The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra is truly remarkable for its integrity – the ensemble is very thorough, sound colors carefully crafted, almost aristocratic.
 The Times

The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra is one of the cornerstones of the professional music culture of our northern neighbors. Founded in 1927 at the Finnish Broadcasting Corporation, the orchestra is still an active commissioner and recorder of new music. A glorious pleiad of Finnish conductors have been operating as a creative conductor of the orchestra: Toivo Haapanen, Nils-Eric Fougstedt, Paavo Berglund, Okko Kamu, Leif Segerstam, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Sakari Oramo, and Hannu Lintu.

Russian violin virtuoso Nikita Borisoglebsky is a prominent violin artist of the new generation. He is praised as a deep musical thinker. Borisoglebsky, with his elegant way of making music and impeccable technique, has won the highest awards at the international violin competitions named after Tchaikovsky, Monte Carlo, Joseph Joachim, David Oistrakh, Fritz Kreisler, Queen Elisabeth, and Sibelius.

Stanislav Kotshanovsky was born and educated in St. Petersburg and has become one of the brightest young conductors in Russia today. Kotshanovsky has extensive knowledge and experience in both symphonic and opera repertoire, having worked at the Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg and as the chief conductor of the Russian State Safonov Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra. Today, Stanislav Kotshanovsky is in the focus of  attention for orchestras and opera houses worldwide.
