“A brilliant display of artistry on the violin”

– Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger


The French-Russian violinist Fedor Rudin is considered one of the most unique and versatile artists of today's generation. He has won numerous prestigious international Competitions, including the Premio Paganini in Genoa and the George Enescu competition in Bucharest. In 2019 he was awarded the Ivry Gitlis Prize in Paris. His latest CD album, Reflets, was nominated for the International Classical Music Awards.


In the 2020-2021 season, Fedor Rudin will make his debut with the Rundfunksinfonieorchester Berlin (conductor Vladimir Jurowski), the Norwegian Radio Orchestra (conductor Petr Popelka), the Baltic Neopolis Orchestra, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (conductor Kirill Karabits) and the German Chamber Orchestra in Berlin Philharmonic.


Earlier solo debuts have already taken the violinist to prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium in New York, Berlin Konzerthaus, Paris Philharmonie, Vienna Musikverein & Tonhalle Zurich, with many world-renowned orchestras including the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the National Orchestra of the Opéra Bastille, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestre de chambre de Paris, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra. He has played under the baton of conductors such as Lorenzo Viotti, Darrell Ang, Isaac Karabtchevsky, Christoph Poppen, Maxim Vengerov and Conrad van Alphen.


A devoted chamber musician, Fedor is a founding member of Fratres Trio, hailed as “a new generation of classical music” by the press for their unusual combination of violin, saxophone and piano. The ensemble is a prizewinner of the Illzach international chamber music competition in Mulhouse and has received the Supersonic Award by Pizzicato Magazine for their CD Couleurs d’un Rêve.

Further chamber music appearances have taken Fedor Rudin to festivals such as the Salzburg Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Pietrasanta in Concerto, Crans Montana Classics, ArtenetrA and others.





Passionate of operatic and symphonic repertoire as well, Fedor Rudin regularly works as a conductor. He has been serving as a guest conductor of the Georgian National Philharmonic during the 2012-13 concert season at the age of 20, and has had the chance to conduct orchestras such as the Petrobras Symphony Orchestra of Rio de Janeiro, the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, the Lviv Philarmonic, the Orchestra of the Szczecin Opera and the Orquestra Reino de Aragon.


As concertmaster of the Vienna State Opera Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic from 2019 to 2021, he was able to gain orchestral experience under the direction of conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Christian Thielemann, Zubin Mehta and Andris Nelsons. He is currently completing his conducting studies in the class of Prof. Simeon Pironkoff at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.


Born in Moscow in 1992 and raised in Paris, Fedor’s grandfather was the famous Russian avant-garde composer Edison Denisov. A graduate of Zakhar Bron at the Cologne High School of Music and Pierre Amoyal at the Mozarteum University of Salzburg, he is currently enrolled in a postgraduate program at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in the class of Boris Kuschnir.


Fedor plays the “ex-Benecke” violin by Antonio Stradivari, made in Cremona in 1694, generously loaned to him by the Austrian National Bank.
