Australian conductor Vladimir Fanshil is the Artistic Director of the Debut to Master Concert series at the St Petersburg Philharmonic. Since spring 2013, he has been the assistant of Ivan Fischer with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and the Konzerthaus Orchestra, Berlin.
In 2012, Vladimir completed his masters of Operatic/Symphonic conducting at the St Petersburg State Conservatoire. Whilst a student there he became a regular conductor of the State Hermitage Orchestra which included a cd recording and he also conducted a number of opera productions including La Traviata, Evgeny Onegin, Aida and 'The complaints book'.
His technical clarity, emotional freedom and multi-lingual skills result in moving and insightful collaborations across a broad range of repertoire.
Future projects include international expansion of the Debut to Master Concert Series to Berlin, to build on the success and experience of the Russian Project which will also continue in St Petersburg. In the 2014-15 season Vladimir will continue to work as assistant conductor to Ivan Fischer.
