Viktor Tretyakov

The President of the International Violin Competition in Krasnoyarsk is a violinist, teacher, conductor and he is truly a symbol of the Russian violin school.

In 1966, when he was a student at the Moscow State Conservatory in the class of the legendary Yuri Yankelevich, he won the International Tchaikovsky Competition. From that time on, the musician’s fast-paced performing career began, and to this day he performs all over the world with unfailing success.

The maestro’s repertoire is based on violin concertos of the 19th century, and his interpretations of works of the 20th century, primarily by D.D. Shostakovich and S.S. Prokofiev, are recognized as a benchmark.
