Maxim Kosinov is a violinist known for his ability to captivate audiences with his combination of virtuosity and sophistication. Born in St Petersburg (1983) he combines the great Russian musical tradition with wide-ranging experience gained through a myriad of artistic collaborations in Europe. After graduating from the Specialist Music School in St. Petersburg in 2001, Maxim went on to study with Uwe Martin Haiberg at the Universität der Künste in Berlin, where he obtained a diploma in 2009. His teachers also included Vladimir Ovtcharek in Saint Petersburg, and Marie Leonhard (baroque violin) in Amsterdam. He has participated in masterclasses with renowned violinists, including Gerard Poulet and György Pauk. Maxim is very grateful for the generous support of the Gartow Foundation and the Zeit Foundation (Germany) as well as the Hattori Foundation (UK).

Since his first solo recital at the age of five, Maxim has regularly appeared as a soloist in Russia, as well as internationally in some prestigious venues such as the Philharmonic Hall in Saint Petersburg, Laeiszhalle Hamburg and Seoul Arts Centre to name a few. He has performed with orchestras including the Munich Radio Orchestra, Kammerakademie Potsdam, Sofia Philharmonic, the Opole Philharmonic, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra and the OSUANL orchestra in Monterrey, Mexico.

During the season 2016-2017 Maxim is appearing as a leader of La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra, Brussels. He has also been Concertmaster in the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, the Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra and Munich Radio Orchestra.
