Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sergey Khachatryan was born in Yerevan, the Armenian capital, in 1985. He comes from a family of musicians. From childhood onwards, he benefited from broad cultural horizons that favoured the musical career of which he dreamt. He began the violin at the age of five. The following year, he began his studies at the Sayat Nova Conservatory in Yerevan, continuing them in Germany when his family settled there. The exceptional qualities of this young virtuoso were revealed at a concert with the Orchestra of the Hessen State Theatre, Wiesbaden; he was then nine years old. From then on, foreign trips and prizes followed at regular intervals, with many concerts all over Europe - Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, France - as well Read more as in the USA, South America, Russia and Armenia. The coming seasonss are rich in exciting projects: with the Philharmonia Orchestra, with the BBC Philharmonic conducted by Neeme Järvi, with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam, the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Fedoseyev...then partner Anne-Sophie Mutter in Bach's Double Concerto with the London Philharmonic. When one asks Sergey Khachatryan whcih violinists he admires the most, he unhesitantly speaks of the supreme genius of the Soviet school. Above all, he evokes the magnetic tutelary figure of David Oistrakh. Sergey's first recording, released in EMI's 'Debut' series in 2002, allowed us to meet a violinist blessed with a glowing sonority and with musical intelligence rare in so young a musician. Now he has recorded, for Naïve, two concertos that figure among the jewels of the violin repertoire. Read less
