The National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine is one of the finest ensembles of its kind in eastern Europe. The orchestra, founded in 1918, has performed world premieres by Sergei Prokofiev, Dmitri Shostakovich, and other prestigious composers. Since 1993, the orchestra has recorded more than 100 albums, two of which were nominated for Grammy Awards.
Volodymyr Sirenko, also a native of Ukraine, has been artistic director and chief conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine since 1999. Off the stage, he is a professor of opera and symphonic conducting at the National Music Academy of Ukraine.
“... A program rich with energy and unusually adventurous placed the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine in a highly favourable light when it gave its only Sydney concert during its Australian tour... This is an orchestra with many virtues. Its strings can conjure up a vibrant songfulness; the woodwinds have a fruity, penetrating ripeness; the brass could endanger the walls of Jericho; the percussion might wake the dead...” —The Sydney Morning Herald
