ON THIS DAY | Today is VC Young Artist Yury Revich’s 29th Birthday!

631
Yury Revich Birthday

Today is Russian-born violin virtuoso, VC Young Artist Yury Revich’s 29th birthday!

A protégé of Alexander Revich, Galina Turchaninova, Victor Pikayzen and Pavel Vernikov, Yury is a former prize winner at the Virtuosi of the 21st Century – and the David Oistrakh and Kloster-Schontal International Violin Competitions.

His debuts include a Carnegie Hall solo recital debut with celebrated Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov.

Things you didn’t know about Yury:

  • He is colorblind and sometimes mixes up the A and D strings when he sets up his violin
  • He once arrived at a concert in Italy, but it was the wrong city! There were two towns which have the same name
  • He once improvised on stage as an encore but announced it as the world premiere of a piece by a non-existing composer. It was a big success!
