The Britten-Shostakovich Festival Orchestra is a unique organisation that offers young musicians of conservatoire age in the UK and Russia a rare shared cultural experience. Originally born out of a joint initiative celebrating various artistic and scientific disciplines, the Orchestra is expected to continue and develop as a regular annual feature in the musical calendars of both countries.
The Orchestra’s Artistic Director is Jan Latham-Koenig, the first British-born conductor to have ever held a senior titled position at a Russian opera company, at Novaya Opera. He will be joined by Siberian born pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, one of the most exciting young artists performing today.
