Boris Ivanovich Tishchenko (1939, Leningrad — 2010 St-Petersburg) is a prominent Russian composer, honoured by the Title Merited Master of Arts of Russia.

Among his teachers were such great masters of music composition as G. Ustvolskaya, V. Salmanov, O. Yevlakhov and D. Shostakovich, to whom many of his works were dedicated.

Schubert, G. Mahler, M. I. Glinka, A. S. Dargomyzhsky, M. P. Musorgsky, P. I. Tchaikovski.
