Latvian National Symphony OrchestraChief conductor 1976 - 1989

The Latvian National Symphony Orchestra (LNSO) is one of the cornerstones of Latvian culture � the animator of achievements in musical creativity, keeper and polisher of classical treasures and a source of thoughtful relaxation. Sonorous, balanced and multicoloured � that is the LNSO today. Its composition has been noticeably renewed with many new musicians; the intensity of playing together, musical activity and joy has increased The invitation of Vassily Sinaisky (1975�1987) brought new breath, musical gravitas and greatness. This charismatic and well-educated musician (alongside conducting, he had also studied the piano and musicology) integrated smoothly into the orchestra�s best traditions often creating real music festivals for everyone (including expansive vocal-symphonic compositions as well as the great works of Johannes Brahms and Gustav Mahler). In addition, Sinaisky was responsible for introducing many, many Latvian works to the concert scene, primarily the monumental symphonies of J?nis Ivanovs. On the best occasions he really did �set fire� to the orchestra and audience.
