Stanislav Kochanovsky

“The greatest revelation of the evening was the guest conductor, young Russian Stanislav Kochanovsky…. Obviously very much at home with his own nation’s music, he conducted with musicality, technical proficiency, clarity and much musicality, achieving the best both from the music and from the orchestra itself.”


Having recently made an exceptionally successful debut at Verbier Festival, Stanislav begins the 2017/18 season with a new production of Eugene Onegin at Opernhaus Zurich before making his Australian debut with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Looking further ahead, highlights include concerts with Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Orchestre National de Belgique, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, RTE National Symphony Orchestra (Dublin) and Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.

From 2010 to 2015, Stanislav was Chief Conductor of the State Safonov Philharmonic Orchestra. His activity already includes over 50 symphonic programmes, 5 festivals and 7 opera productions. Highlights include Scriabin’s Prometheus: The Poem of Fire and Symphony No.3 The Divine Poem, a Rachmaninov cycle which included a new production of Aleko and Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde. In 2007, Stanislav began an intensive collaboration with the Mikhailovsky Theatre which included over sixty opera and ballet performances as well as a London Coliseum debut.

In recent years, Stanislav has conducted new opera productions of Pique Dame at Opernhaus Zurich, Iolanta at Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Prince Igor with Dutch National Opera and Boris Godunov at Korean National Opera. As a guest conductor, Stanislav regularly performs at the Mariinsky Theatre, and has more than thirty operas in his repertoire.
