Nikolaj Znaider (violin)

Nikolaj Znaider performs at the highest level as both conductor and virtuoso violin soloist with the world’s most distinguished orchestras. He has been Principal Guest Conductor of the Mariinsky Orchestra in St Petersburg since 2010 and was previously Principal Guest Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. He has a particularly strong relationship with the LSO, an orchestra he conducts and performs with as soloist every season. Znaider also appears regularly with orchestras such as the Staatskapelle Dresden, Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony, as both conductor and soloist.

Znaider’s extensive discography includes Nielsen’s Violin Concerto with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic; Elgar’s Violin Concerto in B minor with the late Sir Colin Davis and the Staatskapelle Dresden; award-winning recordings of the Brahms and Korngold concertos with Valery Gergiev and the Vienna Philharmonic; the Beethoven and Mendelssohn concertos with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic; Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No 2 and the Glazunov Concerto with Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony; and the Mendelssohn Concerto on DVD with Riccardo Chailly and the Gewandhaus Orchestra. Znaider has also recorded the complete works of Brahms for violin and piano with Yefim Bronfman.

Znaider is passionate about supporting the next generation of musical talent and spent ten years as Founder and Artistic Director of the annual Nordic Music Academy summer school, and is now President of the Nielsen Competition, which takes place every three years in Odense, Denmark. He plays the ‘Kreisler’ Guarnerius ‘del Gesu’ 1741 on extended loan to him by The Royal Danish Theater through the generosity of the VELUX Foundations, the Villum Fonden, and the Knud Højgaard Foundation.
