Now a representative of today's leading school of Russian music performance, Mr. Omelchenko studied at the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music in the special class of Alexander Tsygankov, who particularly recognized the heartfelt character and distinctive timbre of Peter's string technique. While still a student, Peter won significant awards at many prestigious competitions, such as the “Cup of the North” in Cherepovets.

       Before joining the Osipov National Orchestra, he was a member of the Nekrasov Radio and Television Orchestra, also in Moscow, while performing regularly with several other Russian orchestras and smaller ensembles.

His wide repertoire includes Russian and international folk music, classical music transcriptions, popular favorites, and his own compositions.

        In addition to his performing career, Peter has earned an enviable reputation as an arranger for large and small ensembles. Both the Osipov and Nekrasov orchestras – plus many other groups – have played his arrangements of a wide variety of music. He arranged and orchestrated a Russian folk-instrument interpolation for world-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli’s new recording of “Lara’s Theme” from Doctor Zhivago, in which the Osipov National Orchestra participated.
