Violinist Elmar Oliveira, whose remarkable combination of impeccable artistry and old-world elegance sets him apart as one of our most celebrated living artists, remains the first and only American violinist to win the Gold Medal at Moscow’s prestigious Tchaikovsky International Competition. He is also the first violinist to receive the coveted Avery Fisher Prize as well as First Prize at the Naumburg International Competition.
