Yevgeny Kutik

With a “dark-hued tone and razor-sharp technique” (The New York Times), Russian-American violinist Yevgeny Kutik has captivated audiences worldwide with an old-world sound that communicates a modern intellect. Praised for his technical precision and virtuosity, he is also lauded for his poetic and imaginative interpretations of both standard works and newly composed repertoire.


A native of Minsk, Belarus, Kutik began violin studies with his mother, Alla Zernitskaya, and immigrated to the US with his
family at the age of five. An advocate for the Jewish Federations of North America, the organization that assisted his family in
coming to the US, he regularly speaks and performs across the country to promote the assistance of refugees from around the
world. Kutik’s discography includes Words Fail (Marquis Classics 2016), Music from the Suitcase (Marquis Classics 2014), and
Sounds of Defiance (Marquis Classics 2012).

Yevgeny Kutik made his major orchestral debut in 2003 with Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops as the First Prize recipient of
the Boston Symphony Orchestra Young Artists Competition. In 2006, he was awarded the Salon de Virtuosi Grant as well as the
Tanglewood Music Center Jules Reiner Violin Prize. Committed to fostering creative relationships with living composers, Kutik
has performed premieres of works by Timo Andres, Michael Gandolfi, Ron Ford, Sheila Silver, and George Tsontakis, and has
also been involved in the performances of new and rarely played works by Kati Agócs, Joseph Schwantner, Nico Muhly, and
Donald Martino.


Kutik holds a bachelor’s degree from Boston University and a master’s degree from the New England Conservatory and
currently resides in Boston. Kutik’s violin was crafted in Italy in 1915 by Stefano Scarampella.
