“A brilliant display of artistry on the violin” (Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger)
The French-Russian violinist Fedor Rudin is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting and gifted young concert soloists of today’s generation.
Among his prizes at International competitions are the 2nd prize and audience prize at the prestigious Paganini International Violin Competition in 2018, 1st prizes at Henri Marteau, Rodolfo Lipizer and Aram Khachaturian Competition plus a 2nd prize at the George Enescu Competition 2014 in Bucharest.
His recent concert engagements included solo debuts at prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in New York, Cadogan Hall in London, Paris Philharmonie, Vienna Musikverein, House of Music in Moscow, Tonhalle Zurich, Cologne Philharmonie, Dusseldorf Tonhalle and Hamburg Laeiszhalle, with many world-renowned orchestras including the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the National Orchestra of the Opéra Bastille, the Bulgarian National Orchestra, the Bretagne Symphony Orchestra, the Erfurt Philharmonic Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Weimar, the Nürnberg Symphony Orchestra, the Cape Town Philharmonic, the Paris Chamber Orchestra and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
Fedor is regularly invited to musical festivals such as Salzburg Festival in Austria, ArtenetrA, Musée en Musique (where he won the Audience Prize in 2012), Périgord Noir and Giverny chamber music festivals in France, Braunschweig Classics and Oleg Kagan Festivals in Germany, Musica Riva in Italy, Crans Montana Classics in Switzerland, and most recently Mozart Festival in Havana, Cuba. He has shared the stage with artists such as Maxim Vengerov, Shlomo Minz, Darrell Ang, Vladimir Altschuler, Christoph Poppen, Emil Tabakov, Conrad van Alphen, Igor Levit, Itamar Golan, Francois Dumont, Laurent Korcia and Vadym Kholodenko.
A devoted chamber musician, Fedor is a founding member of Fratres Trio, hailed as “a new generation of classical music” by the press for their unusual combination of violin, saxophone and piano. The ensemble was a recipient of the Best of NRW Concert Series Award in Germany, and has most recently received the Supersonic Award by Pizzicato Magazine for their CD release “Couleurs d’un Rêve”.
Born in Moscow in 1992 to a musicians family, his grandfather is the famous Russian avant-garde composer Edison Denisov. He has studied with Larissa Kolos, Miroslav Roussine, Svetlin Roussev, Zakhar Bron and Pierre Amoyal.
Fedor plays a fine Italian violin by Lorenzo Storioni made in Cremona in 1779, generously loaned to him by the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben Foundation in Hamburg. He became a laureate of the French fund “Fondation d’entreprise Banque Populaire” in December 2013.
