Among contemporary classical musicians, Russian born violinist Roman Mints is one of the most outstanding. He studied and lived in London, and became famous after playing at South Bank Centre, Wigmore Hall, Gaveau, Berlin Philharmony, and several festivals. Mints never limited himself to classics only, he collaborated with avantgarde and free jazz musicians, and contemporary composers. In 1998 Roman Mints and oboist Dmitry Bulgakov founded the Homecoming Chamber Music Festival in Moscow, which has gained widespread recognition and a substantial following in Russia.

This time, Roman’s partner on stage is Varvara Myagkova, whose way to the public recognition can be regarded as unique. Until recently, her name had been known in small professional circles only, despite the fact that she had toured whole Russia. But she became a sort of household name after some famous musicians stunned by her talent had shared her concert videos at social networks. In 2019, she was invited to several big festivals in Russia and abroad; pianist Boris Berezovsky invited her to perform at “Summer Nights in Yelabuga”, one of the most significant festivals in Russia.
