Vladislav Lavrik

Vladislav Lavrik, one of the most talented musicians of his generation, is Russia’s finest trumpeter and a rising young conductor.  Recognized for achievements in both classical and jazz performance styles, he was appointed principal trumpet of the Russian National Orchestra at the age of 20, the youngest person to hold a principal chair in the history of the orchestra.  Since 2008 Lavrik has been a member of the trumpet faculty of the Moscow State Conservatory.  In 2011 he was elected to the board of the International Trumpet Guild, the first Russian to be given this recognition and responsibility.  In 2016 he received the Russian Presidential Prize for Young Artists, the country’s highest honor for young artists.                         

In 2010 Lavrik achieved his conducting debut with the Russian National Orchestra at Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow.  Since then he has led the RNO in its regular concert season and in festival concerts, including the 2014 program dedicated to Serge Kussevitsky.  Mikhail Pletnev, the RNO’s founding conductor, invited Lavrik to the podium for his 2012 return to the concert stage as solo pianist, and Lavrik again led the RNO with Pletnev as soloist in their 2015 concerts in South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan.  The 2013 Minnesota Beethoven Festival marked Lavrik’s American conducting debut, leading the RNO in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6.

In addition to his work with the RNO, Lavrik has guest-conducted other leading Russian orchestras, including the Symphony Orchestra “New Russia,” the State Symphony Orchestra, Moscow Chamber Orchestra “Musica Viva,” the Krasnoyarsk Academic Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of Urdmurtia, the State Symphony Orchestra of the Russian Ministry of Defense, and the State Wind Orchestra.  

Born to a family of musicians, Lavrik’s early training included both piano and trumpet.  After receiving his Master’s Degree in trumpet performance at Moscow State Conservatory, he completed the opera and symphonic conducting program at the Gnesin Academy of Music, where his major professor was Maestro Vladimir Fedoseyev. Lavrik has also studied with Horia Andreescu, Teodor Currentzis, Mark Elder, Neeme and Paavo Jarvi, Vladimir Jurovsky, Alfredo Naseda, Vassily Petrenko, and Mark Singer.  In 2014 he was invited to assist Maestro Kent Nagano leading the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, preparing Saint-Saens’ Symphony No. 3.  On several occasions Lavrik has led the Gnesin Academy Opera Series in Tchaikovsky’s Evgeny Onegin

Lavrik is an organizer and leader of brass music festivals and ensembles, as well as a sought-after member of trumpet competition juries in the United States and Europe.  He is founder and artistic director the Russian National Orchestra Brass Quintet and of the International Brass Days Festival of the Moscow State Conservatory.   In recent Brass Days festivals Lavrik has premiered new arrangements by Evgeny Ratner of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, conducting a large brass and percussion ensemble in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory. 

As a conductor and trumpet soloist Lavrik is actively involved in music projects for children, including the RNO’s established series “Magic of Music.”  During 2011 and 2012 he visited orphanages and special schools in the United States and Russia with a program of music therapy for children with disabilities.  In 2013 he both conducted and performed in premiere performances of the children’s musical Hermitage Cats Save the Day by Chris Brubeck in Washington, DC, Tuscaloosa, Alabama and St. Petersburg, Russia.  His recording with the Russian National Orchestra of Alexander Rosenblatt’s Alice in Wonderland with narrator Alexander Oleshko was released in 2013.   In 2011 he released a solo album “Meditations” featuring music by Russian composers.

Reviews of Vladislav's Conducting

“Lavrik is outstanding at whatever he does. He always brilliantly plays solo parts in orchestral compositions, and here in this concert, he performed with success as a conductor.”

ALEF Online Magazine, 2010

 

...Performing

“Guest soloist for the evening was trumpeter Vladislav Lavrik who displayed accomplished musicianship and virtuosity in the Trumpet Concerto by Alexander Arutiunian. The showy cadenza written by the late Timofei Dokshizer was played with deceptive ease. Mr. Lavrik gave a sparkling sheen to his playing which kept the performance vivid.”

— John Bridges’ Masterworks Review, Asheville, NC (2008)

 

“The horn of Vlad Lavrik was pure, sonorous and soaring. George Gershwin [Rhapsody in Blue, arranged by Timofei Dokshitzer for trumpet] sounds much different in this variation but not a bit less thrilling.”

The Orange County Register (2002)

 

“On this evening, trumpet player Vladislav Lavrik shone.”

Los Angeles Times (2002)

 

“After a moment of shock, the audience embraced this decidedly Russian arrangement of the American classic ["Rhapsody in Blue" arranged by Timofei Dokshitzer for trumpet]. Lavrik's triumphant final notes drew a deserved ovation. At intermission, Napa Valley Symphony director Asher Raboy pronounced the rendition "great fun.”

Napa News (2002)

 

“Vladislav Lavrik, the trumpet soloist, navigated the opening glissando with great panache. This "young man with a horn" proved that he would do just fine in any big city. Lavrik has a gorgeous sound, with tasteful use of the wa-wa mute, and displayed the kind of innate musicality that is beyond teaching.”

What They’re Saying

"To present American and Russian musicians performing and teaching together at Festival Napa Valley...is precisely the kind of effort that sustains vital cultural links...at a critical time for both societies. [This] resonates with the public [and] is meaningful for the musician participants...Cultural diplomacy and music offer alternatives to contention and sustain important linkages between our societies for the long run...Now more than ever we need viable citizen-to-citizen points of contact and dialogue."

James F. Collins (Ambassador Ret.)

Senior Fellow, Russia and Eurasia Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
