Sergei trofanov (c a)

  2. 2. Born in Moldova (ex-USSR), September 9th 1960, I grew up in a village borderingthe tzigane (gypsy) quarters. My father, a musician and a professional dancer,introduced me to a number of instruments such as the accordion, the balalaikaand the pan-flute. Around the age of 5, while attending to a village celebrationwith my father, I was attracted and charmed by the sound of a violin played by avery amusing Gypsy. The gypsy played with such energy, such a passion, I wasoverwhelmed!The violinist also happened to be a close neighbor. I frequently visited him andjust like any other child in the house, I learned to play the violin through oraltraditions. The gypsy maestro quickly became my teacher and left forever animpression that still can be heard today in my way of playing. With time, Idiscovered the immense possibilities of this instrument. I knew I could expresswith my violin, any emotions I felt.A few years later I pursue my passion by enrolling in music school and taking upclassical music studies. Alongside my close circle of musicians, at ten years old, Igive my first performances at local celebrations, marriages and private parties.This considerable training coupled with the remarkable skills I had developed asa performer, paved the way to the Conservatory of Kishinev, capital city ofMoldova. click
  3. 3. Later, at 22, the compulsory military service of my country would lead me to joinone of the Red Armys orchestras as an experienced violinist. Later at 24, I passedwith flying colors audition, and become a violinist in the National PhilharmonicOrchestra of Moldova "Jok" in which, from time to time, I am asked to performas solo violin.My career soars soon after. On many occasions, I am invited to join variousorchestras that are called upon to perform at national celebrations and majorevents. At times, I play with internationally renowned musicians. At this point ofmy artistic career, I make many television and radio appearances, as well as aseries of musical recordings and video productions. Before coming to Canada, Itoured extensively, stopping over in places such as England, Italy, Czech-Republic,Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Ex-Yugoslavia, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey,Cuba, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Madagascar, and Mauritius. Since my arrival inMontreal in 1991, I have been enjoying an international career, constantlyperforming in many Canadian and American cities such as Montreal, Quebec,Toronto, Winnipeg, New York, Chicago and many others. Overseas, I went ontour in France and in Japan, (4 years in a row). click
  4. 4. Quickly after my arrival, I was noticed by someone from the television industryand appeared as a guess star on CBC Television, (our National coast to coasttelevision network). Many television appearances followed this first one and mypopularity grew quickly. In October1999, my carrier kicks off with a recordingentitled Gypsy Passion, followed one year later by a second recording, GypsyPassion II: Romance. More recently, during the spring of 2003, I producedunder my own label, Scala Disc, my third album entitled Sergeï Trofanov andhis Ensemble, all in a Gypsy fashion!All the repertoire I played over the years must come together. Because of myroots and of the traditional oral teaching I received, because of these numeroustrips all over the world and the many influences from all the different rhythms,I play today with the greatest pleasure, always in a gypsy fashion. click
