Biography

Ensemble XXI became the first international orchestra in Russia with both foreign and Russian membership. Irish Conductor Lygia O’Riordan and Finnish Violinist Pia Siirala founded the Ensemble in 1989, after completing their studies at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. Ensemble XXI is recognised in its foundation, membership and activity as living proof of the capacity of music to bring together people of diverse backgrounds and origins on a plane of understanding which recognises no borders.

The orchestra has played at venues ranging from the Vienna Konzerthaus to the Sydney Opera House, and has even touched on the exotic - a snow and ice-bound reindeer herders’ camp above the Arctic Circle
Of particular importance is the orchestra’s ongoing work to highlight the ancient music of Russia’s indigenous communities in the Arctic Circle. The orchestra records for the EnsembleGram label.
