Siberian Virtuosi

The State Ensemble of Violinists from Yakutia, Russia 

Siberian Virtuosi, the State Ensemble of the Russian Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), an ensemble of violinists and a pianist, is gaining acclaim both in Russia and around the world. Founded in 1994 as the Virtuosi of Yakutia, the ensemble is known for its energy, unique arrangements and high level of virtuosity. The group typically performs standing, without conductor.

The Ensemble has won numerous international awards, including an international festival in St. Petersburg, Russia, “Music Week of Tours” in France, Grand Prix in Cremona, Italy, a Grand Prix in Hungary, and many others. They often tour around the Russian Federation, performing before capacity audiences in major cities. Their 20-concert American debut in 2012 was followed by a well-received tour of South America including Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador and Colombia.

The Siberian Virtuosi make frequent radio and TV appearances across the Federation. Their designation as the official state ensemble reflects their cultural and artistic achievements in Russia and abroad, and success in representing the performing arts of their home state and the larger region of Siberia.

The capital of the Russia Republic of Sakha (also known as Yakutia) is the city of Yakutsk, population 300,000. The city experiences the coldest winters of any major city in the world, with actual January temperatures seldom rising above 25-below, Fahrenheit. Yakutsk is located in the vast expanse of far east-central Siberia, much closer to Alaska and the Bering Sea (still 1,800 miles to the east) than to Moscow (4,600 miles west).
