Sergei Stadler, one of Russia's major virtuoso violinists, will give two concerts with the Jerusalem Festival Orchestra in the framework of the Music Gems Festival. The program features pieces by J.S. Bach - Brandenburg concerts No. 4 and No. 5, concerts for violin and orchestra, as well as the suite for flute and orchestra. Stadler (b. 1962 in Petersburg) studied violin with the legendary David Oistrakh and Leonid Kogan and won his first international contest by the age of 14. He later won the Grand Prix of Jacques Thibaud in Paris at the age of 18 as well as the first prize in the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1982. Today, he appears as a soloist with major orchestras throughout the world, and also conducts opera. He was recently appointed the rector of the St. Petersburg Conservatoire. Speaking over the phone from his office, he said that he was eager to invest a lot of effort to improve the quality of education at that institution, but he did not want to go into details. "I do not like to talk about myself and my plans; I prefer to do and not to talk," he added. The concerts take place at the Bell Cave in Beit Guvrin on May 8 at 6 p.m. and at St. John Church in Haifa at noon the next day. Flutists Eyal Ein Habar and Hagar Shahal, as well as harpsichord player Alexander Rosenblat, participate. For details and reservations: (02) 535-6954.
