Boris Brovtsyn


Debut at Zaubersee: 27 May 2017

Boris Brovtsyn has established himself as one of the most profound and versatile musicians of his generation.

He is in ever-increasing demand all around the world as both concerto soloist and chamber musician. His repertoire includes over fifty violin concertos and hundreds of chamber works, some of which he premiered.

Brovtsyn has performed with Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, London Philharmonic, Warsaw Philharmonic, the Royal Danish Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, Berliner Rundfunk, São Paulo Symphony, Academie of St. Martin in the Fields and the BBC Symphony, Philharmonic and Scottish orchestras among others.

A fourth-generation musician, Brovtsyn started to play violin under the guidance of his grandfather, a student of Lev Tzeitlin and Abram Yampolsky. After graduating from the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory where he studied with Maya Glezarova, Brovtsyn made his UK debut with the BBC Philharmonic conducted by Rumon Gamba and soon relocated to London. He completed his studies with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and has taught there himself from 2010 until 2016.
