Alexey Bruni



Alexei Bruni was born in Tambov, Russia in 1954 and began to play the violin at the age of six. He is a 1984 graduate of the prestigious Moscow State Conservatory, where he earned a doctorate degree and presently serves as professor of violin.

He is a past winner of both the Paganini and Thibaud international violin competitions. With a repertoire that includes more than thirty five concerti, Bruni performs throughout the world in recital and as a soloist with many leading orchestras.

Bruni served as concertmaster of the USSR State Symphony under Yevgeny Svetlanov. In 1990, he became the founding concertmaster of the Russian National Orchestra, a position he continues to hold. He has led the RNO and been featured as soloist in a series of highly acclaimed international tours and recordings.

Bruni has been designated an “Honored Artist of Russia” — a rare distinction awarded by his country for significant artistic contributions. A prolific poet, he has published a collection of verses and poems.
