Kirill Karabits kicks off 2019 by making his debut this week conducting the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Conducting three concerts in Warwick, Nottingham and at London’s Barbican Centre, he leads these wonderful young players in an eclectic programme of Rick Dior, John Adams and Sibelius Symphony No. 2.
Now in his 10th season as Chief Conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, their partnership continues to be considered as one of the most exciting in the UK. Their recent performance of Mahler Symphony No. 2 to open this season was listed in the Guardian as one of the top 10 performances of 2018. They have also recently released a highly anticipated Chandos recording of Boris Lyatoshynsky Symphony No. 3; music very close to Kirill’s heart with Lyatoshynsky having taught orchestration to his father, Ivan Karabits.
The remainder of the 2018/19 season will see Kirill make his debut with the Vienna Symphoniker at the Musikverein, a return to the Deutsche Oper in Berlin for performances of Boris Godunov, and he will lead the Russian National Orchestra on a North American tour, which includes his New York debut at the Lincoln Center.
