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.

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.

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.

MINDFUL MUSIC MAKING

My Vision

My vision is to create a safe space for musicians, where they find the emotional, psychological and physical support, which is so often lacking in common music education.

We are expected to perform at the highest level under extraordinary pressure, to compete with each other and, at the same time, still be good colleagues.
We are expected to open our hearts and connect with our deepest emotions. But we are rarely shown how to do this.

My dream is to create a community of people, whose mission is to find out what they wish to express, and who are choosing this wonderful journey in art and music, with awareness, cu- riosity and mutual support.

I believe that the world of classical music can be filled with musicians, who are more empow- ered by self-discovery, instead of just repeatedly playing out old roles. Roles, which we were expected to fulfil (or so we assumed) by our parents, teachers or society. I believe that it is possible to be musicians in this highly demanding world and still be led by our inner truth.

It is time to put that old myth to bed, that the artist is born a deep and emotional character, who is doomed to suffer and use this suffering for his art. We can create a new narrative of aware, empowered artists, who choose to know themselves and can therefore express and serve their music with a more insightful authenticity.

I passionately feel my calling to bring new awareness, support and understanding into the music industry.
