The great Russian-American violinist Albert Markov was born in 1933 in Kharkov, Ukraine. Among his teachers was Yuri Yankelevich (1909-1973) who was the teacher of other leading violinists, among them Leonid Kogan, Vladimir Spivakov, Nelli Shkolnikova and Victor Tretyakov. Markov was the second prize winner at the 1959 International Queen Elisabeth Violin Competition in Brussels, the year that Jamie Laredo was the first and Joseph Silverstein was the third. Following his winning, Markov embarked on an extensive solo career and in 1975, emigrated to the USA. He has appeared as soloist with many leading orchestras under such conductors as Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Kurt Sanderling, Kirill Kondrashin, James Conlon, Neeme Jarvi, David Zinman, Andrew Litton, Lukas Foss, Sixten Ehrling, Kazuyoshi Akiyama, Sergiu Comissiona and Sir Charles Groves. Albert Markov is an outstanding musician, praised by critics around the world for his beautifully warm silky tone and for his dazzling virtuosity. He is also a noted composer of many works for violin, violin and orchestra, chamber works, one symphony and three operas. Markovís son, Alexander Markov is also a well-known virtuoso violinist and the two had frequently appeared together. In recent years, Albert Markov has also become a highly respected violin pedagogue. He published several violin instruction and performing analysis books. Since 1981 he has taught in the Manhattan School of Music. The items on the set are taken from Albert Markovís Melodiya recordings made in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Recorded 1956-1963
