Victor Eresko won the first prize at the Marguerite Long International Competition in Paris in 1963, when he was a twenty-year old student of the Moscow Conservatoire. At the time Marguerite Long said about Eresko: "This young pianist is not only a virtuoso but an inspired poet having an excellent command both of the sound and the keyboard. He reminds me of Rachmaninov".
