musical style has been called, romantic, silky, melodic and smooth. It
is the passion for his music made him one of the best Adult Contemporary
Artists in Australia.
IGOR first picked up a saxophone in junior high school in Moscow, and upon graduation from Conservatorium of Music in Russia, played his first professional gig as sax soloist for pop star Irina Ponarovskaya, who is Honoured Artists of Russia and Miss CHANEL of Russia. Weekly national television appearances with top Moscow Artists helped make him a household name. After reaching the top of the industry in Moscow IGOR moved to Australia and since then has fast established a reputation of being one of the country's most versatile and sought after musicians.
In 1998, his first Australian release, simply
entitled, IGOR, was produced, and a new era in his musical career was
launched. This debut self-titled solo album of original material takes
his music and his sax to places uncharted. Becoming a solo artist has
led to the growing demand to perform live. IGOR's funked out smooth and
silky saxophone has been heard at many major festivals, concert halls,
and jazz clubs worldwide.
A review about his album "You And I" (April 2003) is here.
