Yuri Revich

 At only 22 years of age, Yury Revich already is a very mature and serious artist. As a newcomer of the old Russian Violin school, he is one of the mostyuri expressive musicians of his generation.

Yury Revich started playing the violin at age five and now studying with Pavel Vernikov. He comes from a dynasty of violinists: his father, grandfather and greatgrandfather were all dedicated to the string instrument. When Yury turned seven, he entered the Central Music Acadamy of the Moscow Conservatory as a student of Galina Turchaninova. Between 2005 and 2009, he studied under V. Pickaizen and then went to the Vienna Conservatory in 2009, where he is being taught by Pavel Vernikow. Furthermore, his teachers in Vienna and Moscow included Yury’s father, A. Revich and V. Vorona.

As he continued his professional career with the beginning of his studies at the Vienna Conservatory, Yury Revich founded the young quartet „Quatour du Soleil“ which, next to classical music, also plays romantic, baroque and contemporary pieces. Yury Revich is very versatile in his works: he finds it fascinating to play baroque music on historical instruments – for example with the harpsichordist Olga Fillipova – but equally enjoys working with modern influences. In order to fully expand on his repertoire, Yury also plays as a chamber musician in ensembles with renowned artists such as Gary Hoffman, Per Nystrom, Liana Isakadze, Lawrence Dutton, Robert McDuffie, Daniil Trifonov and others.

He records for Sony Classical, ARS, Odradek and OnePointFM labels, WDR, BR, Radio France, Radio slovenia, Radio Belgrad, among many European and American radio and television networks.As a soloist with an orchestra, Yury performs with many Orchestras, including Svetlanov State Symphony, La Verdi Milano, North-West Deutsche Philarmonie, Il Pomeriggi Musicale, Zagreb Soloists, Russian National, Moscow Soloists
and collaborates with conductors like Yuri Bashmet, Mikhail Pletnev, Zhang Xian, Yuri Simonov u.a.Especially in the Germanophone and Russophone regions, Yury Revich has successfully taken part in numerous competitions, both as soloist and as chamber musician. Among others, he won the David Oistrakh International Violin Competition in Moscow. He was also awarded the Russian Medal for „Generous Deeds for the Glory of the Motherland“.Whenever he is not at performances in all corners of the world – in 2009, he played his debut at Carnegie Hall and in 2013 at La Scala, Milan, he has performed at the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Berlin Konzerthaus, Vienna Musikverein, Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, Cadogan Hall London as well as the Preston Bradley Hall in Chicago and can be heard at many international festivals – Yury tries to use his music for charitable events. Together with the European-Russian Society for International Cooperation, where Yury functions as Artistic Director, he organized a concert in Vienna in 2011 for the victims of the tsunami in Japan. Additionally, he collaborates with the organisation „Kleine Herzen“ that helps Russian and Ukranian children. Yury also lives out his creativity in the film medium: He is practicing to direct and to act and has already produced a short film of his own.

Since 2008, Yury has been playing on a violin that was specifically built for him by the French master luthier Alan Karbonar, and now playing on a Balestrieri from 1783 which was generously placed at his disposal by the Goh Family Foundation in Singapore and the Amadeus International School in Vienna. Moreover, he was accorded the honor of performing on a Duke Alba Stradivari and a Guarneri del Gesu Ex-Max Rostal that were furnished by the Stradivari Society.

He is the Music Ambassador of the Amadeus Vienna International and Beethoven Center Vienna.
