“Vladimir Fedoseyev graduated from Moscow’s Gnesin’s Musical Academy and Tchaikovsky Conservatory (class of Professor Leo Ginzburg) and was invited by Evgeny Mravinsky to conduct the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra. He made his opera debut also in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) in the Mariinsky Theatre.
In 1974 Vladimir Fedoseyev became artistic director and chief conductor of the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra, now known as the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra. In addition, from 1997 to 2004 he was a chief conductor of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. In recent years he has worked as a guest conductor with many of the world’s leading orchestras such as the Bayerischer Rundfunk, Köln Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Berlin Philharmonic, Zürich Tonhalle and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. He is also highly esteemed in Japan, where he was appointed a principal guest conductor of the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra in 1996. In the 2004/05 season he worked as a guest conductor with the Cleveland Orchestra and the Detroit and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras. He was also principal conductor of The Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi.
The conductor’s immense repertoire includes works from various eras, ranging from early music to contemporary pieces. Productions of operas by Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Musorgsky, Verdi, Berlioz and Janáèek conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev at opera houses in Milan, Florence, Vienna, Zürich, Paris, Bologna and other European cities invariably win high praise from the critics. His recording of Musorgsky’s opera BORIS GODUNOV, widely available on general release, has won particular acclaim.”
