Ranking among the elite as both a conductor and pianist, Mikhail Pletnev began his career a decade later than Kremer, but, like the violinist, gained international fame through victory at the International Tchaikovsky Competition. Winner of a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance together with Martha Argerich, Pletnev was 31 years old when he met Mikhail Gorbachev at a Washington superpower summit where he had been invited to perform. It is thanks to this friendship that he formed the Russian National Orchestra in 1990, the first non state-supported symphony orchestra in Russia since 1917, which he has overseen as artistic director with great success ever since.
