“World-class violinist“ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) Kirill Troussov continues his Live series exploring the great violin repertoire with Max Bruch’s virtuosic and thrilling Scottish Fantasy, a work of great beauty despite being overshadowed by the composer’s most famous piece, his violin Concerto in G Minor.
This wonderful live recording with the Lübeck Philharmonic Orchestra brings us to the next recording of the series, Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto, to be released on May 5th.

Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy is the latest new release from the Kirill Troussov Live series, in which Kirill Troussov will explore the full range of the violin concerto repertoire, to be released as streaming-only EPs in partnership with Orchid.
Born in St Petersburg before becoming resident in Germany, Troussov is now widely recognised as one of the leading violinists on stage today, winning multiple awards and firmly established as a regular guest at prestigious concert halls and music festivals all over the world.
Teaching is also an integral part of Kirill Troussov’s work, with his reach and influence now even more extensive thanks to his innovative and hugely successful online masterclass platform, a major entrepreneurial venture that allows him to connect with other musicians around the world.
Troussov and Orchid began this exciting series of releases with the irresistible charms of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, and are continuing with Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy and Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto.
Troussov plays the Antonio Stradivari ‘Brodsky’ violin of 1702, on which violinist Adolph Brodsky performed the world premiere of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in 1881.
The start of a collaboration set to last several years, these EPs are all the more joyful and immediate for being live recordings, capturing the spontaneity and nuance of an outstanding soloist in concert.
