Conductor – Vladimir Spivakov
Sergei Dogadin, violin

The National Philharmonic of Russia under the direction of the outstanding conductor Vladimir Spivakov will perform the masterpieces of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Serenade for string orchestra and Concerto for violin and orchestra in D major. Soloist – the winner of the XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition.

“His spectacular artistry is backed up by reliable virtuosity: Dogadin knows the secret of how to captivate the audience, to keep the audience's attention.”
“Music life”

The brilliant performance of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in the final of the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition brought Sergei Dogadin a well-deserved victory.

“Concert for violin and orchestra by Tchaikovsky runs like a red thread throughout my life,” the musician said in an interview. – Considering that I have been performing with him for almost 20 years, the total number of performances of this work by me should not scare anyone – I played it three hundred times. Brilliant music! In each performance of the Concerto, I look for new details.”

Sergei Dogadin graduated from the St. Petersburg State Conservatory. Trained at the Yehudi Menuhin International Music Academy with Maxim Vengerov. He studied at the Graduate School of Music in Cologne and the Graz University of the Arts in the class of Professor Boris Kuschnir, with whom he continued his studies at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts.

Winner of the IX International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition in Hannover (Germany) and the International Violin Competition in Singapore Dogadin performs with orchestras under the baton of such masters as Yuri Temirkanov, Valery Gergiev, Vladimir Spivakov, Yuri Bashmet, Saulius Sondetskis, Alexander Rudin.

His concerts take place on the stages of the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic, Suntory Hall in Tokyo and Gasteig in Munich, in the Great Hall of the Conservatory and the Great Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic.

In November 2019, Sergei Dogadin brilliantly performed at the Zaryadye Hall with the Mariinsky Theater Symphony Orchestra.

“In solo fragments, Sergei Dogadin's violin filled the entire hall, retaining the feeling of a large amount of air, volume and space. This is probably an amazing property of the acoustics of this hall. The merit of Dogadin's performance is a magnificent sound: both on thick bass, and on transparent tops, in virtuoso passages and passionate recitatives of the violin – the nobility of sound was preserved,” the Rossiyskaya Gazeta wrote.
