Since 1988 the Orchestra has been under the baton of Valery Gergiev, a musician of the highest order and an outstanding figure in the music world. Gergiev’s arrival at the Mariinsky ushered in a new era of rapid expansion of the Orchestra’s repertoire, which now includes all the symphonies of Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Mahler, and Beethoven, the Requiems of Mozart, Verdi, and Tishchenko, and works by Stravinsky, Shchedrin, Gubaidulina, and young Russian and foreign composers. The Orchestra regularly performs symphonic programmes in Europe, America, Japan and Australia. In 2008, The Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre, under the leadership of Maestro Gergiev, was ranked in Gramophone’s Top 20 list of the world’s best orchestras.
