Viiuldaja Jevgeni Sviridov (1989) tunneb end kodus nii barokk- kui nüüdismuusikamaailmas, samuti ei eksisteeri tema jaoks žanripiire – Sviridov esineb nii solisti, kontsertmeistri kui kammermuusikuna.

Juba õpilasena Peterburi Konservatooriumis saabusid Sviridovi esimesed konkursivõidud Menuhini-konkursilt Cardiffis ning Paganini-konkursilt Genovas (2008). 2010 võitis ta esikoha Bachi-konkursil Leipzigis, mis innustas Sviridovit veelgi süvenema barokkmuusika esitamisse. Tulemuseks esikoht, publikupreemia ja plaadistamisleping 2017. aastal toimunu Brügge Musica Antiqua barokkviiulikonkursilt. Hetkel elab Sviridov Kölnis ning töötab ajaloo noorima kontsertmeisrina mainekas ansamblis Concerto Köln. Ta mängib hinnalisel Januarius Gagliano barokkviiulil, mille on tema kasutusse andnud Jumpstart Jr-fond Amsterdamis.

Sviridov esineb regulaarselt Euroopa mainekates saalides ning festivalidel ja tema muusikaliste kaasteeliste hulka kuuluvad näiteks metsosopran Vivica Genauz, kontratenor Andreas Scholl, viiuldaja-kontratenor Dmitri Sinkovski, plokkflöödimängijad Dorothee Oberlingen ja Erik Bosgraaf jpt.

Sviridovi enda loodud barokkansambel Ludus Instrumentalis nägi ilmavalgust 2014. aastal ning pälvis koheselt mitmeid mainekaid konkursivõite.


Leningradis sündinud Anna Dmitrieva (1987) on lõpetanud Peterburi konservatooriumi ning alates 2015. aastast õpib kammermuusikat ja barokkviiulit Kölni muusika- ja tantsukõrgkoolis professorite Anthony Spiri, Harald Schonewegi, Konrad Junghäneli ja Richard Gwilti käe all.

Anna Dmitrieva on võitnud mitmeid kammermuusika konkursse, mh Charles Henneni kammermuusikakonkursi (2011), Moskva rahvusvaheline konkursi (2011), Citta di Pesaro (2014), Kölni IV Interner Wettberwerbi (2016) jt. Barokkansambli Ludus Instrumentalis liikmena võitis ta esimese preemia Berliini Bachi konkursil (2015) ning esimese preemia ja publikupreemia Saarbrückenis toimunud konkursil Förderpreis Alte Musik (2016) ning Bad Liebenwerdas toimunud Gebrüder Graun Wettbewerbil (2016). Barokkviiuli solistina jõudis ta septembris 2016 rahvusvahelise barokkmuusika konkursi Concours Corneille poolfinaali.

Anna Dmitrieva on osalenud paljudel festivalidel: Kissinger Sommer (Bad Kissingenis Saksamaal), Grazi Internationale Woche, Peterburi rahvusvaheline vanamuusikafestival, Fundación Monteleón de Música de Cámara (Leon, Hispaania), Herne Vanamuusikapäevad Saksamaal, Kölni Fest für alte Musik, Saarbrückeni vanamuusikafestival TAMIS jne.

2017. aastal esines Dmitrieva koos ansambliga Ludus Instrumentalis Bachfestil Leipzigis, Haut Jurà vanamuusikafestivalil ja Corneille’ kabelis Rouenis. Oma klaveritrioga Ludus on Dmitrieva mänginud Amsterdami Concertgebouw’s ja 2017. aastal osana kontserdiseerias New Masters on tour Slovakkia Filharmoonias Bratislavas, samuti kontserdil Lääne-Saksa ringhäälingule (WDR) Odhenthalis.
