ArtistsSvetlin Roussev (violin)
Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra
Laureate of the Melbourne, Indianapolis and Long-Thibaud violin international competitions, Svetlin Roussev was widely acclaimed at the Sendai International competition which garnered him the 1st Prize but 2 special prizes as well.
With remarkable virtuosity and intensity, Roussev performs a broad repertoire, ranging from the baroque to the contemporary. He is renowned for his renditions of Slavic compositions and keenly promotes Bulgarian music. Acclaimed Bulgarian Musician of the Year in 2006, his home country honoured him yet again in 2007 with the Cristal Lyra distinction awarded by the Ministry of Culture.
Roussev is a regular guest soloist with various orchestras such as the Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra
Svetlin Roussev is playing the Stradivarius 1710 Composelice violin, kindly loaned by the Nippon Music Foundation.
To combine this first release of Vladigerovís violin concerto No.1 with Sibeliusí Violin Concerto is a juxtaposition of great interest: both Sibelius and Vladigerov studied in Berlin and both attached great importance to the folklore of their native countries. These distinctive works were written at an interval of only a few years, yet they seem to be crafted in opposing elements: one gives the impression of sculpting in ice, the other of subduing a raging fire.
