Biography

Founded in 1989, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra is one of the leading orchestras in the capital today. Since its inception, the orchestra became an active participant in the musical life of Moscow, having performed under famous Russian and foreign conductors: Vladimir Ziva, Arnold Katz, Sergey Stadler, I. Golovchin among them, and with outstanding soloists such as Yuri Bashmet, Victor Tretiakov, Vadim Repin, Alexander Knyazev and Alexander Rudin.

The Moscow Symphony Orchestra is well known in Russia and abroad. The Orchestra has successfully toured in United States, Japan, South Korea and Western Europe.

Aside from extensive concert programs the orchestra is recognized for its outstanding recordings. Recordings of “The Snow of Kilimanjaro” and “Five Fingers” entered the 2001 top ten recordings of the year in “The Economist” magazine. The recording of the symphonies by Italian composer Malipiero was named “Disk of the Month” by US magazine “CD Review” and became the winner of the “Diapason d’Or” prize.

The Moscow Symphony Orchestra has a long tradition of participating in charity projects, such as concerts for the Ronald McDonald Children’s Foundation for disabled children, charity concerts for the Russian Medical Doctors` Association, and a special concert commemorating the Memorial Day of the Genocide of the Armenian People. Now in its 5th year, the MSO along with the orchestra’s General sponsor “Nestle” and state museum “Archangelskoe” began a series of outdoor summer concerts with all the proceeds going towards the reconstruction of Archangelskoe Palace.
