Igor Malinovsky received his ﬁrst violin lessons, as a six-year-old, from Vladimir Milstein in Yekaterinburg. His studies led him to work with Dora Schwarzberg, Gerald Schulz and Zakhar Bron at the music conservatories in Vienna, Cologne and Zurich. At the age of 24, he became the concertmaster of the Bavarian State Orchestra in Munich.
In 2005, he took up the same post at the Komische Oper Berlin as well as in the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana in Valencia. He has already worked with renowned conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Kirill Petrenko and Lorin Maazel. As a soloist, he toured throughout Europe, Asia and South America and performed at the Zagreb and Moscow philharmonic, the Gasteig in Munich, the Wiener Musikverein and the Konzerthaus in Vienna, among others.
Igor Malinovsky is the prizewinner of eight international competitions, including the International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition (Lublin, Poland), the Menuhin Competition (Folkstone, England), the International Fritz Kreisler Competition and the Pablo Sarasate International Violin Competition.
In 2009, Igor Malinovsky was appointed Professor for Violin at the Dresden University of Music Carl Maria von Weber and guest professor at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona. Last but not least, in April 2013, he founded the DRESDNER RESIDENZ ORCHESTER with young musicians from all over the world and has since been delighting audiences in the acoustically vibrant halls of the Dresdner Zwinger and on tour.
