Russian-born and Israeli-raised guitarist Yuri Liberzon ranks among today’s foremost classical guitarists in the United States and the world. His playing has been described as “Transcendent technical prowess at the service of gracious musicality.”
A frequent soloist with symphony and chamber orchestras, Yuri has been recognized for his technical ability and musicality at both international competitions and non-profit organizations, as well as for his arrangements for guitar.
Both Yale University School of Music and Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University awarded him full scholarships to study with two of the world’s leading guitar figures: Manuel Barrueco and Benjamin Verdery. He went on to successfully complete his Graduate Performance Diploma and Bachelor’s degree from Peabody and a Master’s degree from Yale.
