Info for Giuseppe Tartini: Violin Concertos
After devoting an album to sonatas by Giuseppe Tartini, for this anniversary year of the illustrious Paduan virtuoso, Evgeny Sviridov offers us a recording of violin concertos. This is his first collaboration with Millenium Orchestra, the ensemble founded by Leonardo Garcia Alarcon in the framework of CAVEMA in Namur. Most of the concertos selected come from manuscript copies made in eighteenth century Germany, where Tartinis reputation was very high. Evgeny Sviridov has found in these scores cadenzas and ornaments which are very probably in the hand of Johann Georg Pisendel, the great virtuoso violinist of the Dresden court, a friend (and interpreter) of Johann Sebastian Bach! Following a practice that was becoming increasingly common in Germany at that time, one of the concertos has two horn parts in addition to the strings. Of the 130 or so surviving violin concertos, Evgeny Sviridov has selected five.
Evgeny Sviridov, violin
is a violinist who combines successfully both modern and historical informed performances. His versatile activities as soloist, concertmaster and chamber musician demand an enormous repertoire that includes pieces of any genre and style from early baroque till ultra modern.
Born in 1989 in St-Petersburg, Evgeny got his first education at the Conservatory there. While studying he had already become a laureate of major international competitions such as Menuhin Competition in Cardiff and Paganini Competition in Genova in 2008. In 2010 he joined a Bach Competition in Leipzig and got there a first prize. This prize persuaded him to turn to authentic ways of playing and to studying baroque more thoroughly. In 2016 he got a first prize and audience prize in “Concours Corneille” in Rouen, France; and in 2017 Evgeny won Brugge International Competition "Musica Antiqua".

He recorded solo CD with Bach and Biber sonatas in 2011 by Genuin Classics.
