Omtale

The Chamber orchestra of the Vologda Philharmonic Society was founded in 1990. Its extensive repertoire includes works of every epoch and style. One of the Philharmonic’s large-scale projects is the series of concerts “An Anthology of the Instrumental Concert of the 17th-21st Centuries”. Its participants included many renowned musicians from Russia and abroad, such as V. Tonkha, M. Yashvili, D. Kramer, A. Shilkloper, A. Mitenev, A. Gorbachev, C. Menicker, A. Buzlov, A. Bayeva, soloists from “Concertino”, “Petropolitana”, “Musicadacamera” and other ensembles.

The Orchestra has toured many Russian and foreign cities: Veliky Novgorod, Pskov, Petrozavodsk, Moscow etc.; it has also been on concert tours abroad - in Concord, Manchester, Londonderry, Helsinki. It took part in international festivals in the U.S.A., Finland and Bulgaria, and has been a constant participant of musical events in Russia, such as The Festival of Slavic Culture and Languages (Veliky Novgorod), The Pushkin Festival (Pskov), Winter Dreams, Russian North, The Gavrilin International Festival (Vologda).

In 2003 the Orchestra became prizewinner of the State Award of the Vologda Oblast in the field of art and culture.

Alexander Loskutov graduated from Petrozavodsk State Conservatoire named after A.K.Glazunov, where he studied in the class of Prof. K.I.Veksler. Since 1990 he has been director, art director and chief conductor of the Vologda Philharmonic’s Chamber orchestra. Under his leadership the Philharmonic prepared over 300 programmes, with a number of works performed in Russia for the first time - those by P. Tsylher, A. Lourier, V. Silvestrov, as well as scores of the Vologda authors M. Bonfeld, M. Gogolin and V. Vakhrushev.

Alexander Loskutov’s work as orchestral conductor runs parallel to his successful participation in the orchestra’s programmes. He performed as a soloist and an ensemble member during the concert tours in Poland, the Czech Republic, the U.S.A. and Finland. In 2013 he became laureate of the International Contest in Pietro Argento, Italy. Alexander Loskutov is the author of major musical-educational projects for gifted young people of Russia’s North-West and for grant holders of the New Names Fund. He is the organizer of the contests of young performers “Charming Strings” and “Let’s Play and Sing Together”, and one of the initiators of the first musical festival “Young Classics” for students.

In 2002 Alexander Loskutov was awarded the title of “Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation”.

Povilas Syrrist-Gelgota har studert i Vilnius, Paris, London og Norges musikkhøgskole. Hans uvanlig brede repertoar spenner seg fra klassisk og samtids musikk, til litauisk folkemusikk og tango. Han er en aktiv kammermusiker som har spilt over 400 kammerkonserter og har deltatt på mange internasjonale festivaler i Norge og utlandet .

Povilas har ved flere anledninger vært solist med ulike orkestre som Oslo Filharmoniske Orkester, Kaunas City Symphony og Fjord Cadenza festival orchestra. I sesongen 2016/2017 spiller Povilas solo med Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, Kharkiv Philharmonic, Minsk Kammerorkester, Vilnius City Chamber Orchestra og Szczecin Philharmonic.

Povilas er veldig glad i å presentere litauisk musikk i Norge og norsk musikk i Litauen. I 2010 ble han tildelt en medalje fra den litauiske ambassaden i Norge for sitt bidrag til kulturell utveksling mellom disse to landene. I 2012 fikk Povilas Mariss Jansons stipend av Oslo-Filharmonien.
