Guildhall Symphony Orchestra

Conducted by Vassily Sinaisky

Guildhall Symphony Orchestra musicians

Russian conductor Vassily Sinaisky leads Guildhall musicians through Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony and Dvořák’s spirited Eighth Symphony.

Vassily Sinaisky brings the full weight of authority of the Russian conducting tradition to work with Guildhall students in one of the greatest and most sombre of Russian works – Shostakovich’s devastating Tenth Symphony, written shortly after the death of Stalin. The mood is offset by Dvořák’s effervescent Eighth Symphony.

The distinguished conductor holds the position of Conductor Emeritus of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and from 2010 to 2013 was Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow.

Presented by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
