Holland – St Petersburg
Dutch violinist Zinovy Vinnikov has recorded another programme at the Petersburg Recording Studio. His brilliant career began at the St Petersburg Conservatorium where he was taught by Mikhail Vaiman and Benjamin Shere – a student of the legendary founder of the St Petersburg violin school Leopold Auer. While still a student Vinnikov won the USSR violin competition and later won prizes at the Tchaikovsky competition in Moscow and at the most prestigious Queen Elizabeth competition in Brussels. Now a Dutch citizen, the musician takes part in numerous international projects. We are pleased that it has become a tradition for this great artist whose sound according to Yehudi Menuhin “Descended to us from the heavens” to record at our studio with a well known sound engineer Gerhardt Tses.
