Vladimir Spivakov had gathered best Moscow musicians to form a chamber orchestra that became “Virtuosi Moskvy” (“The Moscow Virtuosi”). “It was a constellation of gifted people, and their aura was unique”, the maestro recalls. Nowadays, the musicians don’t know any uncharted territories of the world cultural space. Actually, it’s the only Russian orchestra to release its albums via two prominent record labels, BMG Classics and RCA Red Seal, with either classic or contemporary repertoire. Vladimir Spivakov, an outstanding violinist and conductor, has brightly realized his multi-faceted talent in the music art and in various fields of social life. As violinist, Vladimir Spivakov had passed the brilliant school of Yuri Yankelevich, a famous professor of the Moscow Conservatory. Not less was the impact of his second teacher and idol – David Oistrakh, one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century.
