Stanislav Kochanovsky is considered one of the brightest conductors heralding from Russia today. With an in-depth knowledge and experience of a wide range of symphonic and operatic repertoire, he’s receiving attention from orchestras and opera houses around the world. A regular guest of the Orchestre de Paris, the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Philharmonia London, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Russian National Orchestra and Mariinsky Theatre, his recent successful debuts include with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, NDR Elbphilharmonie, the Wiener Symphoniker, hr-Sinfonieorchester Frankfurt and Israel Philharmonic. In addition to the pillars of the classical repertoire, Kochanovsky has a strong interest in conducting rarely performed works, and works by living composers. Since his 2017 Verbier Festival debut, conducting Eugene Onegin with the Academy, he has returned almost every year.
