Siberian-born Maxim Vengerov is one of the greatest violinists in the world today, acclaimed for his concerts, award-winning recordings and humanitarian work. As he turns 40, here are 10 facts about this brilliant musician.
A mysterious arm injury kept Vengerov away from playing for four years. He devoted the time to studying conducting, his work for UNICEF and raising his family. In 2007 he received the Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum in Davos, which honours those who have used their art to reach out to other cultures. Photo: PA
