Violinist Sergey Khachatryan is the soloist in an OPL concert featuring Dmitri Shostakovich’s first violin concerto.
The Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg conducted by Jiří Bělohlávek performs a concert this Friday with award-winning violinist Sergey Khachatryan (photo by Philippe Gontier). In 2000 Khachatryan became youngest winner in history of the Sibelius Violin Competition.
Now a recording artist for Naïve Records and an accomplished concert performer, the Armenian violinist has won critical acclaim from the likes of the Seattle Times, which said: “He doesn’t play like a competition winner; there was no sense of the mainstream or of ‘playing it safe’ in his deeply sensitive, impassioned performance of the Shostakovich Violin Concerto N° 1.”
Also on the programme are Claude Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
and suite no.2 from Maurice Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé.
