As we all know, good music is everywhere, but I was really astonished, when I read the brochure Ein Jahrtausend erleben of the tourist organisation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (eastern Germany) and I found a photo of Arkady Shilkloper at the Jazzfestival Eldena. Now it's the time to portrait Arkady at Avantart as well!
I know Arkady for many years now, we have been on tour together in Russia and Hamburg, my hometown, is nearly a homerun for him and the Moscow Art Trio, he is one of the interesting musicians, who had a classical education but kept the joy of play and improvisation, to create new music from the traditional styles.
Arkady Shilkloper, born in Moscow, played brass instruments at the age of 6 already, and he studied flugelhorn until 1974 at the Moscow Military Music Highschool and other schools. From 1978 to 1985 he was member of the orchestra of the Bolshoi-Theatre and the Bolshoi Brass Quintett. With this world-famous ensemble and as a member of the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra from 1985 to 1989 he undertook numerous world-wide concert tours. Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union he has worked independently both as a solo performer and, since 1990, with Mikhael Alperin and Sergey Starostin in the Moscow Art Trio and in other formations. Shilkloper is in demand as a soloist and a teacher for brass instruments instrument workshops and symposia the world over.
In the past few years he was invited to play with a number of renowned musicians, such as the Vienna At Orchestra, Pierre Favres Singing Dreams or Louis Sclavis' Donaueschingen-Ensemble. Apart from his CD productions with Michael Alperin, the MOSCOW ART TRIO and the participation in other formations, in 1997 he produced his first solo CD entitled Hornology.
