Mikhail Utkin was born in 1952 in Vilnius (Lithuania). His father, a violinist, worked actively as a teacher for many years, in the sixties he was a professor at the H.Eissler High Music School in Berlin. At the age of five Mikhail began taking his music lessons, and in 1959 he became a pupil of the Central Musical School at the Moscow State Conservatory.

The great potentialities of a young musician were already revealed during the early school years. His first concert took place when he was only 12; in 1967 he participated in International Competition of the Prague Radio "Concertino-Praha" and won the First Prize.
In 1970 he was admitted to the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory to the class of professor Mstislav Rostropovich, whose influence was decisive in his musical development. Years of studying at the Conservatory were devoted to penetrating into the secrets of cello-playing skill, acquiring broad knowledge of music, gaining repertoire. Mikhail Utkin showed a great interest in chamber music, which soon found its way to practical and very successful results. As a member of String quartet of the Moscow Conservatory he won the Second Prize at the International String Quartet Competition in Liege (1972).
