he French-Russian violinist Fedor Rudin is quickly establishing himself as one of the most unique and polyvalent concert artists of today’s generation. He is prizewinner of prestigious competitions such as Premio Paganini in Genoa and George Enescu in Bucharest. In 2019 he was awarded the Ivry Gitlis Prize in Paris. His newest album Reflets was nominated for the International Classical Music Awards.

Earlier solo debuts have already taken the violinist to prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in New York, Berlin Konzerthaus, Paris Philharmonie & Tonhalle Zurich, with many world-renowned orchestras including the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestre de chambre de Paris and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal. He has played under the baton of conductors such as Vladimir Jurowski, Lorenzo Viotti, Darrell Ang, Isaac Karabtchevsky, Christoph Poppen and Maxim Vengerov. As a concertmaster of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic from 2019 to 2021, he was able to gain orchestral experience under the baton of conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Christian Thielemann, Zubin Mehta and Andris Nelsons.

A devoted chamber musician, Fedor is a founding member of Fratres Trio, hailed as “a new generation of classical music” by the press for their unusual combination of violin, saxophone and piano. The ensemble is a prizewinner of the Illzach international chamber music competition in Mulhouse and has received the Supersonic Award by Pizzicato Magazine for their CD Couleurs d’un Rêve.

Born in Moscow in 1992 and raised in Paris, Fedor’s grandfather was the famous Russian

avant-garde composer Edison Denisov. A graduate of Zakhar Bron at the Cologne High School of Music and Pierre Amoyal at the Mozarteum University of Salzburg, he then completed his studies with a postgraduate program at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in the class of Boris Kuschnir as well as a conducting diploma in the class of Simeon Pironkoff at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.

Fedor plays the “ex-Benecke” violin by Antonio Stradivari, made in Cremona in 1694, generously loaned to him by the Austrian National Bank.
