Romanian-born violinist Remus Azoitei is hailed in the international press as “a subtle and sensitive violinist” - The Strad with a “sparkling technique” - The Washington Post. Based in London, he has performed in such internationally-recognised venues as Carnegie Hall in New York, Konzerthaus Berlin, Bozar in Bruxelles, Kennedy Centre in Washington DC, Salle Gaveau in Paris and Wigmore Hall in London, to name a few. His recordings of the entire repertoire for violin and piano by George Enescu are widely acknowledged to have set the new standard for this composer. He completed his studies at the Juilliard School in New York and Royal Academy of Music in London, under the renowned guidance of Itzhak Perlman, Dororthy DeLay and Maurice Hasson. Remus is also a violin professor at the Royal Academy of Music. Appointed in 2001, he was then the youngest violin professor in the history of the Academy. He is a regular juror in such prestigious international violin contests as the George Enescu, Louis Spohr or Marktneukirchen and travels around the world performing concerts and giving violin masterclasses.
The first 2 eliminatory rounds of the Enescu violin competition moved online, during 5-13 September. The semi-finals and the Final will happen 17-19 May live in Bucharest. Remus is part of a jury consisting of internationally celebrated violinists – see Diary for more details.
