With his thrilling virtuosity and inspiring musicianship, Yuri Bashmet has given the viola a new prominence in musical life. The pre-eminent viola player of the modern age, he has motivated the leading composers of our time to expand the repertoire with significant new music. At the same time he has also encouraged a deeper love and appreciation for the instrument by his heartwarming interpretations of the classics.

In addition to concerto and conducting appearances throughout the world, chamber music collaborations include projects with artists including Anne Sophie Mutter, Lyn Harrell, Martha Argerich and Evgeny Kissin.

Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists will perform a stunning selection of classical favourites including Bruch’s sublime Kol nidrei, Tchaikovsky’s beloved Serenade for strings and more.
