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

Sergei Nakariakov, the russian born israeli trumpet player, has established himself as one of the most sought-after trumpet players on the international stage. Gifted with a rare combination of stunning virtuosity, a suave and velvet-toned sound and a deep sensitivity he was named “The Paganini of the trumpet” and “Caruso of the trumpet”. Nakariakov has single-handedly brought the flugelhorn to prominence on the concert platform. He has developed long-standing relationships with many of the world’s most respected leading orchestras, conductors and musicians.

Nakariakov’s repertoire covers not only the entire range of original literature for trumpet, but is continually expanding into broader territories, comprising many fascinating transcriptions and commissions by Peter Ruzicka, Uri Brener, Enjott Schneider, Fazil Say and Jörg Widmann, while he searches for ever new means of musical expression.

Nakariakov’s season is marked by a series of high-profile concerts. In addition to the world premiere of Fazil Say’s concerto for two trumpets, Nakariakov will present his artistic diversity with concerts in Europe, South Korea, Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil and Japan.

The program will include the trumpet concerto by Fazil Say as well as Jörg Widmann’s concerto “ad absurdum” and Haydn C-Major Cello concerto arr. for fluegelhorn as well as Rococo Variations by P.I. Tchaikovsky in the arrangement for flugelhorn.
