VIOLIN 1959 : Second Prize
Albert Markov immigrated to the United States from Russia in 1975 and 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 wowed them with dazzling pyrotechnics."

Following performances with symphonies and solo appearances at Carnegie Hall in New York, Albert Markov performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and played to great media acclaim in concert halls in Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, Houston, Toronto, Montreal and other cities of North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. He appeared with such conductors as James Conlon, Neeme Jarvi, David Zinman, Andrew Litton, Lukas Foss, Sixten Ehrling, Kazuyoshi Akiyama, Sergiu Comissiona, Sir Charles Groves and others. After almost 20 years of absence from the Russian concert stage, Albert Markov entered the music scene again in Moscow in May, 1994.

His recent works are the Violin Concertos, Formosa Suite for Violin and Orchestra (both recorded with the Russian National Orchestra on the Sunrise label) and the Symphony Kinnor David premiered in Moscow. His recordings are on Sunrise, Melodia and Musical Heritage Society labels. His compositions which have been published by G. Schirmer (USA) and Muzyka (Russia) are: Sonatas for Solo and Duo Violins, Three Rhapsodies, Caprices.

Albert Markov is the Music Director of the Rondo Chamber Orchestra appearing both as a soloist and conductor. He teaches at the Manhattan School of Music. Among his students are prize winners of the International Competitions and members of the leading orchestras. His Violin Technique and Little Violinist (G. Schrimer, USA) are worldwide recognized violin methods.

Albert Markov studied at the Kharkov and Moscow conservatories under Lechinsky and Yankelevich.
