Igor Malinovsky received his ﬁrst violin lessons, as a six-year-old, from Vladimir Milstein in Yekaterinburg. From 1992 to 1997 he studied with Dora Schwarzberg and Gerhard Schulz at Vienna’s University of Music and Performing Arts. In 1998 he pursued further studies with Zakhar Bron at the Cologne and Zurich Music Conservatories. At the age of 24, he was already ﬁrst concertmaster of the Bavarian State Orchestra, where, until 2005, he worked under the baton of General Music Director Zubin Mehta.
In 2005, he accepted the position of ﬁrst concertmaster with the Komische Oper Berlin and also became ﬁrst concertmaster with the Orquesta de la Comunidad Valenciana, a position he held until 2010. Igor Malinovsky has been a prizewinner at eight international competitions, among them the First Inter national "Madeira Music Festival" Violin Competition, the International Demidov Competition, the Grand Prix at the Diaghilev Competition and the International Pablo Saraste Competition.
Igor Malinovsky has not only pursued a career as an orchestral instrumentalist and soloist, but can also look back on an active career as a teacher. He has been a professor at the Carl Maria von Weber Conservatory in Dresden since 2009, and also taught as a visiting professor at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona. As founder of the Dresdner Residenz Konzerte, he initiated the successful Gala Concerts series in the Marble Hall of Dresden’s Zwinger Palace in April 2013.
