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.)

  • Dima Slobodeniouk


    Dima Slobodeniouk has become one of the most sought-after conductors of his generation, praised for his exhilarating approach and energetic leadership by musicians and audiences alike. He works with the world’s foremost orchestras, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and NHK Symphony Orchestra, in addition to the New York Philharmonic.

    In the 2023–24 season Slobodeniouk has been invited to make his debuts with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC, and Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra. He returns to the London Philharmonic, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, NDR Elbphilharmonie, and Berlin Radio Symphony orchestras. He appears with the Vienna Symphony and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, and returns to the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, where he served as music director until 2022. He opened the 2023–24 season with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Tanglewood, returns to lead the ensemble later in the season, and appears with the Seattle Symphony next spring.

    An acclaimed recording artist, his recent recordings include Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Cello Concerto with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Nicolas Altstaedt on Alpha, for which he received an ICMA Award. On BIS, he released an album of music inspired by the Finnish folk epic Kalevala, the works of Kalevi Aho with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra (2018 BBC Music Magazine Award), and another featuring Aho’s Sieidi and Fifth Symphony. For Ondine, he recorded works by Perttu Haapanen and Lotta Wennäkoski with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

    Slobodeniouk studied with the Ukrainian violinist Olga Parkhomenko at Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy, from which he graduated in 2001. There he also studied conducting with Leif Segerstam, Jorma Panula, and Atso Almila. From 2016 to 2021 he was principal conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra and artistic director of the Sibelius Festival. He was music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia from 2013 to 2022, with which he built an extensive and highly acclaimed media library of live concert recordings. A passionate believer in widening opportunity, he started a conducting initiative while at the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia, providing aspiring conductors podium time with a professional orchestra and the opportunity to work with him on selected repertoire.
