Viacheslav Dinerchtein (born October 30, 1976) is a prominent violist and an avid promoter of both novel and overlooked viola repertoire. His performances as a recitalist and chamber musician have taken him to prestigious venues, such as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Palacio de Bellas Artes. He has appeared in a large number of music festivals in both North and South America and in Europe and has been a guest artist at International Viola Congresses. Dinerchtein is the dedicatee of several modern compositions for viola, president of the Swiss Viola Society, an editor at Ovation Press, and a member of the Lipkind String Quartet.

Dinerchtein was born in Belarus and immigrated to Mexico in 1991.[1] He resides with his family in Zurich, Switzerland.

His teachers include his father Boris Dinerchtein, Joseph de Pasquale at the Peabody Conservatory, and Roland Vamos at Northwestern University.[2] Dinerchtein holds the title of Doctor of Musical Arts from Northwestern University.
