Born in Kiev, Markevitch moved with his family to Switzerland in 1914. Alfred Cortot discovered his musical ability and took him to Paris in 1926 for training as a composer and pianist, where he would study under Nadia Boulanger. He gained recognition in 1929 with the performance of his Concerto Grosso in Paris. Markevitch made his debut as a conductor at age 18 with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. As a conductor, Markevitch was well-respected for his interpretations of the French and Russian repertory (such as Tchaikovsky) and of twentieth-century music.

Markevitch's first wife was Kyra Nijinska, daughter of the great ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. She bore him a son, Vaslav Jr (b. 1936), before they divorced. His second wife was Donna Topazia Caetani, the only child of Don Michelangelo Caetani dei Duchi di Sermoneta and his wife, the former Cora Antinori, who ran the boutique of the Paris decorating firm Jansen. Their son, Oleg Caetani, was chief conductor and artistic director of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Australia. Topazia also bore him two daughters, Allegra (b. 1950) and Nathalie (b. 1951), and another son, Timour (1960-1962).
