LEIF SEGERSTAM  

(b 1944 )

Born in 1944, Leif Segerstam is recognised internationally as a conductor, composer, violinist and pianist. He studied at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki and The Juilliard School.

He is chief conductor emeritus of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, and holds honorary titles with the Malmö Opera, the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz. He has also been chief conductor of the Austrian and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestras and the Royal Swedish Opera, and director of the Finnish National Opera. He is currently chief conductor of the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra. He has also conducted many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, and was one of the most important ambassadors for Sibelius’s 2015 anniversary year.

Segerstam began his conducting career in the opera houses of Helsinki, Stockholm and Berlin, and has made guest appearances at international opera houses and festivals. His many recordings have been critically acclaimed, and feature works by contemporary composers as well as the complete symphonies of Mahler, Sibelius and Nielsen among many others.

Segerstam is a prolific composer, notably developing a free-pulsative style in Rosenkranz form for his later symphonies which are performed without conductor. He has written 330 symphonies to date, and regards them as a musical diary of his life. He was professor of conducting at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki. Segerstam was awarded the 1999 Nordic Council Music Prize and the Swedish Cultural Foundation’s Prize for Music in 2003. In 2004 he was given the annual Finnish State Prize for Music and in 2005 the Sibelius Medal.
