Thirty years ago, virtuoso violinist and conductor Vladimir Spivakov joined with a group of his
friends and artistic associates–most of whom were winners of international music competitions–
to found the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra. Launching an artistic group at an artist’s
initiative was by no means common practice in the Soviet Union, since only governmental bodies
could authorize the establishment of professional orchestras. It was not until 1983 that the Moscow
Virtuosi gained official government recognition and support.
From its inception, the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra set the highest performance standards,
growing into a world-class, in-demand musical ensemble comprising top-ranking soloists and former
principal chairs of the great orchestras of Russia. Today, the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra is
one of the world’s preeminent chamber ensembles, treating its audiences to a unique performance
style and a huge repertoire ranging from Bach to Schnittke.
