Vladislav Lavrik - Press

Thüringer Allgemeine

 “…Vladislav Lavrik and the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra succeeded from making the gloomy, painful and at the same time absurd in Prokofiev’s 6th symphony. Lyrical and bizarre intertwined and immediately stood in contrast to each other. Apparently desired gestures of socialist realism appeared alienated, angular and wild. Lavrik managed to have the unusual sound contrasts and the blatant topics and rhythms in the Largo, it was as impressive as the design of the final set, in which everything was soaked up by melancholy, skepticism and susceptive bizarre. Bravo for a masterpiece of the orchestra and his guest conductor!”

 Musical life

 “All this multi -layer of the texture subtly and carefully revealed Vladislav Lavrik. The most powerful dramatic climaxes in the spirit of the latest Symphones of Tchaikovsky, enthusiastic passion in the duet of Zemfira (Ksenia Muslanova) and the young Tsygan (Maxim Dorofeev), burning the jealousy of Alekho (Mikhail Atamanovich) - all this was not only expressively in the way, but also “conveyed” by means of orchestral colors. That evening, Vladislav Lavrik showed himself a serious player in the opera genre, and it is obvious that he can be in demand in full-fledged theatrical stories.”

 San Francisco Classical Voices

 “…Lavrik displayed the kind of innate musicality that is beyond teaching.”
