One can hardly play the violin more expressively and uncompromisingly than Gringolts. (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
The Russian violinist Ilya Gringolts wins over audiences with his incredibly skillful playing and sensitive interpretations and is always seeking out new musical challenges. As a sought-after soloist, Ilya Gringolts devotes himself to the great orchestral repertoire as well as to contemporary and rare works; he is also interested in historical performance practices. His concert programmes include virtuosic early repertoire by Tartini, Leclair, and Locatelli and premieres by Augusta Read Thomas, Michael Jarrell, Christophe Bertrand, and Albert Schnelzer. The 2020/21 season includes premieres of works by Bernhard Lang, Beat Furrer, Andrei Tchaikovsky and Nicolaus Richter de Vroe.
