Marius Stravinsky is Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Karelia Philharmonic Orchestra. A British citizen, he was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan, in 1979. He is bi-lingual in English and Russian, as may be gathered from his musical education. As a violinist he attended the Central Moscow Music School from 1985 and in 1989 went to the Yehudi Menuhin School. He won a top music scholarship to Eton College in 1992.
He attended the Royal Academy of Music and Royal College of Music from 1997 to 2002. He was Assistant Conductor of Moscow State Symphony Orchestra until 2004, when he accepted the post of Resident Conductor of Helikon Opera in Moscow. He was assistant to Claudio Abbado in the Don Giovanni production in 1998 in Aix-en-Provence. He has guest conducted top orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Moscow Philharmonic, St Petersburg Chamber Orchestra, Queensland Symphony, and the State Orchestras of Lithuania and Belarus.
"This is a grand romantic British symphony here receiving its first fully professional recording….an impressive major piece." - Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International (Blower - Symphony)
"Its fascination and enthralling power lies in its diaphanous scoring, which is luminously put across in this performance" - Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International (Howell - Lamia)
"a great romp of a piece in which he has the orchestra turning metaphorical cartwheels and somersaults" - Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International (Holbrooke - Variations on 'The Girl I Left Behind Me')
