The Oslo Philharmonic has today announced the contract extension of Russian Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko - through until, at least the conclusion of the 2019/2020 season.

The 39 year old has served the role since 2013 - and also currently holds the Principal Conductor position with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

‘After two seasons with me at the reins, I think we have freshened up the orchestra and introduced some great music that hasn’t been heard in Oslo for many years,’ Maestro Petrenko has said, ‘… the idea is that we should always embrace the audience and be embraced in return by the audience, to be part of one large family and break down the artificial barrier between musicians on stage and the public in the hall.’
