På dansk

Victoria Borisova-Ollas er født i 1969 i Rusland, men hun har boet i Sverige i mange år. Hun fik sin første internationale anerkendelse, da hendes værk Wings of the Wind fik andenpladsen i Masterprize-konkurrencen i 1998. Kritikerne var begejstrede og beskrev hendes værk som et stykke ”sparkling sonic poetry”. Hun gør brug af et originalt og innovativt vokabularium af lyde til at skabe akustiske rum af storslået skønhed og intensitet, som kan fortrylle både den sofistikerede lytter og den nysgerrige, men knap så erfarne lytter. Victoria påbegyndte sine musikstudier i en tidlig alder. Efter at være dimitteret fra Central School of Music i Moskva og senere fra det berømte Tchaikovsky-konservatorium, fortsatte hun sine studier i komposition på Musikhögskolan i Malmö og på Royal College of Music i London
