Internationally renowned violinist Nikolaj Znaider delights audiences as both a soloist and conductor in this interpretation of the Concerto for Violin no. 1 by Mozart – written when he was just 19 years old – and the spectacular Symphony no. 7 by Dvořák.

Nikolaj is a brilliantly versatile musician, performing both as a virtuoso violin soloist and as a conductor with the world’s preeminent orchestras. He was appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the Mariinsky Orchestra Saint Petersburg in 2010, and was previously Principal Guest Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. Znaider enjoys a close relationship with the Filarmonica del Teatro Comunale di Bologna and will return to conduct the orchestra in June 2016.

Recording highlights of recent years are the Nielsen Concerto with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic, Elgar Concerto in B minor with the late Sir Colin Davis and the Staatskapelle Dresden, award-winning recordings of the Brahms and Kongold concertos with Gergiev and the Vienna Philharmonic, the Beethoven and Mendelssohn concertos with Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic, and the Prokofiev Concerto No. 2 together with the Glazunov Concerto with Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony. Znaider has also recorded the complete works of Johannes Brahms for violin and piano with Yefim Bronfman.
