Elizaveta Tyun

manusElizaveta Tyun was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1995. Music has been her greatest passion since the age of five after she had her first violin lessons. At the age of eight Elizaveta entered the Specialist Music School of the St. Petersburg Conservatoire. In 2012 she became a student of Chetham's School of Music (Manchester) in the class of Jan Repko, and in 2014 continued with the same professor already as a student of the Royal College of Music (London), with her studies being kindly supported by Soiree d'Or Committee. In 2017 Elizaveta became a student of Professor Felix Andrievsky.

Elizaveta's first concert performance experience was at the age of eight, with a symphony orchestra from Lindau, Germany, in The Marble Palace of St. Petersburg. Since then Elizaveta has performed in different venues both of Russia (e.g. the Small Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the Mikhailovsky Theatre of Opera and Ballet, the Glazunov Hall of St. Petersburg Conservatoire) and of other European countries – including the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and Italy. Elizaveta also participated in master-classes with Professors Zakhar Bron, Helmut Zehtmair, Christian Altenburger, Vadim Gluzman and many others.

Elizaveta has won prizes in many international competitions and is also a Category Finalist of the BBC Young Musician 2014. In 2016 Elizaveta won the First Prize of Grand Prize Virtuoso Competition and was awarded a performance at the Royal Albert Hall (London).
