New York, NY, October 14, 2014 (McKenzieNewsService.com) - French publishing house Buchet-Chastel has released the much-anticipated Volume Two of Jean-Michel Molkhou's acclaimed 2011 survey, "Great Violinists of the Twentieth Century."  The 480 page sequel, with a foreword by Gidon Kremer, is devoted to the world's top thirty virtuoso violinists born during the second half of the century, between 1948 and 1985, and includes Chicago area resident Vadim Gluzman.
 
The Israeli violinist is Artistic Director of Chicago's North Shore Chamber Music Festival, which he founded five years ago with Angela Yoffe, his wife and recital partner.
 
Each of the thirty portraits in this volume traces the violinist's life and career, describes their unique contribution to the art, their key repertoire, and includes important selections from their discography on an accompanying CD.

Vadim Gluzman, Joshua Bell, Pinchas Zukerman, Hilary Hahn, Anne Sophie Mutter, Gil Shaham, Sarah Chang, Midori, and Vadim Repin. 
 
The author, Jean-Michel Molkhou, has been a music critic for Diapason magazine for the past twenty-five years, contributes regularly to the British journal The Strad and is co-author of The Violin: the Multimedia Encyclopedia. He has produced several series of programs for France Musique and for many years has participated in the “Tribune des critiques de disques”, a France Musique program that compares interpretations from the classical repertoire. Molkhou is one of the leading specialists in the field of the violin and divides his time between his work as a surgeon and his passion for music. 
 
Vadim Gluzman’s chapter, entitled "In the footsteps of the great old masters" ("Sur les traces des grands anciens"), highlights Mr. Gluzman's penchant for bringing the glorious violinistic tradition of the 19th and 20th centuries back to life. Gluzman's widely ranging repertoire embraces contemporary music with the same passion as the romantic masterpieces and his performances are heard around the world through live broadcasts and a striking catalogue of award-winning recordings exclusively for the BIS label. 
 
Gluzman appears regularly with major orchestras such as the Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, London Symphony, BBC Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Munich Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony. He works closely with leading conductors like Tugan Sokhiev, Andrew Litton, Neeme and Paavo Järvi, Michael Tilson Thomas, Itzhak Perlman, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Hannu Lintu and Peter Oundjian. 
 
Gluzman's 2014-15 season marks his first appearances with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the Netherlands Philharmonic and the Orchestre National de Belgique.
 
Born in the former Soviet Union in 1973, Gluzman spent most of his childhood in Riga, Latvia, and was an early student of violinist Zakhar Bron in Russia. In 1990 he moved to Israel where he was mentored by Issac Stern and later to the United States where he worked with Dorothy DeLay and Arkady Fomin. Today, he divides his residency between Chicago and Tel Aviv.
 
Gluzman plays the extraordinary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivari, on extended loan to him through the generosity of the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
