Leonidas Kavakos has established himself as a violinist of rare quality, an artist who not so much plays music as inhabits it. Renowned for his keen intelligence, probing musical imagination, and striking range of sound, Kavakos has forged strong bonds with the world's major orchestras and conductors, including Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Valery Gergiev and the London Symphony Orchestra, and Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic. "Stunning...he might be the most deeply satisfying violinist performing today" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
