PROGRAM NOTESOne of Russia’s most gifted conductors, Arkady Leytush has directed orchestras worldwide to great acclaim. A conductor in the “Grand Russian Tradition”, Leytush leads dynamic performances that have made him an audience favorite. His artistry is known throughout the former Soviet Union, but it was not until 1994 that he gained recognition in the United States when on a week’s notice he made a stunning debut with the Detroit Symphony, replacing Yuri Temirkanov. Since 1980, Arkady Leytush has conducted such orchestras as the New Jersey Symphony, Ballet Theatre of Russia, New World Symphony, Detroit Symphony, New York Chamber Symphony, Brooklyn Philharmonic, Orquestra Filarmonica de Buenos Aires, Orquestra Nacional do Porto, Moscow Philharmonic and St. Petersburg Philharmonic. He is currently the Principal Guest Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, Music Director of the Interface Committee of Remembrance and Music Director of the Nathan Rakhlin International Festival in the Ukraine. Arkady Leytush has created numerous transcriptions and orchestrations of music by great composers, including Albéniz, J.S. Bach, Borodin, Buxtehude, Chopin, Cui, Czerny, Glazunov, Liadov, Mussorgsky, Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov and Shostakovich. Maestro Leytush received his training at the Glinka State Conservatory in choral conducting and at the Mussorgsky State Conservatory in orchestral conducting. He studied with Kirill Kondrashin and Gennady Rozhdestvensky, among many others, and is currently Professor of Conducting at Long Island Conservatory.
