First Prize winner of most important international violin competitions such as Henri Marteau, Rodolfo Lipizer and Aram Khachaturian, the French-Russian violinist is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting and gifted young concert soloists of today's generation.
His recent concert engagements included solo debuts at prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium in New York, Cadogan Hall in London, Paris Philharmonie, House of Music in Moscow, Tonhalle Zurich, Cologne Philharmonie, Dusseldorf Tonhalle and Hamburg Laeiszhalle, with many world-renowned orchestras including the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the National Orchestra of the Opéra Bastille, the Bulgarian National Orchestra, the Bretagne Symphony Orchestra, the Erfurt Philharmonic Orchestra, the Cape Town Philharmonic, the Paris Chamber Orchestra and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
Fedor is regularly invited to musical festivals such as Salzburg Festival in Austria, ArtenetrA, Musée en Musique (where he won the Audience Prize in 2012), Périgord Noir and Giverny chamber music festivals in France, Braunschweig Classics and Oleg Kagan Festivals in Germany, Musica Riva in Italy, Crans Montana Classics in Switzerland, and most recently Mozart Festival in Havana, Cuba. He has shared the stage with artists such as Maxim Vengerov, Shlomo Minz, Darrell Ang, Vladimir Altschuler, Christoph Poppen, Emil Tabakov, Conrad van Alphen, Igor Levit, Itamar Golan, Francois Dumont, Laurent Korcia and Vadym Kholodenko.
A devoted chamber musician, Fedor is a founding member of Fratres Trio, hailed as “a new generation of classical music” by the press for their unusual combination of violin, saxophone and piano. The ensemble was a recipient of the Best of NRW Concert Series Award in Germany, and has most recently received the Supersonic Award by Pizzicato Magazine for their CD release "Couleurs d'un Rêve".
