Ilyashov, a native of Minsk, started studying the violin
at age six and was, from the beginning, a prodigy. He and
his family moved to America 15 years ago, where Ilyashov
made a name for himself performing on various television
stations and National Public Radio. In 1996, at age 17,
Ilyashov released his first CD, Fantasie Romantique.

Most recently, Ilyashov was the concertmaster of The
Orchestra of the Americas during a summer tour of the
United States and South America. He has performed
throughout Europe, Asia and North America as a soloist
and chamber musician.

Andrius Zlabys, a native of Lithuania, was the winner at
the 2003 Cleveland International Piano Competition, where
he performed with the Cleveland Orchestra. He has
performed throughout Europe and North America, and made
his Carnegie Hall debut in March 2001, playing with the
New York Youth Symphony Orchestra. Zlabys has also been a
featured soloist with the New Hampshire Music Festival.

The concert is part of the Silver Series, a series of
professional guest artists whose work reflects the best in
American and world cultures.
