Evtushenko and Esaias Järnegard. In the coming  seasons he will be performing world premières of concertos dedicated to him  in Europe, Asia, and North and South America. Hugo also loves devising  concerts and events that combine music with the other arts, notably dance  and literature. He is currently working with the English composer Bill Connor  on “An Improvised Violin Concerto.”  This season’s highlights include concertos by Bach, Mozart, Prokofiev,  Schnittke, Hartmann, Shchedrin, Piazzolla, Auerbach, Glass, Lutoslawski,  Takemitsu and world premieres of concertos by Tobias Broström, Sergey N.  Evtushenko and Albert Schnelzer in venues including Carnegie Hall, Mariinsky  Theatre Concert Hall, Chicago Symphony Hall and Cadogan Hall (London).

Next season features tours in China and the USA with his own string  orchestra, tours in Sweden and China with Bach’s solo partitas and sonatas,  and a series of concerts at Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. Hugo has a passion for chamber music and gives regular recitals in  prestigious halls across Europe and the Far East, collaborating with artists  such as Anne-Sofie von Otter, Steven Isserlis, Angela Hewitt, Michael Collins,  Torleif Thedéen, Leslie Howard, Staffan Scheja, Michael Tsalka and Henrik  Måwe. He is also regularly invited to renowned music festivals such as The  Baltic Sea Festival (Sweden), Hermitage Music Festival (St Petersburg), St-  Denis-Festival (Paris), Cervantino (Mexico), Edinburgh Festival (England),  Gotland Chamber Music Festival (Sweden). Hugo is the artistic director of his  own festival O/MODƏRNT at Ulrikdals Palace Theatre Confidencen,  Stockholm, and a new festival in Kazan, Russia.

Hugo regularly gives masterclasses and seminars on violin teaching, and  lectures on music-related subjects all over the world. In autumn 2008, he  was invited to the post of guest violin teacher and lecturer in music history at  a newly-started university in New York. At the heart of Hugo’s teaching is the  exploration of ways to apply the physical and spiritual aspects of meditation  to the art of practising, playing and living in music. He is currently working  on a series of articles with Simone Kotva which explore music-making and  repetition through the lens of various strands of Continental Philosophy. Hugo began his violin studies in London before going to the University of  Toronto. He continued his studies with the Russian violinists, Nina and Oleg  Balabina in Sweden, where he has now settled as a Swedish citizen. Together with many scholarships Hugo has won the international competitions Giovani  Talenti and Rovere d’Oro at San Bartolomeo al Mare, Italy (2002), and the  Mendelssohn Cup in Bari, Italy (2004). In 2007 he was admitted as a Fellow  of the Royal Schools of Music in the United Kingdom. Hugo plays on a  Giovanni Battista Guadagnini from Milan, 1751.
