One of the brightest representatives of the Russian violin school, Sergei Dogadin is establishing a strong international career as soloist and chamber musician with his captivating performances.
Dogadin has won a number of the most prestigious violin competitions including the XVI Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow, where he was awarded first prize and the Gold Medal (2019). This accolade led to invitations from Valery Gergiev to perform with him and the Mariinsky Orchestra at the European summer festivals. In addition, he took part in the Tchaikovsky Competition Winners’ tour of Japan, combining concerto performances with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra conducted by Norichika Iimori, and chamber recitals.
An active and passionate chamber musician, Dogadin has appeared, amongst others at the 2021 Grafenegg Festival with Denis Kozhukhin, St Petersburg Philharmonic Hall with Evgeny Sinaisky and regularly performs with internationally renowned musicians such as Daniil Trifonov, Narek Hakhnazaryan, Denis Matsuev, David Geringas, Elisabeth Leonskaya, Alexander Knyazev, Maxim Rysanov and Alexei Ogrintchouk.
Dogadin is currently continuing his studies under Boris Kuschnir at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna, having previously studied with him in Graz. He has also studied at St Petersburg Conservatory with Vladimir Ovcharek, International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad with Maxim Vengerov, and Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne with Mihaela Martin. He plays a 1721 Domenico Montagnana violin on loan from the Rin Collection in Singapore and has had the opportunity to perform on various rare instruments including legendary Paganini’s "Sivori" violin by Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume and an Amati once owned by Johann Strauss.
