Having already been showered with awards for his lively and gripping interpretations, the young Russian is considered one of the most promising of the new generation of conductors. Since 2013 he has been artistic director of both the Italian baroque ensemble “Il Pomo d’Oro”, with which he toured successfully with Joyce DiDonato, and the Nizhny Novgorod Soloists Chamber Orchestra. In 2019 he was appointed principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, where he succeeded Robin Ticciati. For his debut with the Munich Philharmonic, he continues the tradition, popular with both audience and performers, of ending the old year with Beethoven’s vision of a humanistic world. May the Götterfunken, the “joy, beautiful spark of the gods”, flare up in many human hearts!
