STEFANOS TSIALIS HAS BEEN THE CHIEF CONDUCTOR AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF THE ATHENS STATE ORCHESTRA SINCE 2014.
In his five years in office, despite difficult circumstances, he has managed to increase audiences by more than 60 per cent. For some seasons now, the ASO has been repeatedly collaborating with some of the most illustrious musicians of our time, thus demonstrating its strongly risen quality. These include Vladimir Fedoseyev, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Christoph Eschenbach, Martha Argerich, Leonidas Kavakos, Maxim Vengerov and Elisabeth Leonskaya whereas concerts of the orchestra are regularly transmitted by the German Broadcasting Corporation. In 2020 two recordings with works by Nikos Skalkottas performed by the ASO under his batton will be released by NAXOS.
