National Philharmonic of Russia

Vladimir Spivakov,
Artistic Director & Principal Conductor

“The National Philharmonic of Russia does its artistic heritage proud….Heeding the clear vision of Spivakov, its members play with a cohesiveness and insight that belies their short history, as if they have been doing this forever.
Newsday

“The Shostakovich bubbled and popped in all the right places, and the Tchaikovsky brimmed…with visceral orchestral excitement.”
Boston Globe

"...the National Philharmonic of Russia founded by Vladimir Spivakov has all capacities necessary to become the best orchestra in Russia. It is young in age and in spirit, it shows no routine, it displays not solely the top-class professional skills, but also the rare ability, almost vanished now, to enjoy the music, to plunge into it, to create it in front of the audience."
Rossiyskaia gazeta

About

Founded in 2003 at the initiative of the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Ministry of Culture, the National Philharmonic of Russia has quickly become a musical symbol of the new Russia.

Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Vladimir Spivakov has assembled some of Russia's instrumental elite into an ensemble combining technical virtuosity with a rare capacity to become immersed in the music and draw the audience into that experience.

Residing at the spectacular new Moscow International Arts Center, the orchestra has hosted some of the world's greatest artists. The orchestra completed two critically acclaimed tours of the US, first in 2007 and again in 2009.
