“A brilliant display of artistry on the violin.” says the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger about Fedor Rudin.
Recently winning both Second Prize and Audience Prize at the prestigious 2018 Premio Paganini International Violin Competition in Genoa, the French-Russian violinist Fedor Rudin is quickly establishing himself as one of the most unique and polyvalent concert artists of today’s generation. His numerous awards also include first prizes at Henri Marteau, Rodolfo Lipizer and Aram Khachaturian competitions, and a second prize at the George Enescu competition. His newest CD album “Reflets”, recorded together with pianist Florian Noack, has been nominated for the International Classical Music Awards.
Highlights of the 2018-19 season include Fedor’s debut as a conductor with the Petrobras Symphony Orchestra of Rio de Janeiro and a recital at Berlin Konzerthaus. He will also perform again with the Nürnberg Symphony Orchestra, as well as at Crans Montana Classics Festival in Switzerland and Young Classic Europe Festival in Germany.
His latest concert engagements included solo debuts at prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in New York, Cadogan Hall in London, Paris Philharmonie, Vienna Musikverein & Tonhalle Zurich, with many world-renowned orchestras including the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the National Orchestra of the Opéra Bastille, the Bulgarian National Orchestra, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Weimar, the Paris Chamber Orchestra, the Cape Town Philharmonic and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. He has played under the baton of conductors such as Maxim Vengerov, Darrell Ang, Christoph Poppen, Conrad van Alphen, Isaac Karabtchevsky, Vladimir Lande, Daniel Boico, Benjamin Lévy and Anja Bihlmaier.
Born in Moscow in 1992 and raised in Paris, Fedor’s grandfather was the famous Russian avant-garde composer Edison Denisov. A graduate of Zakhar Bron at the Cologne High School of Music and Pierre Amoyal at the Mozarteum University of Salzburg, he is currently enrolled in a postgraduate program at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in the class of Boris Kuschnir, as well as in the conducting class of Simeon Pironkoff at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
