Yossif Ivanov
violin | Belgium, °1986
 
Yossif Ivanov made an early impression on the international scene, taking First Prize at the Montreal Competition at the age of 16 and Second Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition two years later. Last season has seen him make his debut at Wigmore Hall in London with his brother Philippe and link up again with the Belgian National Orchestra and the Orchestre de Picardie. He has performed with the most eminent orchestras and conductors. Together with the violinists Lorenzo Gatto and Hrachya Avanesyan he founded the Trilogy violin ensemble, which performs not only classical masterpieces but also film music and jazz standards throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. His first recording, released on Ambroisie/Naïve, won the Diapason d’Or de l’Année in 2006. His first disc with orchestra, devoted to Bartók’s Second Concerto and Shostakovich’s First, was also very well received by the musical press. For his second CD with an orchestra, featuring works by Henri Dutilleux, Yossif Ivanov was accompanied by the Orchestre de l’Opéra National de Lyon under Kazushi Ono. His first steps in music were followed by further studies under Zakhar Bron, Igor and Valery Oistrakh, and Augustin Dumay. Yossif Ivanov is the youngest violin teacher at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Brussels.
