Biography

The Chamber Choir of the Moscow Conservatory was created on the initiative of Professor Alexander Sokolov in December 1994 by an outstanding choral conductor of modern times - the People’s Artist of Russia, Professor Boris Tevlin (1931 2012), who permanently headed the choral ensemble until the end of his days. The chorus has won the International Competition of Choruses in Italy (1998), Germany (1999), Austria (2000), Poland (2003) and Latvia (2014). In 2002 the Chamber Choir was the only Russian chorus to represent Russian choral music at the 6th World Forum of Choral Music in Minneapolis (USA).
In 2008 the Chamber Choir’s recording of Rodion Shchedrin’s Russian choral opera Boyarynya Morozova was awarded with an ECHO Klassik.

The chief artistic focus of the Chamber Choir is to perform works by contemporary composers from Russia and other countries.

Alexander Solovyev, artistic director of the Chamber Choir of the Moscow Conservatory and associate professor, was a close colleague of Professor Boris Tevlin since August 2012.
