Dzeraldas Bidva, violin

“Virtuoso, able not only to solo, but also to conduct an orchestra and keep track of the ensemble at the same time, a great concertmaster with whom the orchestra members feel each other’s shoulder and breathing”, so is the violinist Džeraldas Bidva, the principal violin of Kremerata Baltica and the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra (LCO), described.

Graduate of the National M. K. Čiurlionis School of Arts, the LAMT and Paris Conservatoire, Bidva also appears as a soloist: he performs with various chamber ensembles at festivals in Salzburg and Lockenhaus (Austria), Gstaad and Les Muséiques in Basel (Switzerland), the Risior Chamber Music Festival (Norway), Kronberg (Germany) and elsewhere.

He has presented many impressive programs and projects with Gidon Kremer, as well as concerts with prominent performers and conductors, including Gustav Dudamel, Christoph Eschenbach, Simon Rattle, Martha Argerich, Daniel Trifonov, Mario Brunello, Oleg Maisenberg, Sergej Krylov and others. Young violinists from all over the world come to Bidva’s master classes Ars SummerFest in Lithuania, and the international Mažeikiai Art Festival led by him boasts a high artistic level and an abundance of world-renowned musicians.

As the orchestra’s principal violin (without conductor), he has recorded over 20 albums with orchestras, many of which have won prestigious ICMA, Grammy and Echo Klassik awards. Bidva singles out his solo album, released by the Odradek record company in 2018, together with the LCO, where he documented concerti for violin and orchestra by P. Vasks, A. Šenderovas and J. Juzeliūnas. The album is a significant and worthwhile gift to Lithuania on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Restoration of the State. Currently, Bidva plays Antonio Stradivari’s “Baron Feilitzsch, Heermann”, the violin made in Cremona in 1734.
