The Siberian State Symphony Orchestra (SSSO) dates back to 1977. Very quickly in its early history, while led by eminent Soviet conductor Ivan Shpiller, The SSSO won a reputation as one of the best orchestras in the former Soviet Union. The SSSO has worked with conductors such as Leonard Slatkin, Dmitri Jurowski, Gintaras Rinkevicius and Vladislav Chernushenko among others, and has performed regularly with soloists Mikhail Pletnev, Vadim Repin, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Lazar Berman, Igor Oistrakh, Denis Matsuev, Rudolf Buchbinder, and Nikolai Lugansky, to name a few.
After the fall of the Iron Curtain, The SSSO started touring internationally to critical acclaim.
In 1993, by special Decree of the Russian Ministry of Culture, The SSSO was awarded the title of State Orchestra, and in 2009 received the venerable status of a Particularly Valuable Object of Cultural Heritage.
In 2015 Vladimir Lande became The SSSO’s new Artistic Director and Chief Conductor. Since then it has started successful new collaborations with international recording labels such as Naxos, Delos and Parma Records, and its televised concerts became available for online streaming. The SSSO and its new Artistic Director are not only maintaining high performing standards, but also dedicate a significant amount of time to their mission as educators in the Central Siberia region.
