Concertizing regularly in recitals and concertos throughout Europe and Russia, Ksenia Milyavskaya has been acclaimed as an enormously accomplished violinist “who transforms on the stage into a bright, charismatic and virtuoso soloist” (D.Shapovalov), “that considers her well-developed and fast technique not as a goal but as a tool that allows her to convey the composer’s ideas and thoughts to the public” (A.Farulli).
Ksenia is a true representative of the great Russian school of violin. She was born in Volgograd in 1989, and at the age of 4 began her musical path. A year later, on the advice of teachers of the local music school, her family moved to St. Petersburg, where Ksenia was immediately accepted to the class of the professor S.M. Shalman at the Special Music School in St. Petersburg’s Conservatory for gifted children.
From early childhood Ksenia was enjoying busy concert activity. When she was only 8, she made her debut in the Mirrors Hall of the Beloselsky-Belozersky’s Palace as a soloist with the St. Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra. This was the beginning of a brilliant career, that has brought her world-wide success. “She captivates the audience not only with her charisma and amazing virtuosity but also with extraordinary artistic and creative maturity” – “Kultura” Magazine, S.Petersburg.
