Osmo Vänskä

Music Director of the Minnesota Orchestra for 15 years, Osmo Vänskä has led the orchestra on five major European tours, as well as historic trips to Cuba in May 2015 and South Africa in August 2018 as part of the world-wide celebration of Nelson Mandela’s Centenary. Other key highlights include the complete recordings of Sibelius and Beethoven symphony cycles - winning a Grammy Award in 2014 for “Best Orchestral Performance” (Sibelius symphonies 1 and 4), and the forthcoming cycle of Mahler symphonies, of which one disc already garnered a Grammy nomination in 2018.

In great demand as a guest conductor, in 2018/19 he has re-invitations to the Chicago and New World symphonies and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and returns to China working with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, and the China, Hangzhou and Hong Kong Philharmonic orchestras. In Europe he makes his regular appearances with Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and works with Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Netherlands Radio and London Philharmonic orchestras, and Iceland Symphony Orchestra, where he has been Principal Guest Conductor since 2014.

A distinguished recording artist, primarily for the BIS label, his most recent recordings are of Mahler’s Symphonies no. 2, 5 and 6, with the Minnesota Orchestra.

Vänskä has been appointed as the new Music Director at Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, starting in January 2020 and extending for three seasons.
