Albert Markov, violinist, composer, teacher, and conductor.

He is the only concert violinist of the 20th and 21st century who created major compositions like Opera, Symphony, Violin Concerto etc. which are performed internationally and commercially recorded.

Markov studied violin under Stolyarsky and Meksin (Ekaterinburg), Lechinsky (Kharkov) and Yankelevich (Moscow) Winning the Gold Medal in the Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels, he was concertizing extensively. Aram Khachaturian wrote: “Albert Markov’s activities have had many all spheres of actions, he shows a remarkable talent. As a violinist, he is one of our best. As a teacher, he has trained excellent violinists. As a composer, he is remarkable in the originality of his compositions. In summary, Albert Markov is an outstanding musician.”

After his immigration to the United States in 1975, Markov made his sensational debut with the Houston Symphony in May, 1976, prompting a New York Times reviewer to write: “The audience roared approval, coming to its feet for three standing ovations, Mr. Markov vowed them with dazzling pyrotechnics.”

Following performances with symphonies and solo appearances at Carnegie Hall in New York, Markov performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and played to great media acclaim in concert halls in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Houston, Toronto, Montreal and other cities of North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
