Pablo SaravíPablo Saraví, violin

Born in Paraná, Argentina, Pablo Saraví studied violin with Miguel Puebla, Szymsia Bajour, Alberto Lysy and Yehudi Menuhin.

He embarked upon the development of his first musical activities in Mendoza with his first shows at the age of eleven, until 1982, in which he continued his musical career in Buenos Aires. He has won 1st Prize in every Argentine competition of his specialty, amongst which figures the Concurso Argentino de Música that included the OEA-CIDEM Prize.

Between 1987 and 1990 he studied in Switzerland and there was chosen by Yehudi Menuhin as Assistant Professor in Switzerland’s International Academy. Together with Alberto Lysy and the very Menuhin he played in many concerts as a soloist mainly in Europe, from Greece to northern Germany, passing through Monaco and Luxembourg.

Pablo Saraví has played throughout Argentina and in almost all of the countries of the Americas, in the majority of European countries, Russia, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Israel and in northern Africa, both as a soloist, recitalist or as a member of different orchestras formed by musicians from across the globe. Saraví is the 1st Violin and founding member of the World Orchestra for Peace founded in 1995 by Sir Georg Solti and continued today by Maestro Valery Gergiev. With this wonderful orchestra, -whose row of 1st Violins is formed by concertinos and soloists of celebrated orchestras from around the globe- Saraví has given fifteen concerts for Peace in memorable occasions (in London, Berlin, Geneva, San Petersburg, Beijing and Jerusalem, amongst others). During 2010 the WOP will once again unite to play for Peace in London, Hamburg and Salzburg.

He has acted as Director/Soloist of the Camerata Bariloche during numerous seasons, with notable success in international tours (USA and Europe 2007, Mexico 2008). He is also Concertino of the Bach Academy of Buenos Aires and has been for the Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires (Teatro Colón) for the last two decades.

Recently, Pablo Saraví has founded two chamber ensembles: Quartet Petrus and the Ensamble Instrumental de Buenos Aires (EIBA).

He has been twice awarded, that is to say in 1999 and in 2009, with the Premio Konex (in 2009 with the Platinum Konex) for being “one of the most relevant personalities in classical music in Argentina”.

He has recorded, amongst other works, two CDs alongside Alicia Belleville: “Llanuras” and “Romanticismos Olvidados”.

Pablo Saraví is also a recognised and enthusiastic specialist in lutherie. He has written a book titled “Italian Violin Making in Argentina” published in 2002 in Cremona, Italy. For this reason he formed part of the judging panel in the Concurso Internacional de Laudería in Querétaro (Mexico) in 2006, and in May 2009 he gave a conference on the subject in Arizona (USA), invited by the International Violin Making Association.

In May,2012, The Petrus Quartet has been honoured with the Prize Francavilla di Sicilia, by virtue of its artistic merits and promotion of Argentine's music and culture.
