Vassily Sinaisky’s international career was launched in 1973 when he won the gold medal at the prestigious Karajan Competition in Berlin. His early work as assistant to the legendary Kondrashin at the Moscow Philharmonic, and his study with Ilya Musin at the Leningrad Conservatory provided him with an incomparable grounding. He has been professor in conducting at the music conservatory in St Petersburg for the past thirty years.

Sinaisky was music director and principal conductor of the Moscow Philharmonic from 1991 to 1996. He has also held the posts of chief conductor of the Latvian Symphony and principal guest conductor of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. He was appointed music director and principal conductor of the Russian State Orchestra (formerly Svetlanov’s USSR State Symphony Orchestra), a position which he held until 2002. He is chief guest conductor of the BBC Philharmonic and is a regular and popular visitor to the BBC Proms each summer. In January 2007 Sinaisky took over as principal conductor of the Malmö Symphony Orchestra in Sweden. His appointment formed part of an ambitious development plan for the orchestra which resulted in hugely successful projects both in Sweden and further afield. In September 2009 he was appointed a ‘permanent conductor’ at the Bolshoi in Moscow (a position shared with four other conductors).
