Vadim Gluzman (born 1973) is a Ukrainian-born Israeli classical violinist.
Born in the former Soviet Union, Vadim Gluzman spent most of his childhood in Riga, Latvia, and began violin studies at age 7. He studied with Roman Šnē in Latvia and Zakhar Bron in Russia. In 1990, his family moved to Israel, where he became a student of Yair Kless. In the United States, his teachers were Arkady Fomin and, at the Juilliard School, Dorothy DeLay and Masao Kawasaki. Early in his career, Gluzman enjoyed the encouragement and support of Isaac Stern. In 1994, he received the prestigious Henryk Szeryng Foundation Career Award.
Gluzman plays the 1690 Stradivarius violin, known as the "Ex-Leopold Auer" (after its previous owner, Hungarian violinist Leopold Auer). It is on extended loan from the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
