Alexander Titov

Alexander Titov was born in St. Petersburg (Leningrad) in 1954. He graduated from the Leningrad State Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory, where he concentrated on three distinct fields: choral conducting (class of Professor A.V.Mikhailov, 1976), piano (class of Professor V.V.Gentsler, 1976), and operatic-symphonic conducting (class of Professor I.A.Musin, 1981). In 1981 he assumed the post of lecturer in opera and symphonic conducting at the St. Petersburg State Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory.

Maestro Titov began his career as assistant to conductors Gennady Rozhdestvensky and Mstislav Rostropovich, and has since become one of Russia's leading conductors. He is a regular guest-conductor of the Mariinsky Theater Orchestra (since 1991), the Scottish BBC Orchestra (since 1993), and the Bolshoi Theater Orchestra (since 2002). As principal conductor, he leads several top orchestral ensembles in St. Petersburg - including the Symphony Orchestra of St. Petersburg Philharmonia, the St. Petersburg Festival Orchestra, the St. Petersburg New Classical Orchestra, the St. Petersburg Chamber Orchestra "Canon," and the St. Petersburg Conservatory Chamber Orchestra. In all, Maestro Titov has recorded over 70 CDs, with a huge and diverse canon drawn from the classical, romantic, and contemporary periods. Among his many awards include first prize at the International Min-On Competition (Tokyo, 1988), and two distinguished theater awards - the Golden Sofit (St. Petersburg, 2001-02) and Golden Mask (St. Petersburg, 2001). He has toured widely, including in the US, Japan, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Columbia, Latvia, Portugal, and Spain.

Not surprisingly, Maestro Titov has placed particular emphasis on the symphonic, operatic, and ballet repertoires of Russian composers - including Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and Schnittke. This interest extends to works of contemporary Russian composers, as seen here at the Classical Archives in the fascinating composite opera Tsar Demain - featuring the music of no less than seven composers (V.Gaivoronsky, L.Desiatnikov, V.Nikolayev, I.Yusupova, P.Pospelov, R.Ruditsa, and D.Riabstev). We are delighted to feature a selection of this gifted and prolific conductor.
