Konstantin Vassiliev (*1970)
Konstantin Vassiliev was born in Siberia (Russia). He studied Guitar with Arkadiy Bourchanov at the Academy of Music in Novosibirsk, and Composition with Sergey Tossin. In 1995 he began postgraduate studies at the Academy of Music in Muenster, with Reinbert Evers and Georg Hajdu.
Vassiliev composed chamber music for various types of ensemble, but his work remained focused on his main instrument, the guitar. His numerous compositions and arrangements have been published in Europe, as well as in Japan, Canada and the USA. His music sounds experimental and innovative, but it is also stamped by tradition, above all that of the classical Russian school. His musical style distinguishes itself by its diversity: from romantic melancholy through impressionistic fantasies and mysticism, right up to contemporary expressiveness.
For many years the composer worked together with famous performers. His music found a firm place in the repertoire of Shin-Ichi Fukuda, Carlos Bonell, Roman Viazovskiy, Carlo Marchione, Thomas Müller-Pering, Dimitri Illarionov, Matt Palmer, Maximilian Mangold, Sanel Redžić, Irina Kulikova, Ruben Bettencourt, Aynur Begutov, Yuri Liberzon and other highly regarded musicians.
