New chief conductor in Scotlandmain
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra has just named Maxim Emelyanychev as its next principal conductor.
He succeeds Robin Ticciati, who went on to bigger things in Berlin.
A student of Gennady Rozhdestvensky in Moscow, Emelyanychev, 30, is currently conducting Joyce DiDonato and Il Pomo d’Oro in a cross-Europe tour. Joyce says: ‘I wish Maxim every success in his new appointment with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. I am certain that he will bring a heartfelt, adventurous, monumental presence and vision.’
