Maxim Fedotov, son of conductor Viktor Fedotov, studied under Polyarkin-trained Boris Sergeyev at the Leningrad Special Music School before attending the Moscow Conservatory. His pianist wife Galina Petrova also appears here in the Shostakovich and Beethoven selections.

A People’s Artist of Russia and soloist of the Moscow State Academic Philharmonic Society, Fedotov has a repertoire of some fifty concertos which he has performed throughout Russia, Western Europe and Japan. He has received acclaim as a ‘Russian Paganini’ and did in fact give a famous recital using two of Paganini’s instruments—a Guarneri and a Vuillaume—in St Petersburg in 2003.

Fedotov, who also conducts, has served as a juror for several international violin competitions and given masterclasses in Germany, Spain, Japan, Croatia, Australia and elsewhere.

His recordings reveal a warm and responsive post-Romantic tone, characterised by a certain suppleness within what is basically a recognisably conventional modern sound. His repertory includes a notable specialism in the music of Max Bruch, to which his tone and artistic bearing is well suited.
