The Ural Philharmonic Orchestra with its chief conductor and artistic director Dmitry Liss will be awarded the Russian Music Critics' Prize (Associacija muzykal'nyh kritikov) 2020. With this award, the jury pays special tribute to the pioneering concert programs of the 2019/20 season, including sensational performances of Messiaen's Turangalîla Symphony and Hans Werner Henze's oratorio Das Floß der Medusa.
This is yet another occasion to send special congratulations to Ekaterinburg, in addition to the recent two special reasons for celebration there: Dmitry Liss celebrated his 60th birthday as well as his 25th anniversary as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra. Since 1995, he has been shaping the orchestra, which is based in Ekaterinburg on the border between Europe and Asia, into an excellent and versatile ensemble, and has established its role as a musical ambassador with international appeal.
