Valentin Uryupin, winner of the 8th International Conductor’s Competition Sir Georg Solti in 2017, is an exceptional talent: not only is he a celebrated conductor, but as a clarinettist he has performed worldwide and won more than twenty international competitions. In the face of his numerous conducting engagements, both in the opera house and concert hall, his solo career has started to take more of a back seat. However, Valentin Uryupin occasionally appears in play-conduct concerts in the dual role of clarinettist and conductor.

Since 2011, Valentin Uryupin has been a regular conductor of the MusicAeterna orchestra at the Perm Opera, which was founded in 2004 by Teodor Currentzis, and he has subsequently impressed audiences with numerous international guest performances. He has been Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the Rostov-on-Don Symphony Orchestra since 2015, and regularly gives concerts at the Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre, the Evgeny Svetlanov Russian State Academic Symphony Orchestra and the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra. Guest appearances have taken him to the Teatro Real in Madrid, the Athens Opera, the SWR Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra Dublin, the George Enescu Philharmonic in Bucharest, the Janacec Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tapiola Sinfonietta and the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi. 

Valentin Uryupin started the 2019/20 season with his debut at the Bregenz Festival, where he conducted Tchaikovsky's opera Eugene Onegin.  With Sergei Prokofiev's Love for the Three Oranges in the production by Axel Ranisch, a further debut production follows at the Stuttgart State Opera. Guest conducting engagements have also lead him to the Tyrolean Festival Erl, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, the Japan Century Orchestra Osaka, the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, the Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen, the Philharmonie Zuidnederland and the Orchestra of the Teatro Communale di Bologna. He is also a guest at the Bonn opera, together with the Russian National Youth Orchestra and Lars Vogt.

The conductor’s repertoire includes over thirty operas and ballets as well as a wide spectrum of orchestral music, including many contemporary works by composers such as John Adams, Gija Kantscheli, Henri Dutilleux, Jörg WIdmann and Kusma Bodrow.

Valentin Uryupin graduated from the Moscow Conservatory as a clarinet player (2009) and conductor (2012). His teachers include conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky and clarinettist Evgeny Petrov; Uryupin has also worked as an assistant conductor to Valery Gergiev and Vladimir Jurowski.

Douglas and Uryupin were both alive to the contrasts in the work in what was a vibrant partnership., Keith Bruce, 15/10/2018

From the familiar opening Waltz, rousing and full-blooded, the tone was set for a performance of vigour and verve, as conductor Valentin Uryupin flailed, puppet-on-a-string-like, wringing every last drop of emotion from the orchestra through the Nocturne’s tender string sections, the celebratory Mazurka, the beautiful, sweeping Romance and through to the frenetic but controlled mayhem of the finale – Galop., Jude Clark, 12/10/2018

Hearing the Russian State Symphony Orchestra perform Shostakovich’s iconic fifth symphony under the phenomenally-talented Valentin Uryupin, was an intensely-moving, tremendously-exciting, unforgettable experience. Uryupin graciously offered the audience a genteel encore of An English Melody -- just exactly what was needed to bring down the collective pulse of the exhilarated audience who had clapped and cheered and stamped their feet till Uryupin had to come back on stage no fewer than four times., Halina Boniszewska, 7/10/2018

[…] the programme had a Russian theme, with Prokofiev’s Suite from the film music for Lieutenant Kijé and the Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5. Both pieces had an unquestionably authentic and masterful interpreter in the young Russian conductor Valentin Uryupin.
Rheinpfalz Pfälzer Tageblatt, Karl Georg Berg, 04/12/2017
