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.

The Ceremony of Awarding Honorary Citizenship of Cremona

November 11, 2023 | STRADIVARIfestival, Honorary Citizen of Cremona

Museo del Violino Antonio Stradivari

Cremona, Italy

It was a memorable November part of the “STRADIVARIfestival” that took place on Saturday evening in the G. Arvedi Auditorium in Cremona, which before a concert with a varied and lively program hosted the ceremony of awarding honorary citizenship to the violinist Sergej Krylov: A Muscovite by birth, he arrived in Stradivari’s homeland years ago together with his father Alexander, luthier, and mother Ludmilla, pianist.

Although his concert career took him far away, the Maestro always returned to perform in Cremona, creating bonds that made him become an adopted and now honorary citizen, as commented by the Mayor Gianluca Galimberti. I was moved by Krylov’s thanks upon receiving the honour, which he dedicated to his parents with a smile towards his mother in the room and a thought for his late father whose violin he then played during the concert.
