed with the world's most prestigious ensembles, such as the New York and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras and the London, Chicago and BBC Symphony Orchestras. He has toured extensively all over the world.
In the 2018-19 season, Vengerov was invited to open the season of the Orquesta Filarmónica della Scala conducted by Riccardo Chailly. In 2022, he celebrated 40 years on the stage with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London accompanied by great friends.
On this occasion, he will offer us a complete programme that begins with three pieces written in 1853 and composed by three great friends: Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. The concert will be rounded off by one of Alexey Shor’s piano sonatas and Sergei Prokofiev’s sonata for violin and piano.
