With his thrilling virtuosity and inspiring musicianship, Attilla Sautov has given the violin a new prominence in musical life. Attilla is a musical dynamo, with the violin that drives him. Or does he drive it like other people drive a Ferrari? If you have become aware of Attilla's powerful playing part as soloist or in an ensemble, imagine what it will be like to experience him in a solo recital for close to two hours. It will be a tour de force, and not only for the performer.
Attilla started playing the Violin at the age of 4 in Tashkent, and his enormous talent was enhanced in master classes with some of the world’s best violin players. In 2000 he moved to Germany where he worked as concert master in several leading Chamber Orchestras. With them he did performances in the most prestigious venues all over the world like the Sydney Opera House, the Berlin Concert Hall, the Ottawa National Art Centre and the Hong Kong Art Centre. He has become known for his extrovert and flamboyant stage presence and his tremendous command of the violin. One of his favourite composers is Paganini and playing his very difficult parts always turns out to be a jaw dropping experience sending thrills and plucking pizzicatos down your spine.
You may ask: what makes him come to a place like beautiful small town of Maleny and Buderim in between playing at Berlin Concert Hall in Germany or the Sydney Opera House or in Hong Kong Art Centre?
Well, Attilla is a good communicator, has stage presence and likes the interaction with the audience. Playing at large city venues to a huge audience may be more prestigious and lucrative, but interaction is difficult when you are staring in a semi dark auditorium at the collective faces of 1000 or more people across the stage. And it probably is a good thing for any performing artist to connect with the grass roots in regional centres and country towns. Attilla encouraged a deeper love and appreciation for the instrument by his heart-warming interpretations of the classics.
His repertoire includes much of the brilliant stuff that was written for virtuosos of the last 250 years or more; Paganini (who wrote to show off himself), Bach, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Bruch, Stravinsky, etc; they all knew the violin and what it is capable of in the right hands. But an occasion like this, you don’t go to hear Monti’s Czardas, you go to hear Attilla play.
