The Slovakian violinist Dalibor Karvay is already one of the most distinguished young soloists in Europe. Besides almost innumerable competition successes, including the "Concours International de Violon Tibor Varga" in Switzerland (2003) or at the "David Oistrakh International Violin Competition" in Moscow (2008), Karvay performs as a soloist with orchestras such as the Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Camerata Salzburg, Het Gelders Orkest, the Czech Philharmonic, the National Theater Orchestra of Mannheim, the Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra under renowned conductors such as Leif Segerstam, Marek Janowski and Leoš Svárovský, just to name a few. His chamber music partners include the likes of Radek Baborák or Boris Kushnir. Also concerts with Mstislav Rostropovich at Windsor Castle for Prince Charles in 2003 illustrate his successful work. In addition to many national and international awards he received in 2009 the award for his outstanding artistic achievements and for successful international representation of the Slovakian Republic from the hands of Slovakian Culture Minister. Moreover, the Foundation Tatrabanka handed him the prize for the “young artist of the year” in 2011. Since 2014 Dalibor Karvay also holds a violin professorship at the Vienna Conservatory Private University. He plays on a violin built by Julia Maria Pasch.
