London's BBC Symphony Announces New Principal Guest Conductor

The BBC Symphony Orchestra has announced the appointment of Finnish conductor Dalia Stasevska as its new Principal Guest Conductor

The BBC Symphony Orchestra, in London, has this week announced the appointment of Finnish conductor Dalia Stasevska as its new Principal Guest Conductor - effective from July 2019.

A graduate of the Royal Swedish Academy and the Sibelius Academy, Dalia is a former Assistant Conductor to Esa-Pekka Salonen and Paavo Järvi and has recently led performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony and the Philharmonia Orchestra.

The 33-year-old, who has only been conducting professionally for the past 4 years, will become the youngest person and first woman to be awarded a titled conducting position with the orchestra.

“I’m looking so much forward to this new exciting journey ... there's something about British orchestras - a solid warm sound, a virtuosity and the sheer range of what you play,” Dalia has said.

“I am particularly happy that Finnish conductors keep inspiring London musicians into permanent artistic partnerships,” Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo has said.
