About Vyacheslav Gryaznov
Vyacheslav Gryaznov was born in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, a small city in the easternmost reaches of Russia. His musical talent became evident in his early childhood and developed so quickly that his parents, who were not themselves musicians, took the heroic step of giving up everything and moving to far-away Moscow, despite having nothing and no one there, all for the sake of their son’s professional musical education.
Vyacheslav graduated with honors both from the Central Music School of the Moscow State Conservatory where he studied with Professor Manana Kandelaki and from the Moscow Conservatory, class of Professor Yuri Slesarev. He continued at the Moscow Conservatory as a post-graduate student and is on the teaching faculty of its Piano Department. Vyacheslav Gryaznov is a member of the Moscow Philharmonic Society.
Vyacheslav Gryaznov is the author of more than 30 concert arrangements and transcriptions, which have been performed by Boris Berezovsky, Alexander Ghindin, Nikita Mndoyants, Tomoharu Ushida, the Messiaen-Quartet, the Moscow State Chamber Choir, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, and other musicians and collectives. In 2014 he signed a publishing contract with Schott Music (Germany). He is one of the few prominent Russian composers published by them.
