In the first recording of major new Live series exploring the full range of the violin concerto repertoire, German violinist Kirill Troussov, who is now widely recognised as one of the finest violinists and teachers of his generation, presents Mendelssohn’s sublime Violin Concerto in a live recording with the MÁV Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy.

German violinist Kirill Troussov launches a new relationship with Orchid Classics with the release of Mendelssohn’s sublime Violin Concerto, in a live recording with the MÁV Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy. This is the first of the new Kirill Troussov Live series, for which 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 are beginning this exciting series of releases with the irresistible charms of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, and 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.
