ON THIS DAY | Happy Birthday Maxim Vengerov!

The Russian-born violinist, violist, and conductor is widely regarded as one of today's most eminent musicians


Maxim Vengerov was born on this day 47 years ago.

A protégé of Zakhar Bron, Vengerov is a former first prize winner at the Karol Lipinski and Carl Flesch International Violin Competitions. In addition to his widely-acclaimed solo career, he is a prolific recording artist, earning, among others, Grammy and Gramophone artist of the year awards.

He currently serves teaching positions on faculty at London’s Royal Academy of Music and the Salzburg Mozarteum University.

Vengerov plays on the 1727 ex-Kreutzer Stradivari.
