Vladimir Kishchenko

In the orchestra since 2004

A graduate of the Glinka Novosibirsk State Conservatory, he worked at the Novosibirsk academic symphony orchestra (directed by Arnold Katz). Since 2003, he has been a member of the musicAeterna orchestra directed by Teodor Currentzis.

CAN YOU REMEMBER YOUR FIRST PERFORMANCE WITH MUSICAETERNA?
I was first exposed to musicAeterna’s performance as part of the audience. They played Vivaldi and did it with such energy that I was absolutely stunned. The performers were very young, and they gave their 100%. It was incredible. Very soon, I got a chance to join the troupe; that is when I understood why this orchestra sounds like nothing else. It all has to do with Teodor. Over my long career, I have never seen anyone else work on each measure and each sound with such precision.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL TO PERFORM TOGETHER WITH MUSICAETERNA?
I feel that we are all one. This might sound trite but I truly mean it: when you are playing in this orchestra, you sense true unity. Energy is passed from one performer to another. Of course, it is mainly Teodor giving his energy to us; but we do our best to return the favour.
WHAT DOES CREATIVE SUCCESS DEPEND ON?
There must be many ingredients to success but the main one is hard work. No matter how talented you are, you have to do a colossal amount of work on yourself: success does not simply come to you. I believe every person is talented by nature, yet only those who develop and work on their talent end up being successful.
DO YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC AT HOME?
I have a baby daughter at home, so listening to music has become not as frequent. But I love listening to classical music. When I want to relax, I go for jazz.
WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER HOBBIES?
I love taking photos. It is particularly mesmerizing to watch and photograph children when they are immersed in some sort of activity.
