Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra

Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra

A celebrated cultural treasure of Lithuania, the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra is widely recognised as one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras. The remarkable history of the orchestra features over a hundred performances with Mstislav Rostropovich and Lord Yehudi Menuhin; a recording of Bach’s 12 Keyboard Concertos and Haydn Concertos for Piano and Orchestra with Tatjana Nikolaeva; Beethoven’s The Creatures of Prometheus narrated by Sir Peter Ustinov and a recent recording of Vivaldi’s violin concertos with Sergej Krylov released by DG. Over the years its soloists have included Janine Jansen, Vadim Repin, Daniel Hope, Oleg Kagan, Yuri Bashmet, Misha Maisky, Natalia Gutman, David Geringas, Daniel Muller-Schott, Evgeny Kissin, Bruno Canino, Sergei Nakariakov, Alexei Ogrinchuk, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Mojka Erdmann, Avi Avital and others.

As Music Director and Conductor of the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, a position he has held since 2008, Sergej Krylov plays the dual role of soloist and conductor in a wide repertoire that ranges from the Baroque to contemporary music. His dedication to the highest professional standard and finesse of music making, as well as a constant widening of the repertoire, opened new exciting horizons in the Orchestra’s development resulting in more than 200 highly acclaimed joint performances across the world. The critics described the dynamic musical partnership between the orchestra and Sergej Krylov as “a harmonious and conspiring relationship with the orchestra”, “an absolute attunement between the violinist-conductor and the orchestra” and “the charming and aristocratic gallantry, without improper familiarity, but with confidence in each other.”

The Orchestra has toured in the Baltics and at the major European concert halls; their performances were streamed and broadcast over multiple channels and on social media.

Alexander Krylov

Alexander Krylov

Alexander Krylov (Alessandro Crillovi), often  referred to as Russian Stradivarius, was an outstanding Russian violin maker, the first Russian luthier to have graduated from the Cremona Academy with the Gold medal. The family moved to Cremona in 1989 where he built exquisite instruments highly praised by the musicians and collectors alike and taught many fine makers.

Sergej Krylov was often a “test pilot” for his father’s new creations and since 1994 he frequently plays worldwide the violin built specially for him. 


“I remember my violin since it was a piece of wood, I watched it being made. The minute I held it in my hands I knew it was my instrument – it was a very special, unique feeling.”
