Mikhail Gantvarg

People's artist of Russian Federation


Mikhail Gantvarg has started his teaching career in the St.Petersburg State Conservatory. To the time of the Ensemble “Soloists of Saint Petersburg” was created, M. Gantvarg was already a mature and well-known artist with his own creative outlook and performance style. He is one of the last successors of the legendary St.Petersburg violin school, which gave birth to a whole "constellation" of world famous violinists. Trying to keep its best traditions, M. Gantvarg is always in the search of new ways of expression, sometimes coming to non-traditional, even paradoxical performance solutions. His generous and "classic" playing' manner, is combined with the creative freedom and improvising bits and total absence of routine. He is always in the process of co-creation with an author of the music he plays.

Mikhail Gantvarg and "Soloists of St.Petersburg" have recorded and released more then 40 CDs, containing such capital works as "All Piano and Violin Mozart concertos", monumental works by Vivaldi: "Harmonic Inspiration", "Fancies", "Four Seasons", unique by it's technical difficulties Beethoven's "Great Fugue", Six Sonatas by Rossini, a series of Bach's instrumental concertos, etc.

Since 2011 Prof. Gantvarg is a Rector of St.Petersburg Conservatory.
