The Philharmonic Concert Hall hosted a concert of the violinist Andrei Baranov, accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra of the Voronezh Concert Hall under the direction of the artistic director and chief conductor Yuri Androsov.

Andrei Baranov is the first violin of the David Oistrakh String Quartet, a unique ensemble he created together with leading young Russian soloists in 2012.

The programme included a concert for violin and orchestra "Seascapes" by Alexey Shor and Concert suite for violin and orchestra in G minor, op. 28 by Sergey Taneyev.

"The violin, which I have played for the past few years, is a very dear instrument for me. The master is Giovanni Battista Guadagnini. The violin was made in Cremona, which is very rare for this master; he worked there for less than a year, made about eight violins, of which only three have survived in the world. My violin is one of them, made in 1785. An amazing instrument, absolutely comparable in level with the Stradivarius violin, which I played before," Andrey Baranov shared with reporters.

The concert was organised with the support of the "Music for the Future" Cultural Foundation and the International Cultural Foundation.
