Russian Masters

Nov 17 - Nov 19


Dima Slobodeniouk conducts Tchaikovsky’s Winter Dreams, an early symphony that the composer favored over his later works. Karen Gomyo — “a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance, and intensity” (Chicago Tribune) — joins him for Shostakovich’s contemplative and fiery Violin Concerto No. 1.

(Semyon Bychkov, the originally announced conductor, is unable to appear; instead Dima Slobodeniouk will conduct in his New York Philharmonic debut.)

He works with the world’s foremost orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and NHK Symphony Orchestra.

    In the 2022–23 season Slobodeniouk has been invited to make his debuts with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Symphony, and Danish National Symphony Orchestra. He returns to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, SWR Symphonieorchester, Minnesota Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, and received re-invitations to the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and WDR Sinfonieorchester, as well as special returns to the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, where he was music director until 2022. Slobodeniouk enjoys working with soloist including Leif Ove Andsnes, Khatia Buniatishvili, Seong-Jin Cho, Kirill Gerstein, Augustin Hadelich, Barbara Hannigan, Håkan Hardenberger, Patricia Kopatchinskaya, Beatrice Rana, Baiba Skride, Yuja Wang, and Frank Peter Zimmermann.

    Slobodeniouk’s recent notable recordings include collaborations with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Nicolas Altstaedt (on Alpha) and music inspired by the Finnish folk epic, the Kalevala, (BIS). Other releases on BIS include works by Kalevi Aho with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra, which won the 2018 BBC Music Magazine Award; a later disc of Aho's Sieidi and his Fifth Symphony; as well as concert suites of music from Prokofiev’s opera The Gambler and ballet The Tale of the Stone Flower with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra. For the Ondine label, he recorded works by Perttu Haapanen and Lotta Wennäkoski with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

    Slobodeniouk was music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia from 2013 to 2022; while there he started a conducting initiative to give aspiring conductors podium time and the opportunity to work with him on select repertoire. He has also served as principal conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra from 2016 to 2021, as well as artistic director of the Sibelius Festival. Born in Moscow, Dima Slobodeniouk studied violin at the Moscow Central Music School and continued studies at Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy, where he also took up his conducting studies.
