Musicians about us


Daniel Fueter

"...The newly opened Zakhar Bron School of Music, which continues the Great Russian violin tradition, takes a unique and important position among all the musical education institutions of the Canton of Zurich.”


Vadim Repin

"...Now, having become a violin soloist and looking back at those years, I understand fully what is required to bring up a young violinist: hours and hours of working with the teacher (when I was small Professor Bron gave me lessons every day), rehearsals with the pianist, regular concerts, which allow young musicians to develop their performance skills, appearances with orchestra."


Daniel Hope

"…It would be an understatement to say that my encounter with Professor Bron completely changed and enriched my life and my personality as a musician. So much of what I have achieved as a violinist takes its origins in the school of Professor Bron. His extensive knowledge of violin technique, his ability to analyze problems, isolate and repair them, his dedication to his students knows no boundaries."
