Maxim Vengerov, the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra’s artist-in-residence for the 2018–2019 season, is considered to be one of the greatest living musicians.
Born in Novosibirsk, Siberia, in 1974 to two musicians, Maxim Vengerov began learning to play the violin at the age of four. A year later, he started studying with Galina Turchaninova and then with Zakhar Bron, who he subsequently followed as the teacher embarked on his various residences. He won first prize in the Wieniawski Competition at the age of ten, and the Carl Flesch Competition at fifteen.
During his already rich career, Maxim Vengerov has performed in some of the world’s greatest auditoriums, with the top conductors and the best orchestras.
