Having given his debut performance with Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in 2017, the award-winning Armenian violinist Sergey Khachatryan returns to Italy for his debut with Filarmonica della Scala on Monday 15 April 2019.
“Beyond technique in spades, he wielded a concentrated, forceful tone and exceptional degrees of clarity and tenderness at soft and high extremes.”

The youngest ever winner of the Sibelius Competition will perform Max Bruch’s famous First Violin Concerto under the baton of the renowned Maestro Myung-Whun Chung, who will then conduct Mahler’s Titan Symphony in the second half of the concert.
