Born in Moscow in 1979, Dmitri Jurowski comes from a Russian musical family. His grandfather Vladimir was a well-known composer, while his father Michail and his brother Vladimir, who is seven years older, are conductors as well. Dmitri Jurowski began his musical career playing cello. He made his debut as opera conductor in the 2004-05 season in a production of Prokofiev’s The Love for Three Oranges, which was performed on 23 different stages throughout Italy. Dmitri Jurowski has since appeared as guest artist at numerous opera houses. He has conducted Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Golden Cockerel at the Komische Oper Berlin, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at the Bavarian Staatsoper, and Prokofiev’s Betrothal in a Monastery at the Palau de les Arts in Valencia. Jurowski has been engaged by the Deutsche Oper Berlin for Giordano’s André Chenier, by the Wexford Festival in Ireland for Dvořák’s Rusalka, and by the Monte Carlo Opera for Tchaikovsky’s Pique Dame. Dmitri Jurowski has developed a wide-ranging concert repertory, which he performs with such orchestras as the Dresden Philharmonic, the Residentie Orchestra of The Hague, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, and the Munich Radio Orchestra.
