After studying violin and composition in St. Petersburg, Ilya Gringolts attended the Juilliard School of Music, where he studied with Itzhak Perlman. He is the youngest winner of the ‘Premio Paganini’ Competition (1998).
He devotes himself both to the great orchestral repertoire and to contemporary and little-visited works, giving the world premieres of works by P. M. Davies, A. R. Thomas, C. Bertrand and M. Jarrell, and B. Lang. He is also very interested in historically informed performance practice and collaborates for this with renowned ensembles such as the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, Archangel, and Oxford Philharmonia.
In spring 2020, Ilya Gringolts was appointed artist in residence at the Musiktage Badenweiler alongside guests Meta4 and Kristian Bezuidenhout, as well as the Gringolts Quartet, of which he is first violin since it was founded in 2008.
He performs numerous recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, BIS, Hyperion and Onyx.
In addition to his position as Professor of Violin for the Zurich Academy of Arts, he is also an International Fellow of Violin at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.
