Lutenist, guitarist, musicologist, and documentary film director, Oleg Timofeyev was born to a musical family that gave the world several generations of professional musicians. He received his first music lessons from his mother, an excellent cello player. Later he studied classical guitar with the famous Muscovite teacher Kamil Frautschi. In 1989, Oleg Timofeyev was invited to the University of Iowa to direct the Collegium Musicum. A few years later he received his M.A. in Early Music Performance from USC, under the guidance of the famous lutenist James Tyler. In 1999, Timofeyev defended his Ph.D. dissertation “The Golden Age of the Russian Guitar: Repertoire, Performance Practice, and Social Function of the Russian Seven-String Guitar, 1800-1850” at Duke University under the supervision of Prof. Peter Williams. Dr. Timofeyev has recorded more than a dozen solo and ensemble albums to great world-wide critical acclaim. He has taught at universities and conservatories in the US, Russia, and Ukraine.

Oleg Timofeyev has worked for the revival of Russian music played with authentic technique on the seven-string guitar, often in collaboration with other artists, including the Russian Roma guitarist Sasha Kolpakov, the Kolpakov Trio, and recently with the American guitarist John Schneiderman as the duo The Czar’s Guitars, releasing the CD Souvenirs of Russia.
