Origins of Armenia, born in Beirut and living in Madrid, Ara Malikian is a prodigy of the violin with numerous awards, including the prestigious Premio Niccolò Paganini. His career seemed to be relegated to the "classic" context. But his violin took other paths, crossing the Armenian tradition with Middle Eastern and European influences.

The passion for the classic, combined with that for popular music, make Ara Malikian a unique artist of its kind, as well as a force of nature for the intense and very special live.

The Italian public presents "The Incredible Story of Violin", a varied and colorful album, in which all of his extraordinary talent emerges, both as a performer and as a composer. Entirely written by Ara, the album is a melting pot of musical genres, performed with the impeccable technique that distinguishes the artist, mirror of the fascinating and engaging personality of a violinist and an excellent musician.

"The Incredible World Tour of Violin" has so far ringed over 176 concerts around the world, most of which sold out, for almost 300,000 tickets. At his side there is the super band that has been following him for years, the same with which he presented himself at the concert Primo Maggio in Rome of the past year, the first meeting with the Italian public.

After Florence, Ara Malikian will be in concert on Thursday December 13th at the Auditorium della Conciliazione (Rome), Monday 17th at the Teatro Colosseo in Turin, Tuesday 18th at the Politeama Genovese (the Genoa concert is realized in collaboration with Palazzo Ducale and the "Paganini" exhibition Rockstar ", scheduled at Palazzo Ducale from October 19, 2018 to March 10, 2019) and Thursday 20 at the Gran Teatro Geox in Padua.

ARA MALIKIAN - Enfant prodige, Ara Malikian began playing the violin from an early age, led by his father. His talent is soon recognized but the civil war in his country of origin, Lebanon, forces the young artist to leave his country. At the age of twelve, Malikian performed in his first major concert and two years later was the youngest student admitted to the prestigious music school in Hannover, Germany. His studies widened at the theater, attending the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. In the meantime, he continued his insights into the violin and began composing the first pieces, in collaboration with contemporary composers such as Franco Donatoni, Malcolm Lipkin, Kuciano Chailly and others. As a solo violin, he performs all over the world, from Tokyo to Madrid, from Moscow to Belgrade, playing under the direction of important names including Mariss Janssons, Peter Maag, Jesús López Cobos, Vladimir Spivakov, Miguel Ángel Gómez Martínez, Luis Antonio García Navarro, Vassili Sinaisky, Edmond de Stoutz, Gudni Emilson, Juan José Mena, Jo Ann Falleta, pedro Halffter, Alejandro Posada, Cristóbal Halffter or Salvador Brotons. The talent and talents of Ara Malikian begin to be known in every corner of the globe, thanks also to the recognition received at an early age. Among the many, in 1993 he won the Artistic Compliance and Dedication Award and twice won the Music Awards in the category New Music Best Album (2006) and Best Classical Music Performer (2007).
Over the years, Ara Malikian has written and interpreted numerous albums, composing and revisiting important and innovative pieces and collaborating with orchestras and musicians of both the most classical and traditional traditions, from flamenco guitarists to orchestras, demonstrating the artist's enormous talent. and his commitment to the dissemination of music, in any form.
Since 2006 Malikian has collaborated with the Non Profit Music Foundation and with the Spanish composer Jorge Grundman to give life to the Non Profit Music Chamber Orchestra, dedicated to spreading the works of contemporary composers throughout the world. Among the fruits of this collaboration, the albums "Tears of Beauty" and "Meeting with a Friend". In 2008 Ara Malikian created and co-produced the "PaGaGnini" show, an ironic and theatrical review of classic works by Sarasate, Manuel de Falla, Luigi Boccherini, Mozart, Paganini, and others. In the following years he was called to collaborate in the creation and production of concerts and revisitations of classical works, including the "Quattro Stagioni di Vivaldi", currently on tour. Unstoppable, since 2010 the artist has a permanent presence on the TV program "El Club del Pizzicato", a television show dedicated to the diffusion of classical music between children and adolescents. Malikian has also given birth to numerous shows, which have become successes, from "Vivaldi's Eight Seasons" (2011) to "Piazzolla" (2011) to "The Divines" (2012), just to name a few.
With performances in over forty countries around the world, Ara Malikian has been living in Spain for over two decades. His ability to reinterpret the Armenian musical tradition, contaminating it with gypsy, klezmer, tango and flamenco influences, is such as to make it accessible to a wide audience, expressing the full potential of classical music. Many collaborations in this direction, from co-productions to live performances. Last but not least, Ara Malikian has recorded numerous films, collaborating with composers including Alberto Iglesias and with directors such as Pedro Almodóvar, Pascal Gainge and Salvador García Ruiz. - -
