“Young, virtuoso violinist Erzhan Kulibaev was superb … making the violin sound like it was literally crying in the very high registers.”
(Broadway After Dark)
Kazakhstan-born violinist Erzhan Kulibaev is firmly establishing himself as one of the new generation’s most dynamic and gifted young soloists.
A protégé of Professor Zakhar Bron, Erzhan won the 2015 S&R Washington Award, is a prize winner at the Wieniawski and Enescu International Violin Competitions, and former prize winner at the Demidovski, Lisbon, Novosibirsk, Hindemith, Buenos Aires and Wieniawski International Violin Competitions.
Erzhan has worked with conductors including James Feddeck, Valery Gergiev and Vladimir Ashkenazy (Madrid National Auditorium) and with orchestras including Orquesta Sinfônica de Tenerife, the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, the State Symphony Orchestra of Kazakhstan, Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra and Astana opera Symphony Orchestra.
Erzhan currently performs on the 1722 “Rode” Stradivarius – on generous loan from the Maggini Foundation.
“This superbly recorded disc is the most enjoyable chamber music disc – and the most interesting discovery – to come my way for some time.”
“Dressed elegantly in black, with a Stradivarius in his left hand, the young Kasak violinist, with a strong sound that swirled around each member of the audience, shone with an outstanding technique and convincing and emotional peformance of Tchaikovsky to finish with a standing ovation from the Argentinian crowd.”
“Young, virtuoso violinist Erzhan Kulibaev was superb in Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto (D major, Op. 35), making the violin sound like it was literally crying in the very high registers.”
