Virtuosity, finesse, expression, imagination: Dmitry Sinkovsky has everything!
Dmitry Sinkovsky possesses a rare combination of Russian virtuosity and Italian cantabilità.
Born in Moscow, Dmitry started studying violin at the age of 5. During his studies at the Moscow Conservatory he decided to also study singing to give a broader basis to his dream to become an opera conductor. His deep awareness has always been that to conduct the opera you need a profound knowledge of both instrument and voice. After his violin diploma, he also graduated in choir conducting at the Zagreb Academy under Tomislav Fačini and conducting at the isdaT in Toulouse under Sabrie Bekirova.
Electrifying virtuoso... This is how to perform baroque music.
