Easter Concert


Sergei Nakariakov, trumpet

Maria Meerovitch, piano


Works by Robert Schumann,

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky,

Alexander Scriabin and others

Sergei Nakariakov has been called the ‘Paganini of the trumpet’, and considering the virtuosity with which the young musician from Gorky masters his instrument, this comparison seems by no means exaggerated. It was his father who promoted the young trumpeter’s exceptional talent for music and taught him the techniques needed to become a successful virtuoso. First concerts in Russia were soon followed by invitations to appear at numerous international concert halls. Wherever he went, his audience was amazed by his virtuosity and musicality. He first performed at the Salzburg Festival at the beginning of the 1990s; since then, he has visited many of the world’s music capitals and has played at numerous festivals, and also together with Evgeni Kissin, Martha Argerich and Yuri Bashmet, for example. The composer Jörg Widmann dedicated his work Ad Absurdum to Nakariakov, which the trumpeter performed for the very first time in 2006 with the Münchner Kammerorchester, then led by Christoph Poppen. Nakariakov maintains a close and highly productive creative friendship with the jazz trumpeter Till Brönner that has already resulted in successful projects in the past.

Sergei Nakariakov will be accompanied by his musical partner of many years, Maria Meerovitch. Born in St Petersburg, she studied at the Conservatory there under Anatol Ugorski. In 1990, she won a scholarship from the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation and moved to Belgium. Immediately after her graduation with distinction, the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp engaged her as a tutor. She has won several first prizes in renowned international competitions for her concert performances, and has appeared in many of Europe’s music capitals.
