Olga Domnina is a Gold Medal graduate of the Gnesin Institute of Music in Moscow in the class of Mikhail Arkadiev. In 2009 she completed the two-year "Diploma in Performance" course of postgraduate study at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Prof Hamish Milne, for which the Academy had granted her a merit scholarship. At RAM she won the Macfarren Prize for Best Solo Recital, awarded previously to Sir Clifford Curzon and Dame Myra Hess.

Since moving to London and entering the Royal Academy of Music in 2007, Miss Domnina has been dividing her time between England and Italy. She has collaborated with such internationally acclaimed artists as violinists Julian Rachlin, Viktor Tretyakov, Vadim Repin, and Boris Brovtsyn, violist Paul Silverthorne, cellist Guido Schiefen, baritone Sergei Leiferkus. In October 2011 she attained international acclaim with the world premiere of Vladmir Genin’s piano cycle “Seven Melodies for the Dial” at the Moscow House of Music, which has since been released by Challenge Records International to worldwide critical plaudits. A European premiere of the recorded work took place in October 2013 at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
