Russian violinist Sergei Dogadin was awarded first prize at the 2015 Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover.

The competition is named after the violinist and composer Joseph Joachim who was royal concertmaster in Hannover from 1852-1867. Joachim contributed greatly to musical life in the city, the organisation also supports the development of young artists and promotes music in Hannover.

Sergei studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, he has won prizes at nine international music competitions and performed at the world’s most illustrious concert venues following his debut at the Grand Hall of the Saint Petersburg Philharmonie under V.Petrenko and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic orchestra.
