Aylen Pritchin

Aylen Pritchin is one of the most interesting and versatile Russian violinists of his generation. As Bruno Monsaingeon said the young artist is “obviously gifted with something special to say and with an outstanding musical culture”.

The engagements of 2017-2018 include many performances as a soloist with orchestra as well as a chamber musician. Among the events of the season there are performances of Prokofiev’s 1st violin concerto with Teodor Currentzis in Moscow (Russia) and Schubert’s String quintet with David Geringas in Rellingen (Germany). Also Aylen Pritchin appears as a guest-soloist with Bruch‘s G minor concerto in Durango (Mexico) and makes his debut with the Russian National Philharmonic Orchestra in Moscow and Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra in St.Petersburg (Russia).
In the season 2018-2019 Aylen Pritchin meets again the Svetlanov Symphony Orchestra with Korngold’s Violin concerto in Moscow and comes back as a guest soloist to Irkutsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Tomsk and St.Petersburg. As a soloist he is also engaged to make his debut with Transilvania Philharmonic Orchestra in Cluj (Romania) and Cannes Symphony Orchestra in France. In April 2019 Aylen Pritchin is going to make his recital debut in Vancouver (Canada) together with his duo partner Lukas Geniusas.
Other orchestras Aylen Pritchin has played with during last years are MusicAeterna Orchestra, Lille National Orchestra, Tatarstan National Orchestra, I Pomeriggi Orchestra, Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, St.Petersburg Academic Symphony Orchestra. Among the conductors he has performed with there are Yuri Simonov, Alexander Sladkovsky, Maxim Emelyanychev.
Born in St.Petersburg Aylen Pritchin has studied there with Elena Zaitseva and later with Eduard Grach in the Tchaikovsky Moscow conservatory. In 2014 he was awarded as the First Prize winner of the 2014 Long-Thibaud Competition. In previous years Aylen Pritchin became a prize winner of numerous contests such as Wieniawski and Kreisler competitions among others.
In December 2017 the Russian label “Melodiya” has published the third album of Aylen Pritchin with Prokofiev´s works for violin and piano recorded together with Yury Favorin. Other two CDs include Russian music for violin (Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Desyatnikov) and works for piano trio recorded together with Lukas Geniusas and Alexander Buzlov.
As result of his great interest for the less known music Aylen Pritchin’s large repertoire includes such works like violin concertos by Schnittke and Martinu or violin sonatas by Antheil and Feinberg. In 2017 the musician took part in world premieres of works by Klaus Lang, Arman Gushchyan and Sergey Akhunov.
Beside concert performances Aylen Pritchin is regularly invited to give masterclasses in Nagold Summer Music Academy (Germany) and Martina Franca (Italy).
