Vladimir Ashkenazy

Born: 1937

Shared first prize in the 1962 Tchaikovsky Competition with John Ogdon and has made a prodigious number of discs for Decca.

A tribute by Christopher Nupen

It is rare to find, in the same artist, the very highest levels of musical talent living alongside the deepest genuine humility. None has that rare combination in higher degree than Vladimir Ashkenazy. What he has done for music in the past 50 years is well documented but there is something else of huge importance: Ashkenazy’s belief in the power of the audio-visual. As a result, we have made 27 film productions together with the intention of bringing new people to music while retaining the interest and respect of the cognoscenti.
