Sergei Nakariakov

Russian-Israeli trumpet player Sergei Nakariakov has enjoyed a flashy career over the last 20 years as one of the most widely admired virtuosos of the trumpet and flugelhorn anywhere in the world. He was only 15 when he did his first recording and the triple album Warner/Teldec issued of him in 2012 perfectly showcases the prodigious range of his skills on both instruments, which have led many to label him ‘the Paganini’ or ‘the Caruso’ of the trumpet. Nakariakov plays instruments by maker Antoine Courtois, from Paris, including a flugelhorn named after him and built according to Nakariakov’s stipulations. Aside from the original repertory for those instruments, Nakariakov performs a large number of transcriptions and arrangements, either of his own doing or of his father’s, Mikhail, who has been a central personality in his musical career, but he has also sought to enlarge the repertory by commissioning works to composers like Peter Ruzicka or Jörg Widmann. Mr. Nakariakov appears frequently as a soloist with orchestras around the world, but he is a committed chamber musician as well and has enjoyed partnerships with the likes of Vadim Repin, Martha Argerich, Mischa Maisky, Dmitri Sitkovetsky, Julian Rachlin or Emmanuel Pahud. He also performs frequently with his pianist sister, Vera. Sergei Nakariakov currently lives in Paris.
