Biography
 

Ivan Vishnevsky was born in 1960 in Moscow. He began to study music rather late at the age of 17. It took him one year to finish a music school. Next he continued to study in a music college. In 1983 he graduated from the Russian Academy of Music as a composer (class of prof. Chernov). He also regards Boris Tchaikovsky, George Sviridov and Sergei Slonimsky as his teachers.

Sonata for piano (performed by E.Derzhavina) took the second place at the Euroradio competition in 1995. The Kharkov Guitar-quartet won a competition in Bavaria (1990) performing a composition of Vishnevsky. He participated in a festival of Russian choral music in 1990.

In 1990s mostly chamber music was performed. In 2000 he started composing the large form again. Thus, a Symphony, poems for a string orchestra, concerts for piano and orchestra, series of choral cycles appeared.

«Ladnye songs» of Vishnevsky were performed at the “All-Russia choral assemblies” festival (2005-2006). The choruses (lyrics by Yesenin and Rubtsov) were performed by the “Raspev” Vladimir choir (conductor Natalie Kolesnikova) at the Rakhmaninoff-hall of the Moscow Conservatory.

The "Credo" Chamber Choir from Kyiv (conductor Bogdan Plish) performed sacred Orthodox songs of Vishnevsky at the Moscow Easter Festival (2006-2008) and at the "Gogol-fest" festival (Kyiv, 2008). Coral music of Vishnevsky is also performed by conductors Alexei Pouzakov and Vladimir Kozliakov.

Since 1986 Vishnevsky has been working as a radio journalist, since 1998 he has been writing for newspapers, where he popularizes academic music – both classical and newest.

Ivan Vishnevsky is a member of the Russian Composers Union and the Russian journalists Union.
