Violin virtuoso, acclaimed pianist, at Music on Sunday

The Old School House arts centre continues serving up musical feasts

Classical music worthy of some of the world’s most famous concert halls will be performed in Qualicum Beach this weekend for Music on Sunday at The Old School House (TOSH).

Victor Kuleshov will play his violin and Eugene Skovorodnikov will perform on the piano Sunday, April 1.  The program will include works by Beethoven, Arzumanov and Kreisler.

Kuleshov, born in St. Petersburg, started taking violin lessons and playing ice hockey at the age of six.  In his late teens, he made his choice for the violin, and in 1979 graduated from the Music College of the St. Petersburg Conservatory.

From 1988 he started touring as part of a duet with Alexander Berlin. In 1990, Kuleshov was chosen as Concertmaster of the State Symphony Orchestra of St. Petersburg. In 1995 Kuleshov created a string trio that he decided to call The Modern Trio, after a classical music radio station which he helped to organize.

As a virtuoso violinist, Kuleshov has toured extensively in Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Germany, Finland and France.

His usual repertoire includes both modern works and the core of the classical canon including Brahms, Mozart, Tartini, Beethoven, Shubert, Schumann, Paganini, Tchaikovsky, Sarasate, Shostakovich, Hindemith, Stockhausen and Schnittke.

Pianist Skovorodnikov has been invited to perform in many of the famous concert halls of the world, such as St. Petersburg Philharmonic Hall, the Chan Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver, Theatre Bibiena in Mantova, Italy, the Grand Theatre in Shenzhen, China, Xinghai Concert Hall in Guangzhou, China, Centre for the Performing Arts in Kfar-Saba, Israel, and the Ghione Theatre in Rome.

Music on Sunday, April 1, goes from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at The Old School House Arts Centre, 122 Fern Road West, in Qualicum Beach.  Admission is $16.
