Fyodor Orlov is an observing Artist of Promise this summer at the Verbier Festival Academy. He was chosen from among the best young talented pianists who performed in a special concert at Moscow’s Zaryadye Hall in the spring. The concert featured six students of Moscow’s leading music institutions—Gnessin Cchool, Central Music School of the P. I. Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory, and the Children’s Music School of the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory. The event was organized in partnership with Bank Julius Baer. Fyodor is a student of Elena Berezkina at the Gnessin State Musical College. He is a Fellow of the Vladimir Spivakov Foundation and, last year, he received a Third Degree Grant Grant for Culture and Art from the Mayor of Moscow.
