Vladimir Andropov, conductor

Vladimir Andropov was invited to join the Bolshoi Theater company in Moscow after serving for several years as Principal Conductor of the Byelorussian State Symphony Orchestra and the Byelorussian State Radio and Television Orchestra. He made his Bolshoi Theater conducting debut with Ravel's opera L'Heure espagnole in 1978. His success led to a permanent conducting post at the Bolshoi Theater. He has conducted such productions at the Bolshoi Theater as Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov, Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin and Iolanta, Bizet's Carmen, Rimsky-Korsakov's The Tsar's Bride and many others. Since 1978, Vladimir Andropov has held the post of Artistic Director of the Bolshoi Theater Wind Orchestra which, under his leadership, has grown to become nationally acknowledged as one of the finest wind ensembles.

Vladimir Andropov appeared as a guest conductor with such orchestras as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, Moscow Symphony and the Russian State Radio and Television Symphony. In recent years he has made hugely successful guest appearances with many leading orchestras of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

Vladimir Andropov has conducted both the Bolshoi Theater Orchestra and the Bolshoi Theater Wind Orchestra on many of their tours to Germany, the United States, Japan, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, and Romania.
