Andrey Serdyukovsky

In the orchestra since 2011

Andrey Serdyukovsky was born in Moscow in 1981. His musical talent was apparent since his very early childhood. When he was just 6 years old, he became a laureate of the Moscow young violinists competition.

In 1993, Andrey took part in the “International Children’s Symphony Orchestra” project. In 1994, he received a scholarship from the “New Names” programme and performed both as a soloist and as a concertmaster at a chamber orchestra.

In 1998, Andrey Serdyukovsky became a laureate of the “Classic Heritage” Russian youth competition. In 2001, he finished the Gnessin music school (D.V. Frolovich’s class); in 2005, he graduated from the Maimonid academy (prof. I.I. Boguslavsky’s class). In 2002, Andrey started working for the Bolshoi Theatre. In 2003, he became a member of the Russian National orchestra conducted by M.V. Pletnev.

Since 2011, Andrey Serdyukovsky has been a member of the musicAeterna orchestra.

WHO HAS THE BIGGEST AUTHORITY TO YOU IN THE MUSIC WORLD?
Right now, it is definitely Teodor Currentzis. He must be my guiding star in the world of music. Due to him, I got introduced to authentic performance of baroque music and discovered the true meaning of works by modern composers, who I had been quite skeptical of. Over the time spent with musicAeterna, I have felt my perception of all kinds of music become so much broader.
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN?
I would probably like to learn more about modern music. The musical language of modern composers is something special and completely new to me. This equally concerns new ways of sound-producing and expressive capabilities of traditional instruments. I am still not quite knowledgeable in this area, so this is what I want to develop.
WHAT IS YOUR SOURCE OF INSPIRATION?
Talking to other musicians is the primary one. My social circle has a lot of very talented people engaged in exciting projects. This inspires me, gives me food for thought, and stimulates my own creative search.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES ASIDE FROM MUSIC?
I go in for extreme sports: in the past, it was roller skating and jibbing, now it is snowboarding. I think it is more than a mere coincidence: extreme sports give me the same kind of adrenaline rush as being on stage does.
