The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra has today announced Soviet-born violin virtuoso Patricia Kopatchinskaja as their new 'Artistic Partner'.

Rather than appoint a traditional 'Music Director', the Minnesota-based ensemble have since 2004, elected to engage a diverse and rotating group of conductors and musicians – including Roberto AbbadoEdo de WaartChristian Zacharias, Thomas Zehetmair, Dawn Upshaw, Joshua Bell and Nicholas McGegan.

“One of the great joys of our work at the SPCO is to introduce Twin Cities audiences to sparkling and effervescent artists … Kopatchinskaja is the most ravishingly intense and virtuosic musician I have heard in a very long time,” SPCO President Bruce Coppock has said.

Ms Kopatchinskaja will begin her tenure in the 2014-2015 season.
