Maxim Vengerov started playing the violin at the age of four and would practice after dinners until he got tired. Later, he began studying the violin with Galina Tourchaninova. He clashed with his strict teacher and refused to play. But when his mother broke down in tears, he immediately picked up the violin and continuously played 17 pieces without any interruption.

At the age of seven, Maxim Vengerov won 1984 International Karol Lipiński and Henryk Wieniawski Young Violin Player Competition. However, his recording career had begun already in 1980 and later was signed by Teldec Label.

He made his most significant breakout in 1994 after recording of violin concertos on London Symphony Orchestra which won two Gramophone Awards in Brittian. In 1997 he became the first classical musician to hold the post for Envoy for Music of the United Nations’ International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

In 2010, Vengerov became chief conductor of Menuhin Festival Gstaad Orchestra. According to some source, the average earning of a conductor is around $33,000 per year.
