Founded in 1967, The St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra was known as the Orchestra of Ancient and Modern Music until 1985. Celebrated soloists and conductors including Yuri Temirkanov, Mariss Jansons, Sviatoslav Richter and many others, have performed with the renowned orchestra. In 1988, the orchestra began holding concerts in the Mirror Hall of the famous Princes Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace in the very heart of St Petersburg. Since 1990, the orchestra has been successfully touring in China, Japan, Germany, Austria, Mexico, Spain, Finland, Norway, Sweden, France and Belgium. Its repertoire is limitless thanks to a well-considered policy of performing music of every epoch, genre and style, with particular attention afforded to the music of living composers. In 2008, American musician Vladimir Lande became the orchestra’s principal guest conductor.
