Violinist Vladimir Spivakov returns to Chicago

Vladimir Spivakov and Aleksandra Efimova I am thrilled to announce the return of one of my favorite Russian artists: Vladimir Spivakov, a violinist and conductor of the acclaimed Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra.

Mr. Spivakov will be performing with pianist Olga Kern on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Symphony Center.

I loved meeting Mr. Spivakov at a reception that was held in his honor in November 2010, when he performed with the Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra at Symphony Center. Mr. Spivakov showed that he was a true artist and was both gracious and humble.

A world-renown violin virtuoso, Mr. Spivakov has performed as a soloist with the most important orchestras in the world over the last three decades. His performances have been praised for his refined artistry and intelligence, and I am so looking forward to seeing him perform again!
