Leonid Gorokhov

In 1991 Leonid appeared as a soloist with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic conducted by Lord Menuhin, who invited him to teach at the UK Yehudi Menuhin School. Concerto opportunities with leading orchestras followed – with repertoire ranging from Haydn and Schumann to Walton and Lutoslawsky.

“I was bowled over when I first heard Leonid Gorokhov in a concert a few months ago. With a sound reminiscent of the legendary Emanuel Feuermann, Gorokhov is one of those rare artists who combines a natural communicative skill with awesome technical command.”
Jeremy Nicholas, Classic FM Magazine
