About group

The musicAeterna Orchestra is one of the world’s most in-demand ensembles that constantly pushes the boundaries of its creative powers. MusicAeterna was founded in 2004 in Novosibirsk, Russia, by conductor Teodor Currentzis.

From 2011 to 2019, musicAeterna was the resident orchestra at Perm Opera at the time when Teodor Currentzis was the Artistic Director of the theatre. In 2019, musicAeterna embarked on a new phase of its development as privately sponsored independent institution and moved to St. Petersburg, where its headquarters are now located.

The orchestra includes musicians from 20 Russian cities and 12 countries: Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Belarus, Qazaqstan and others. It is one of the few ensembles able to perform music pieces of different genres and eras. Its repertoire encompasses world-famous old music masterpieces, works from the 19th and 20th century, and experimental contemporary compositions.

The musicAeterna orchestra regularly tours worldwide with performances on the biggest stages such as the Berlin Philharmonic, Philharmonie de Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus, Elbphilharmonie, Baden-Baden Festspielhaus, La Scala Milan, the Madrid Auditorio, The Shed New York and Royal Albert Hall London. It has a long-standing relationship with prestigious international festivals such as the Salzburg Festspiele, Lucerne festival, RUHRtriennale, Klara Festival and Aix-en-Provence festival. Teodor Currentzis and musicAeterna collaborate with the biggest names in stage directing such as Robert Wilson, Romeo Castellucci and Peter Sellars.
