About Mark Peskanov, violin
Mark Peskanov (born in Odessa, Ukraine – then part of the USSR) is an American virtuoso violinist, known as a soloist, chamber musician, composer, conductor, and concert presenter. Peskanov began playing the piano at age three, and the violin at seven. He received early musical training at the Stolyarsky school. In 1973, at the age of fifteen, he emigrated to the United States, where he attended the Aspen Music Festival and the Juilliard School. Upon his recital debut at Carnegie Hall, The New York Times declared, "Mark Peskanov is a tremendous young violinist and his Friday evening concert at Carnegie Hall was a triumph…He has it all—technique, temperament, and taste." Since 2005, Peskanov is president and artistic/executive director of Bargemusic.
