Biography
Santtu-Matias Rouvali

The 2022–23 season marks Santtu-Matias Rouvali’s second year as principal conductor of London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, and he continues as chief conductor of Gothenburg Symphony, alongside his longstanding chief conductor and artistic director position with Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, close to his home in Finland.

In the summer of 2022 he made his BBC Proms debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra, performing the European premiere of Missy Mazzoli’s new violin concerto, Procession, with Jennifer Koh as soloist, alongside selections from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. Throughout this season, he continues his relationships with top-level orchestras across Europe, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, and Munich Philharmonic orchestras; in the US he returns to the New York Philharmonic. He works with soloists including Víkingur Ólafsson, Nemanja Radulović, Yuja Wang, Nicola Benedetti, Behzod Abduraimov, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Alice Sara Ott, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Vadim Gluzman, Randall Goosby, and Vilde Frang.

As well as concerts in London and the rest of the UK, Rouvali and the Philharmonia embark on a tour to Italy in September 2022, with music by Prokofiev and Sibelius. This is the first of many touring highlights this season with the Philharmonia, including trips to Spain, Germany, and Hungary.

Rouvali continues to build his discography, both adding to Gothenburg Symphony’s impressive legacy, and also recording with his orchestras in London and at home in Tampere. With Gothenburg, in January 2019 he released a celebrated first disc of an ambitious Sibelius cycle, pairing the Symphony No.1 with the early tone poem En saga. The album won the Gramophone Editor’s Choice award, the Choc de Classica, a prize from the German Record Critics, and the French Diapason d’Or “Decouverte.” In February 2020 they released the second volume, featuring Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2 and King Christian II, which has also been honored with a Choc de Classica award. In 2020 his first CD with the Philharmonia — a live recording of selections from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake — was released by Signum Records. This was followed by a live recording of Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5, released in early 2021. With the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and violinist Baiba Skride he has recorded concertos by Nielsen, Sibelius, Bernstein, Korngold, and Rózsa on the Orfeo label.
