Nadezda Tokareva

Nadezda Tokareva was born in 1977 in Penza, Russia into a family of musicians. Her violin studies began in Penza at the age of 5 at the local children's music school, and continued at the Penza Music College where she studied under Professor L.S.Romadina and graduated with honors in 1996. She then moved to Moscow, where she entered the Moscow State Conservatory and studied with Professor E.D.Grach; she graduated in 2001, and then continued on with post-graduate work until 2003. She has subsequently participated in several Master Classes in Italy and Israel. Nadezda is currently an assistant to Professor Grach at the Moscow State Conservatory.

Already during her student years, Nadezda won awards at several prestigious international competitions - such as Third Prize at the 7th International Violin Competition in Kloster-Schontal (Germany, 1997), the Grand Prix at the 1st International "Violin of the North" Competition (Yakutsk, Russia, 1997), First Prize at the International A.Yampolksy Violin Competition (Penza, 1999), and Second Prize at the I.Paganini Violin Competition (Moscow, 2003).

Since 1999, Nadezda has been a soloist with the Moscow State Academic Philharmonic Society, with whom she has performed numerous concerts in the great halls of Russia, as well as concert venues throughout the former Soviet Republics, Europe, Israel, Turkey, China, Vietnam, and the United States. Most of these concerts fall under the auspices of the chamber group "Moskovia", directed by E.D.Grach, which is derived from the larger orchestra. Beyond her work with these ensembles, Nadezda has worked with a number of Russian and international symphonic and chamber orchestras - such as the Moscow State Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra "Russian Philharmonic Society", the Ukraine National Symphony, the "Concertino" Chamber Orchestra (Germany), and the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Polish Radio. In addition, she has participated in several international music festivals, in Macedonia, France, Spain, and US.


"Tokareva was a standout through her taxing solo [on Tchaikovsky's Marche Slav], her expressive violin shifting effortlessly from the muscular to the ineffably tender."

Daytona Beach News Journal (US)

"Nadezda Tokareva... gave a moving, beautifully-toned performance of two fragments for violin and orchestra by Tchaikovsky ("Souvenir d'un lieu cher")... it is hard to imagine it being better performed than it was in this concert."

Cape Coral Daily Breeze (US)
