Vasily Petrenko

Biography

Born: 1976; St. Petersburg, Russia  
At only age 29, Vasily Petrenko was named principal conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, one of England's more important orchestras. With a three-year contract for that post beginning in the fall of 2006, Petrenko has quickly risen using two methods: the modern technique of winning competitions and the old-fashioned manner of honing his skills in a theater orchestra.

Petrenko's education began at the St. Petersburg Capella Boys

He took first prize in the 1997 Shostakovich Choral Conducting Competition in St. Petersburg, second prize in the 2003 Prokofiev Conducting Competition in St. Petersburg, and first prize in the 2004 Cadaques International Conducting Competition in Spain.

During this time -- specifically from 1994-1997 -- Petrenko served as resident conductor of the St. Petersburg State Opera and Ballet Theater, where he developed a personal repertory of more than 30 operas. During later seasons Petrenko conducted many key orchestras in Russia, including the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and the Moscow Philharmonic. Since 1994 Petrenko has also been chief conductor of the State Academy Orchestra of St. Petersburg, a post he concurrently held with his Liverpool assignment.

In the late 1990s Petrenko found time for increasing guest-conducting apperances, initially with Russian orchestras, and at the turn of the millennium with many secondary European orchestras (BBC Philharmonic, Swedish Radio, Gothenburg, Barcelona, and the like). He did not abandon opera, appearing with such companies as the Hamburg State Opera and La Monnaie in Brussels, mainly in Russian repertory. Read less
