Principal Guest Conductor of the Ural Youth Symphony Orchestra
Supervises the Ural Youth Symphony Orchestra since its foundation in 2006 and visits Yekaterinburg at least once a season. He meets with UYSO not only in our concert hall: the Russian premiere of the collective in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory took place with his participation.
Cellist, conductor, pianist, researcher of old scores, author of orchestral transcriptions of chamber works. Leads the Musica Viva Moscow Chamber Orchestra (since 1988). As a Guest Conductor, he collaborates with St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra, State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia "Evgeny Svetlanov", symphony orchestras from Norway, Finland and Turkey.
In his work, he adheres to the path of searches and experiments in line with the "pure" academic tradition. Most of his concert programmes include rarely performed music and classical hits in a new interpretation.
He was the first to present to the Moscow audiences the cello works of Karl Davydov, Antonin Kraft, Jean-Balthasar Trickleer, Johann Fazius, Robert Volkmann, Antonin Dvorak; together with Musica Viva – the works by Karl Philip Emanuel Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Antonio Salieri, Ignaz Pleyel, Jan Dussek, Karl von Dittersdorf, Joseph Haydn, Vasily Pashkevich, Alexander Alyabyev, Stepan Dyagterev, Mikhail Glinka. He combines playing a modern instrument and viola da gamba.
Alexander Rudin is a Professor of Moscow State Conservatory where he teaches chamber ensemble, believing that it is in this area that he can give students more than teaching them to play cello. He gives master classes around the world, and collaborates with youth groups as a conductor and soloist.
Since 2006, he has been supervising the Ural Youth Symphony Orchestra, and since 2016 he has been its Principal Guest Conductor.
