A renaissance man and a magnetic creative force, Dmitry Sitkovetsky has made a considerable impact on every aspect of musical life and has been successful as a performer, creator and facilitator for over four decades. His career as a violinist is documented in numerous recordings both of the great concertos and of works from the chamber repertoire. He is also a teacher, conductor and musical director, the artistic director of festivals and the author of more than 50 arrangements of works by Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Bartók, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Stravinsky and Schnittke, among others. Following his very successful Bach concert last year, he returns to the Ljubljana Festival this year with the same chamber ensemble and a programme of works by the great Russian Romantic Tchaikovsky and Ernő Dohnányi, a Hungarian master from the first half of the 20th century.
