Grammy Award winner Maxim Vengerov to tour Australia

by | Apr 30, 2024

Universally hailed as one of the world’s finest musicians, and often referred to as the greatest living string player in the world today, Grammy award winner Maxim Vengerov will tour Australia to celebrate his 50th Birthday in August 2024.

Accompanied by one of Europe’s most iconic pianists Polina Osetinskaya, the master violinist will appear at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) on 5 August, Arts Centre Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on 7 August and Sydney Opera House’s Concert Hall on 10 August 2024.

Tickets to Brisbane and Sydney recitals go on sale today via Sydney Opera House and QPAC, with tickets to Vengerov’s Hamer Hall recital going on sale on Tuesday 27 February via Arts Centre Melbourne.

Vengerov’s most recent recitals include sold out concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall and London’s Royal Albert Hall. His last tour of Australia in 2015 was a sold out triumph, so his return in recital is set to be eagerly anticipated by music lovers across the country.

The superstar string player’s 50th birthday program also celebrates 42 years of public appearances with a program that will include demanding and exciting works by Ravel, Franck and Prokofiev as well as virtuosic encores.

Vengerov and Osetinskaya have performed together extensively, including to rapturous applause at Carnegie Hall. In the season 2023/2024 Polina Osetinskaya makes a number of her solo debuts at the Berlin Philharmonic, in London and in Laeiszhalle in Bach’s concerts without a conductor. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Polina has repeatedly expressed her pacifist position. In this regard, her concerts in Russia were cancelled by the government. She has since toured the world extensively including to both North and South America.

Music lovers are invited to be a part of this historic event, and witness true virtuosos live and in person at Australia’s greatest concert halls
