Outstanding international violinist Maxim Vengerov and his daughters Liza and Pauline, accompanied by their teachers Velitchka Yotcheva and Victoria Power, charmed their audience with their talent and great simplicity at a private concert at CREM on June 20.

The violin of Maxim accompanied the piano and cello of his daughters aged 9 and 11, who clearly demonstrated they have in their veins the same musical DNA as their father.

They attacked without fear scores by Tchaikovsky, Debussy and Haydn and ended with a frenzied Polka pizzicato by Strauss played by all three musicians.

“To thank this immense international artist, a resident of the Principality who had already given a concert for CREM Members at the Princess Grace Rose Garden in 2018, President Louisette Azzoaglio and the Board of Directors have appointed Maxim Vengerov as an Honorary Member of the Monaco Foreign Residents Club. A closing cocktail wrapped up the evening in a convivial atmosphere that the members present are not likely to forget.”

The Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra has described Mr Vengerov as one of the world’s finest musicians. “Universally hailed as one of the world’s finest musicians, and often referred to as the greatest living string player in the world today, Grammy award winner Maxim Vengerov also enjoys international acclaim as a conductor and is one of the most in-demand soloists.” In 1997 Mr Vengerov became the first classical musician to be appointed International Goodwill Ambassador by UNICEF.
