     Robert Zimansky

Robert Zimansky, violinist of American origin, is one of the most versatile violinists playing the instrument today. After early studies with John Ferrell and Sally Thomas he became a student of Ivan Galamian. He worked with him for nine years and was able to study the entire traditional repertoire during the great Russian pedagogue's "golden years" at the Juilliard School in New York. In 1972 Zimansky moved to Europe where he has lived ever since. After having occupied the concertmaster chair in several European orchestras, he was appointed Concertmaster of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in 1975. In 1980 he accepted the position of professor of the advanced violin class at the Geneva Conservatory. He has played as soloist with many of today's leading conductors such as Sawallisch, Blomstedt, Dutoit, Zinman, Stein, Herbig, Inbal, Segerstam and Jordan.

Besides the traditional repertoire, he specializes in the concertos of the first part of the 20th century, all of which he plays from memory. He became a member of the board of directors ot the Swiss Tonkunstlerverein in 1988. Robert Zimansky has made numerous recordings (see enclosed discography) and his CD of the complete Schumann sonatas __with Christoph Keller was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque de l'Academie Charles Cros in 1986.

Robert Zimansky has played in many of Europe's chamber music series with his trio partners, Michael Ponti and Jan Polasek. The trio has played in virtually every important center in Germany and recently performed the complete Beethoven trios in the Berlin Philharmonie. Their recording of the two Saint-Saens Trios has been praised by the international press.

Robert Zimansky recently started teaching at the Musikhochschule in Zurich.
