About this Artist
Vladimir Spivakov founded THE MOSCOW VIRTUOSI, one of the world’s pre-eminent chamber ensembles, in 1979. Comprised of top-ranking soloists and former principal players of the great orchestras of Russia, the Moscow Virtuosi has been in demand ever since and has toured extensively throughout the world. The group made its long-awaited debut in the U.S. in 1987 and has appeared annually since 1989. The ensemble is the Resident Orchestra of the widely acclaimed Colmar International Festival in France, which will celebrate its 12th anniversary this year. The Moscow Virtuosi and Vladmir Spivakov have recorded a wide range of repertoire on the BMG/RCA Victor Red Seal label.
