The Golden Age of Violin Playing - Oleg Pokhanovski, violin and piano

Oleg Pokhanovski stands as an embodiment of virtuosity, not only as a violinist but also as a pianist and arranger. Over the course of his illustrious career, he has transformed more than 200 pieces for various instruments, including the violin and piano. Furthermore, he has graced over 2000 stages as both a soloist and chamber musician, garnering critical acclaim. Critics often draw parallels between him and the legendary Paganini, lauding Pokhanovski's playing as “brilliant”, “phenomenal”, and “extraordinary”. Pokhanovski's skill and dedication have led him to claim top prizes in 10 esteemed international violin competitions, such as the Premio Paganini in Genova, Pablo Sarasate in Pamplona, and the Scheveningen in The Netherlands. Notably, in 2022, he clinched the Gold medal at the Grand Maestro International Competition and the Platinum medal at the Trinity International Musical Competition.

 The inspiration for this album stemmed from Pokhanovski's admiration for renowned violinists like Jascha Heifetz and Fritz Kreisler. He was deeply moved by their innovative arrangements and transcriptions, which breathed new life into the pieces. These masters showcased the true potential of the violin and piano duet, driving Pokhanovski to embark on his own journey of musical exploration.
