Vladimir Spivakov, violin & Denis Matsuev, piano Grand recital

The Auditorium of the Fondation Louis Vuitton will welcome two distinguished artists, Vladimir Spivakov and Denis Matsuev, for this exceptional concert. Since his triumph in 1998 at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Denis Matsuev, now 39 years old, is one of the world's elite pianists. He travels the world under the direction of the most prestigious orchestra conductors, including Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Paavo Jarvi, Lorin Maazel and Vladimir Spivakov, just to name a few.

Vladimir Spivakov is recognised as one of the greatest violinists and conductors of our time, and has served as the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the National Philharmonic of Russia since 2003. As a violinist, he has performed with the world's most prominent conductors: Yuri Temirkanov, Leonard Bernstein, Claudio Abbado, Seiji Ozawa and Ricardo Chailly. His distinguished, multifaceted career has been marked by his ongoing commitment to humanitarian and educational causes.
