Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider

Violin

Biography

A virtuoso violinist, Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider maintains his reputation as one of the world’s leading exponents of the instrument with a busy calendar of concerto and recital engagements. The 2023–24 season marks his fourth as music director of the Orchestre National de Lyon, a partnership that has been extended until 2026–27. In addition to the New York Philharmonic, his guest appearances as a violinist include the Danish National Symphony, The Cleveland, Israel Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony orchestras, as well as the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, where he combines his roles as performer and conductor. He also returns to London’s Wigmore Hall with pianist and longtime collaborator Saleem Ashkar.

Szeps-Znaider’s extensive discography comprises much of the violin’s core repertoire, including the complete Mozart violin concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra, which he directed from the violin; Nielsen’s concerto with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic; Elgar’s Violin Concerto with Colin Davis and the Dresden Staatskapelle; award-winning recordings of the Brahms and Korngold concertos with Valery Gergiev and the Vienna Philharmonic; the Beethoven and Mendelssohn concertos with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra; Prokofiev Concerto No. 2 and the Glazunov concerto with Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra; the Mendelssohn concerto with Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, on DVD; and the complete works of Brahms for violin and piano with Yefim Bronfman.

Passionate about supporting the next generation of musical talent, Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider is president of the Nielsen Competition. He plays the “Kreisler” Guarnerius “del Gesu” 1741 on extended loan to him by The Royal Danish Theatre through the generosity of the VELUX Foundations, the Villum Fonden, and the Knud Højgaard Foundation.
