Vladimir & Anton Jablokov are brothers who share a rare gift – mastery of the classical violin. These Slovakian virtuosi have been competing against each other ever since they were children.
“Our Dad would say to us ‘Fight each other all you like, just make sure you put the violins down first…”
Having played together for over twenty years now, Vladimir & Anton have learned to channel their sibling rivalry into emotionally charged and technically breathtaking performances. The brothers push their instruments and each other on to great heights of artistic expression, beautiful harmony and thrilling duels; this is sibling rivalry like you have never heard it before.
Resident in Ireland for more than ten years, Vladimir has established himself as one of the brightest young stars on the Irish classical scene, with concerts and recordings that show his love of both classical and contemporary music. Meanwhile, Anton completed his Masters degree with honours at the acclaimed Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano, and is now studying for a solo diploma. Paradoxically, it is Anton who has developed an astonishing flair for improvisation; which makes for a thrilling and inventive contrast to his older brother’s assured mastery and classic touch.
