Moscow-born French violinist Vadim Tchijik, 31, returns to Israel with his Baron Trio for a series of concerts throughout the country between May 15 and 27. A member of the first generation for whom the Iron Curtain was nonexistent, Tchijik moved to France at the age of 17. "I soon discovered that the very attitude to the classical music in the West is different," he notes. "Unlike Russia, with its strict rules of schooling, where you are programmed to be the best professional possible, here I've met amateur musicians who played very well just for the pleasure of it, while not-so-fine professional musicians play for a living." Tchijik has won many prestigious contests, such as Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and the Paganini Competition in Genoa. He performs with symphony orchestras and in recital programs all over the world, but emphasizes that he especially cherishes chamber music is especially: "This is a more intimate genre. It is about sharing your ideas with your fellow musicians, about creating music together with equal partners. It is like a conversation - quite different from playing with a powerful orchestra." The trio - Vadim Tchijik, pianist David Bismuth and cellist Evgeny Sakushev comes to Israel through the support of the French Embassy - and will perform pieces by Sibelius, Ravel, Chausson and Beethoven. They'll appear this Tuesday evening as part of the Felicja Blumental Festival at the Tel Aviv Museum at 6:30; at the Eilat Conservatory on Wednesday; at the Felicja Blumental Music Center in Tel Aviv on May 20; at the French Culture Centre in Haifa on May 21; in Shfaram on May 23; and at the Anna Ticho House in Jerusalem on the morning of May 25. They'll also play the capital on May 27 at the Mormon University, where they'll be joined by pianist Yaron Kohlberg.
