Tatiana Samouil - jury 2012 (Web)
Russian Federation
Tatiana Samouil is a Russian violinist with roots in the rich Russian tradition. Born into a musical St. Petersburg family, Tatiana took up the violin at the age of six. Just three years later, she made her solo debut with the Moldavian National Symphony Orchestra. Tatiana then entered the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory to study with Sergey Fatkulin and Maya Glezarova. She continued to study at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels under Igor Oistrakh, completing her studies with José Luis García at Madrid's Queen Sofía College of Music. At the International Tchaikovsky Competition she won 3rd Prize in 2002. She has also won 1st Prize at the Prix Henry Vieuxtemps and Tenuto Competitions, and is a laureate of the Michael Hill and Jean Sibelius competitions.

As a soloist, Tatiana Samouil has appeared with orchestras from all over the world, from the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra to the Toulouse Chamber Orchestra, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa. Her performances have had a special emphasis on her native Russia, where she has appeared with the Russian National Orchestra and the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra. In her resident Belgium she has performed extensively with the country's leading orchestras, such as the National Orchestra of Belgium and the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra.

As an active chamber musician, she regularly works with such artists as Gérard Caussé, Augustin Dumay, Frans Helmerson, Katia and Marielle Labèque, and Sonia Wieder-Atherton, in addition to the recently founded Malibran String Quartet. These numerous collaborations have taken her to festivals around the world, including the Menton Festival in France and the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele in Germany.

Tatiana Samouil is also on the ascent as a recording artist. Her 2006 debut album of the complete Prokofiev violin sonatas with pianist Plamena Mangova received excellent reviews, including 5 stars from France's Diapason. In 2009 she was involved in the first ever collaboration between an Argentinian orchestra and Sony, recording Luis Gianneo's Aymara violin concerto with conductor Luis Gorelik and the Salta Symphony Orchestra.

She plays a 1714 Stradivarius, once owned by the legendary Fritz Kreisler. Since 2010, she is playing as well on a beautiful modern violin, build especially for her by Christian Bayon.
