About

The supreme violinist of his generation – declared a talent “born once in a hundred years” by his first teacher – Maxim Vengerov both embodies and renews the great Russian tradition in the mastery of his instrument. This comprehensive collection – with Rostropovich, Abbado, Barenboim and Pappano among his partners – documents Vengerov’s achievements over the first decade-and-a-half of his international career. As the New York Times wrote of his Sibelius: “Not even Heifetz ... achieved the fevered pitch that stamps Mr Vengerov's performance from end to end.”

Released to mark the 40th birthday in August 2014 of Maxim Vengerov, this box set of 19 CDs and one DVD presents the entire catalogue of recordings he made for both Teldec and EMI Classics between 1991 and 2007. The box also celebrates the fact that Vengerov is once again playing regularly at the world’s concert halls, following his extended break between 2007 and 2011.

Born in Russia in 1974, Maxim Vengerov began his career as a solo violinist at the age of five. His first teacher, Galina Tourchaninova, said: “A child such as Maxim is born only once in a hundred years”. He subsequently studied with Zakhar Bron, one of today’s most distinguished teachers. Having triumphed in the Wieniawski Competition at the age of 10, he won the Carl Flesch International Violin Competition at the age of 15 in 1990, the year before he made his first recording for Teldec.

This box comprises 19 CDs of concertos, other works for solo violin and orchestra, and chamber music, plus a DVD of a documentary made in 2005 by British director Ken Howard: 'Maxim Vengerov: Living the Dream'.

Alongside such ‘essential’ works of the violin repertoire as the concertos of Beethoven, Brahms, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Sibelius and Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven’s ‘Spring’ Sonata, it contains a wealth of other works: major concertos from the 19th and 20th centuries, including those of Paganini (No.1), Dvořák, Glazunov, Nielsen, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Britten, Walton (the Viola Concerto rather than the Violin Concerto) and Shchedrin; sonatas by Brahms, Elgar, Ysaÿe, Mozart and Mendelssohn, and showpieces and bonbons by a wide range of composers, such as Wieniawski, Kreisler, Sarasate, Lalo, Saint-Saëns, Massenet, Ravel, Messiaen and Waxman.

Vengerov won Gramophone’s 1995 Record of the Year Award for his interpretation of Prokofiev’s Concerto No.1 and Shostakovich’s Concerto No.1 with the London Symphony Orchestra and Rostropovich: "If this isn't great violin playing then I don't know what it is. ... A triumph for all concerned" was the Gramophone reviewer’s judgement.

Having been Gramophone’s Artist of the Year in 2002, he went on to win a Grammy Award in 2003 for his recording of the Britten and Walton concertos, also with the LSO and Rostropovich.

All the CDs in the box are presented in wallets carrying the original CD artwork. The earliest of these recordings is a disc of sonatas (Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn) and the most recent is a programme of Mozart concertos in which Vengerov also directs the UBS Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra.

The contents of this box can be summed up with Gramophone’s view on the 1993 recital disc ‘Virtuoso Vengerov’: "He is such a masterful musician that everything he touches turns to gold."

DVD
Maxim Vengerov: Living the Dream
In this 2005 documentary, the world's leading violinist reaches thirty and embarks on a sabbatical year of self-discovery, revisiting his roots in Siberia, recording the Beethoven Violin Concerto with his mentor Mstislav Rostropovich and commissioning a challenging Viola Concerto from Benjamin Yusupov that required him to study rock and jazz improvisation on the electric violin with the legendary Didier Lockwood, and finally dance tango on stage. Director Ken Howard created a vivid portrait of a restless master talent, at the height of his powers but still searching for new dreams to realise.
