Join violinist Vladimir Jablokov and his brother Anton Jablokov for an unforgettable evening filled with beautiful classical melodies and themes from movies and musicals, performed in their unique, energetic style. Vladimir and Anton will be accompanied by Adam Kuruc on piano and Peter Vizvari on double bass.

Born into a family of virtuoso classical musicians, the fourth generation of musical maestros in Bratislava, Vladimir and Anton began their formal violin training at the age of six, surrounded by music from birth. Their live performances are electric and exhilarating, blending classical music with the playfulness and simplicity of traditional folk.

Vladimir has performed in most of the major venues in Ireland and in recent years he regularly headlines Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and Dublin’s 3Arena. This event offers a rare occasion to see Vladimir in an intimate setting, with an opportunity to meet and greet after the show.

Vladimir’s story

Violinist Vladimir Jablokov was born into a family of virtuoso classical musicians. He began his formal classical-violin training at the age of six. His father Alexander was a touring solo Violinist as well as a violin lecturer at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. His mother was the leader of the National Operetta Theatre in Bratislava. All six children (Vladimir is third) grew up playing music. At the age of 18, Vladimir was due to start training at The Academy of Performing Arts, but years of regimented instrumental studies left him craving a break from classical music. He packed his bags – and a fishing rod – and left for Ireland in pursuit of adventure.  Two weeks into his adventure he ran out of money so he started busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street. Since then he has never stopped playing, starting with corporate events and weddings he soon moved to concert halls and he has never looked back.

Vladimir Jablokov has been thrilling audiences since he first moved to Ireland 17 years ago. Vladimir’s live performances are nothing short of electric and exhilarating as he brings his skilled fusion of classical music with the playfulness, energy, passion and emotion of gipsy, folk and popular music to intense life.  In 2013 he began collaborating with his brother Anton (now called ‘The Violin Brothers’) on a regular basis.   This led to touring the UK with his brother as Special Guests to Soprano Katherine Jenkins and playing support to Il Divo at 3 Arena.

To date, he has released 9 albums including ‘Vladimir’s Classical Christmas’, ‘Classical Twist’, ‘Slovak Festival Orchestra CD as Solo Violin and Conductor’, ‘The Violinists Vladimir and Anton’, ‘Vladimir and Anton Live Album’.

His annual Viennese Christmas concerts became one of the most in-demand shows in Ireland including multiple sell-out shows at the National Concert Hall, Dublin. This does not include the countless tour dates annually including other headline shows, solo shows and performances with his brother in Ireland and the UK in several venues such as INEC Killarney, University Concert Hall, Limerick, Wexford Opera House, Cork Opera House, BBC Proms in Belfast, Wilderness Festival UK.
