Ukrainian violinist Valeriy Sokolov will perform Dutilleux: String Quartet accompanied with Gautier Capucon (cello), and Lisa Batiaschwili (violin). This performance will be dedicated to Henri Dutilleux’s 100th anniversary and will definitely make a furor not only on Dutilleux’s admirers.
“Sokolov offers an attractive combination of silk and steel, he is alive to the lyrical sweetness of the Tchaikovsky and is apparently able effortlessly to turn up the heat when required…” CD Review, BBC Radio 3
Born in 1986 in Kharkov, Ukraine, Valeriy was awarded the Study Grant Prize at the International Pablo Saraste Competition in Pamplona, Spain in 1999 which provided him with a scholarship to study with Natalia Boyarskaya at the Yehudi Menuhin School, England. In September 2005, Valeriy took the ‘Grand Prix’ in the George Enescu International Competition with a performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. He also won ‘Best Performance’ for Enescu’s Sonata No. 3 as well as the ‘Enescu Foundation Prize’. He is generously supported by the Accenture Foundation as part of their young musician scheme.
