The most difficult trumpet concerto ever written?
Star trumpeter’s virtuosity defies belief

 “Sergei Nakariakov plays the trumpet the way the rest of us breathe – if we are lucky.” San Francisco Chronicle

“If there is a problem for Nakariakov‚ it comes in the form of finding repertoire worthy of his exceptional talent.” Gramophone

A prodigy dubbed “the Paganini of the trumpet” and “Caruso of the trumpet”, Sergei Nakariakov stunned the world with his Salzburg Festival debut at the age of 14 and has since been a regular guest at the most prestigious venues and festivals, working with top orchestras and conductors. Many of today’s leading composers, including Jörg Widmann, have written for him, and his award-winning discography also covers transcriptions of violin, piano, cello and horn masterpieces. Guest conductor Alexander Liebreich, Chief Conductor & Artistic Director of Polish National Radio Symphony, will also conduct the world premiere of Steve Hui’s new work that explores the relationship between music and ‘noise’.
