Biographie von Alina Pogostkina

Bekannt für ihre „herzergreifenden Auftritte“ (Hamburger Abendblatt), gastiert Alina Pogostkina – Gewinnerin des Internationalen Sibelius Wettbewerbs 2005 in Helsinki – bei den großen Orchestern weltweit und arbeitet mit Dirigenten wie Vladimir Ashkenazy, Gustavo Dudamel, David Zinman, Jonathan Nott, Paavo Järvi, Michael Sanderling, David Afkham, Robin Ticciati Thomas Hengelbrock und John Storgårds.

Höhepunkte dieser Saison sind Debüts mit dem Orchestra dell‘Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia und Mikko Franck, dem Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin mit Osmo Vänskä und dem Budapest Festival Orchestra unter der Leitung von Marin Alsop. Alina Pogostkina eröffnet die Konzertsaison des BBC Symphony Orchestras in Londons Barbican Centre mit Bergs Violinkonzert unter der Leitung von Sakari Oramo. Wiedereinladungen führen sie außerdem zum RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra mit Clemens Schuldt und dem Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra mit Karl-Heinz Steffens.

Höhepunkte der vergangenen Jahre waren Engagements mit dem Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Philhamonia Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, NHK und Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestras sowie mit dem Deutschen Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, SWR Symphonieorchester, Mahler Chamber Orchestra und dem hr-Sinfonieorchester. Sie feierte große Erfolge mit dem Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France und den St. Petersburger Philharmonikern.

Alina Pogostkina ist gern gesehener Gast bei Musikfestivals wie den Festivals in Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern und Bergen, den Salzburger Festspielen sowie dem Edinburgh International Festival, Grafenegg Festival, Istanbul Music Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival und dem Festival de Pâques in Aix-en-Provence.

Durch das Studium der Barockgeige bei Reinhard Goebel am Mozarteum Salzburg zeigt Alina Pogostkina eine beeindruckende Vielseitigkeit in barockem und klassischem Repertoire – sie spielt regelmäßig und mit großer Leidenschaft auf Darmsaiten – bis hin zu den Meisterwerken der Moderne. Eine Zusammenarbeit mit Reinhard Goebel schließt Konzerte mit Tapiola Sinfonietta, dem Helsinki Baroque Orchestra sowie dem WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln mit ein.

Als Kammermusikerin tritt Alina Pogostkina mit namhaften Partnern auf. Zu ihnen gehören Steven Isserlis, Yuri Bashmet, Gidon Kremer, Menahem Pressler, Christoph Eschenbach, Pekka Kuusisto, Maxim Rysanov, Jörg Widmann und Joshua Bell. Zahlreiche Rundfunk- und Fernsehproduktionen dokumentieren Alina Pogostkinas künstlerische Karriere. Hier zeigt sich auch ihre Leidenschaft für zeitgenössische Musik. So spielte sie zuletzt im Frühjahr 2012 das Gesamtwerk für Violine von Pēteris Vasks ein und erhielt dafür herausragende Kritiken.

Alina Pogostkina wurde in St. Petersburg geboren und wuchs in Deutschland auf. Zu Beginn erhielt Sie Unterricht bei ihrem Vater A. Pogostkin. Später studierte sie bei Antje Weithaas an der Hochschule für Musik „Hanns Eisler“ in Berlin. Sie spielt auf der „Sasserno“ von Antonio Stradivari von 1717, die ihr von der Nippon Music Foundation zur Verfügung gestellt wird.

Praised for her “deeply moving” performances (Hamburger Abendblatt), Alina Pogostkina, winner of the 2005 Sibelius Competition in Helsinki, performs at many of the world’s most renowned festivals and concert venues. She has collaborated with conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Gustavo Dudamel, David Zinman, Jonathan Nott, Paavo Järvi, Michael Sanderling, David Afkham, Robin Ticciati, Thomas Hengelbrock and John Storgårds.

Highlights of this season include debuts with Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Mikko Franck, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and Osmo Vänskä and Budapest Festival Orchestra with Marin Alsop. Alina Pogostkina will open the BBC Symphony Orchestra concerts season at the Barbican Centre performing Berg’s Violin Concerto under the baton of Sakari Oramo. She will return to RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra with Clemens Schuldt and the Royal Stockhom Philharmonic Orchestra with Karl-Heinz Steffens.

Recent concerts have included Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, the Hallé, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, NHK and Yomiuri Nippon symphony orchestras, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, SWR Symphonieorchester, Mahler Chamber Orchestra and hr-Sinfonieorchester. She celebrated major successes with Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Orchestre National de France and St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

Alina Pogostkina performs at festivals such as Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Bergen, Salzburger Festspiele, Edinburgh International Festival, Grafenegg Festival, Istanbul Music Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival and Easter Festival Aix-en-Provence.

Following studies of the baroque violin with Reinhard Goebel at Mozarteum Salzburg, Alina Pogostkina displays impressive versatility in diverse and wide-ranging repertoire from baroque and classical, often played on gut strings, to the modern masterworks. Collaborations with Reinhard Goebel include performances with the Tapiola Sinfonietta, Helsinki Baroque Orchestra and WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln.

An ardent chamber musician, she has worked with musicians such as Steven Isserlis, Yuri Bashmet, Gidon Kremer, Menahem Pressler, Christoph Eschenbach, Pekka Kuusisto, Maxim Rysanov, Jörg Widmann and Joshua Bell.

Appearing in numerous radio and television recordings and broadcasts, Pogostkina's passion for contemporary music is evident in her highly acclaimed recording of Pēteris Vasks’ complete violin works, released in Spring 2012.

Born in St. Petersburg, Alina Pogostkina grew up in Germany. The first years she received her violin lessons from her father A. Pogostkin. She later studied with Antje Weithaas at Berlin’s Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler. She plays the 1717 “Sasserno” by Antonio Stradivari, generously provided to her by the Nippon Music Foundation.

Mindful Music Retreat Logo Alina Pogostkina with Susanne Feld and Leonie von Arnim

by Alina Pogostkina with Susanne Feld and Leonie von Arnim

It is my vision to create a place of support for young musicians, on the physical, mental and emotional level. On my path I have learned many different tools and ways of becoming more authentic, more relaxed in my body on stage, more at peace with who I am as a musician and as a human being, and I feel the calling to support others on this journey.

Therefore I have created the MINDFUL MUSIC RETREAT. In this unique Retreat I will be offering masterclasses, in which we are going to explore music with a fresh approach. Coming from the Russian violin tradition, I will give impulses on how to develop a healthy technique, but my focus will be on creativity, joy and authenticity in music making. To expand and deepen the learning and experience I will for the first time be collaborating with Susanne Feld (http://www.susannefeld.de/) and Leonie von Arnim (http://www.leonievonarnim.com/). With this newly developed holistic approach to music making, we will support you in some common problems such as stage fright, pressure and self doubt, physical limitations or blocks. As experienced facilitators for retreats and working with individuals, Susanne Feld & Leonie von Arnim will be creating a framework, in which you can look at, work with and start to release the tensions around those topics and problems.

These combined elements will give you the capacity to connect even more deeply with your very individual way of being a musician.

The tools will be: Alexander Technique, Life Coaching, Meditation, Embodiment Practices in one on one and group sessions. We will also have the space and time to share and exchange our experiences.

Amongst musicians it is not very common to talk about problems. Very different from sports, where people get emotional and physical support on a regular basis. In this retreat we are going to start to establish this kind of support for musicians as well, since we are doing a highly demanding job on many different levels.

Being on this journey means a lot to me and I am hoping that we can be of service to many artists, who are interested in opening their minds and hearts.

It is my vision to create a place of support for young musicians, on the physical, mental and emotional level. On my path I have learned many different tools and ways to become more authentic, more relaxed in my body on stage, more at peace with who I am as a musician and as a human being, and I feel the calling to support others on this journey.
