He played all compositions on hearing; sometimes even it was necessary to change original tonalities because of the limited range of the instrument. In 1932 in Sverdlovsk there held Olympiad of children's amateur performances. Vladimir has participated there with great success - he became the winner, and in the award the organizing committee of Olympiad has granted his treasured desire, - to him have bought the new instrument.

One of members of the commission, the chief of school of younger air-experts, was the bayan player and, having found out, that Kuznetsov the excellent bayan player, has taken him to itself in Oranienbaum. Once during trip for purchase of an accordion in Tallinn, Vladimir has met with familiar of Ensemble of songs and dancings of RSFSR which has informed him that the set of bayan players in new ensemble is made under the direction of I.O. Dunaevsky. The idea on work in this ensemble did not leave Vladimir. Soon he started service in the Central ensemble of navy fleet (or as it then named, Ensemble of five seas).

Kuznetsov was marked by several military awards, including the award of the Red Star by which the musician was awarded for active concert activity by the ships and bases of Northern fleet.
