Kirill Troussov press reviews, Michèle Fizane -  21/07/2010
Festival Radio France Montpellier

“…Troussov substituted for Dumay brilliantly in performing Music for Violin and Orchestra by Rudi Stephan.”

Radikal (Istanbul), Serhan Bali - 15/6/2010
International Istanbul Music Festival

It was such a pleasure for us to be witness of the concert of cellist Antonio Menesis, young violinist Kirill Troussov and pianist Gülsin Onay. Troussov, student of the legendary Zahkhar Bron, is an outstanding talent – the Maxim Vengerov of the future. During the Franck-sonata we experienced a complete violinist. Unique his performance during Tchaikovsky’s Trio-Concert: the dignity of his playing, the ability to express always the exact degree of emotions – not to forget the perfect technique of his left hand […] Unforgettable the dialogue between Menesis and Troussov during the 50 minutes of the Tchaikovsky–Concert. The Night of Chamber-Music on June 12 will be kept in memory as one of the most impressing nights of the whole festival.

As played by Kirill Troussov, the “Brodsky” enchanted Bartok

During the intermission people wondered what kind of violin emits such a passionate sound. Not any Stradivari, but the “Brodsky”, so called after Adolph Brodsky who performed the world premiere of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto in 1881. 130 years later in the concert hall “Großes Haus” in Münster Kyrill Troussov thrilled the audience with his creative genius, as he did last year when he substituted for Gidon Kremer in Paris. The performance of the 28-year-old Russian violinist was magnificent. Bartok’s violin concerto No. 1 was played with so much emotion it seemed it belonged to the romantic period, especially the last sensual movement. Finally and with superb verve he played Paganini’s legendary Caprice No. 24.

Highlights of Mozart

“Baden-Württemberg Makes Music“ met in the “Hildesheimer Malteserhalle”, where the audience enjoyed international artists who performed in a very special Mozart concert. Mozart wrote several pieces for violin, but very seldom are they interpreted so masterly. The 28-year-old violinist, Kirill Troussov, in perfect harmony with the “Philharmonische Orchester Freiburg”, excelled in playing the violin concert in A-major, KV 219. […] With his Stradivari “Brodsky” Troussov gave proof of his extraordinary talent by playing Paganini’s “Caprice No. 24” as an encore. “Caprice” in a-minor is one of the most famous, but also one of the most demanding compositions for violins, consisting of a theme, eleven variations and a brilliant finale. […] Thundering applause with hands and feet honoured the violinist’s genius, who was to give another concert at the Berlin Philharmonie on the following day., Victoria Okada – 19/4/2010
Beetwen Melody and Rhythm

Paris, Auditorium du Louvre: Kirill Troussov and Alexandra Troussova gave a recital with a Russian programme predominantly of the 20th century. The neoclassical suite by Schnittke is a collection of small pieces common in the 18th century […] A relaxing performance of good taste transported us into a fantasy garden of that time. The famous sonata by Prokofiev, which is also very classical in its structure, was performed with great dynamic force and a remarkable rhythmical precision […] Neo-classicism is both melodious and rhythmical at the same time, which the two musicians expressed elegantly. Interpreting Tchaikovsky they showed a wonderful contrast between the wistful melody of the "Meditation" and the "Valse-Scherzo"’s effervescent joy. At every moment, violon and piano were in perfect unison, brother and sister breathe the same musical air.

An obsessed violinist

Kirill Troussov…one of the most gifted violinists of his generation […]The carefree, impetuous adolescent has become an elegant, attractive master violinist. As such he presented himself in the Gasteig concert hall. Together with his sister Alexandra, pianist, he performed works by Brahms, Vitali, Ysaÿe and Franck. The programme requires vivacity, richness of tone and vision, especially with César Franck’s sonata in A major […]
Right from the beginning he played with an explosive, sometimes forced, but always captivating and powerful intensity. At once Troussov showed the required violinist presence for Brahms’ scherzo in c minor. He played Tomaso Vitali’s Chaconne in a consequently virtuoso manner […]Troussov set a calm tempo in Eugène Ysaÿe third solo sonata, dedicated to George Enescu, thus intelligently building up and vehemently increasing this “Ballade”. At last nobody can evade the sweeping, invigorating and intoxicating effect of Franck’s sonata […] Standing ovations, encores with Paganini-Auer and Bazzini., Peter Cossé – 8.12.2009
1st Schloss Elmau „Festivalissimo“

I listened to several soloists […] among them the 27-year-old Kirill Troussov, who showed his versatility and technical brilliance by performing Brahms (op. 100), Prokofiev (op. 94b) and Ravels’s Tzigane.
