Fyodor Cherniavsky was born in London into a family of musicians; his great-grandfather, Avrum, was a
conductor of youth orchestras in the Ukraine during the end of the nineteenth-century. After his education at Repton School
and Cambridge College of Arts and Technology, Mr. Cherniavsky received his formal musical training at the Guildhall School
of Music and Drama in London where his studies included bassoon, viola and piano. He is an Associate of the Guildhall School
of Music and Drama and after being awarded the post-graduate Certificate of Advanced Musical Studies, he studied conducting
with Brian Brockless at Morley College in London and with the legendary Sergiu Celibidache in Munich, Germany.
"...stylish conducting from Fyodor Cherniavsky and an orchestra that played with vigor, tenderness and tonal beauty."

"...a thrilling reading of Morton Subotnick's most dynamic score, 'The Key to Songs,' conductor, Fyodor Cherniavsky
led his mallet-wielders through hailstorms of notes - it had explosive energy."
