- Honorary Professor of Conservatory of Moscow, Novosibirsk and Odessa

- Zacharia Zorin will teach at the Academy: «Rencontres Musicales Internationales des Graves», France
A disciple of the Stolarski–Oïstrakh school, Zacharia Zorin enjoyed exceptional tuition: the Stolarski school, the Odessa Conservatory, the Moscow Gnessine Institute. Concert and chamber performer as well as conductor, Zacharia also holds a doctorate in musical pedagogy. His career began in the former USSR as soloist in the agency Mosconcert. He also conducted the Chamber Orchestra of Odessa and was professor of violin at the Novosibirsk conservatory. Having been awarded for the best interpretation of the works of Szymanowski at the Warsaw "Autumn Festival" and at the height of his musical career, Zorin decided to leave the USSR for political reasons. Having had his Soviet citizenship withdrawn, Zorin moved to Israel where he continued his international career as soloist in various prestigious institutions : the Jerusalem Soloist Ensemble, the Kol–Israel Orchestra, and the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra with whom he performed all over the world under the direction of the greatest conductors of the XX century : Metha, Bernstein, Solti, Barenboïm, Abado… Inspired by other soloist friends from this legendary orchestra, he founded the "Zorin Quartet". Invited to France in 1980, he became the concertmaster of the Bordeaux National Orchestra, without jeopardising his solo career. Highly sought–after by various contemporary composers, J. Dorfman dedicated his concerto for violin to Zorin who performed its world première with the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra. The era of Perestroïka gave him the opportunity to return to his country of birth to give a triumphant tour in 1989. Since his first steps on the professional stage at the age of 10, Zorin has interpreted almost the entire violin repertoire with symphony orchestras and in recitals on all five continents.?Conscious to share his immense experience with young musicians in France, Zorin founded the Professional Institute for Violin in Bordeaux, and is artistic director of the Rencontres Internationales des Graves, a fitting synthesis of his passion for stage and pedagogy.
