06-11-2006 3:00 pm The Director-General of UNESCO, Koïchiro Matsuura, will name Russian violinist Vladimir Fiodorovich Spivakov as UNESCO Artist for Peace in a ceremony at Organization Headquarters on 7 November at 6 p.m. (Salle des Pas Perdus). During the ceremony, Mr Spivakov and five other musicians will perform a concert.
Spivakov_300.jpg Mr Matsuura will designate Mr Spivakov as UNESCO Artist for Peace in recognition of his commitment to the arts and to artistic creativity and of his support for UNESCO’s ideals.

Mr Spivakov established the Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra in 1979 and, ten years later, the International Colmar Music Festival (France). President of the Pablo Sarasate Violin Competition in Spain, he has also been Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the National Philharmonic of Russia and President of the Moscow Performing Arts Centre since 2000.

In 1984, the violinist set up the Vladimir Spivakov International Charity Foundation whose objective is to assist artistically gifted young people and develop cultural values and traditions. The charity also assists orphanages and children’s hospitals.

UNESCO's Artists for Peace are personalities who – thanks to their influence, charisma and fame - help to promote UNESCO’s message. Among the artists working with UNESCO are actress Patricia Velasquez (Venezuela); musician Gilberto Gil (Brazil, currently his country’s culture minister); composer Missa Johnouchi (Japan); soprano Sumi Jo (Republic of Korea), singer and Gypsy Kings founder Chico Bouchikhi (France), author Navarre Scott Momaday (USA) and musician Manu Dibango (Cameroon)*.
