Vladimir Landsman (Russia/Canada)

At the age of 12, on the recommendation of David Oistrakh, Vladimir Landsman left the Ukraine for Moscow to continue his studies at the Central Music School and at the Conservatory with his mentor Yuri Yankilevich. In 1963, he won the Third Prize at the Long Thibaud International Competition in Paris, and in 1966, the Grand Prize at the Montreal International Competition.

In 1969, he became a soloist with the Moscow Philharmonic Society and took part in numerous tours of the Soviet Union, playing with major orchestras under such conductors as Kabalevsky, Svetlanov, Rozhdestvensky, Temirkanov, and Järvi.

In 1973, he emigrated to Israel, and made his American debut with Zubin Mehta at the Hollywood Bowl. He has since taken part in numerous concert tours throughout the world, performing with prestigious orchestras in Europe, India, South America, and South Africa, under such renowned conductors as Ozawa, Decker, Dutoit, and Atherton.

A professor at the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Music since 1975, Vladimir Landsman also teaches at various summer music camps and festivals in Italy, France, Switzerland, Finland, and in ex-Yugoslavia. He regularly serves as a member of the jury for major international music competitions in Canada, Italy, Armenia, and Russia.
