The „Gnesin Virtuosi“ Youth Orchestra was founded in 1990 by Mikhail Khokhlov. Members of this orchestra are musically gifted young students of the Gnesin Music School, which usually attend this school from early childhood. They play under the direction of Mikhail Khokhlov, who is also the director of the conservatory. More than 12,000 young musicians have been trained here over the years, more than 400 graduates have received numerous awards and participated in international competitions. Many artists who have significantly influenced the international music scene in the past began their musical studies at the Gnesin Academy, including prominent personalities such as Igor Oistrakh, Irina Goldstein, Aram Khachaturian and Mstislav Rostropovich. One of the currently most famous graduates is pianist Evgeny Kissin.
