Vladimir Spivakov and Moscow Virtuosi
25 th Anniversary World Tour
Show One is proud to announce a highly-anticipated appearance by one of the world’s most acclaimed chamber orchestras, Moscow Virtuosi, led by internationally-renowned violinist and conductor Vladimir Spivakov. The October 30th concert marks the ensemble’s return to the George Weston Recital Hall, following up a sold-out performance in 1996.
Moscow Virtuosi, formed in 1979 by internationally renowned violinist Vladimir Spivakov, has become one of the world’s preeminent chamber ensembles. Hand-picked by Mr. Spivakov, each orchestra member is a top-ranking soloist drawn in many cases from the principal chairs of the great orchestras of Russia. Moscow Virtuosi was in demand from the moment of its inception and has appeared throughout the world, winning outstanding critical acclaim. Vladimir Spivakov and Moscow Virtuosi have recorded over 30 CDs on the BMG/RCA Victor Red Seal label and can be heard on the Capriccio label.
“First rate string players honed by Vladimir Spivakov to a rare fineness of ensemble. What the violinist has achieved with this group is remarkable.” – The New York Times
“The Virtuosi strung players have a sound that would put many full orchestras to shame, and under Spivakov are an impressive and dramatically unified ensemble.” – The Washington Post
