In his first term as Music Director of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia Dima Slobodeniouk's impact has been felt for his deeply informed and intelligent artistic leadership. Combining his native Russian roots with his years of musical study in Finland he draws on the powerful musical strengths of these countries he currently makes his homes both in La Coruña and Helsinki.

Slobodeniouk has recently appeared in Spain not only with his own orchestra but both with RTVE and Orquesta Nacional de España orchestras in Madrid, the latter with Joshua Bell as soloist.

In La Coruña he has introduced audiences to Spanish and world premieres of native composers Federico Mosquera and Fernado Buide, and Sebastian Fagerlund's violin concerto, Kalevi Aho's percussion concerto and Hans Abrahamsen's song cycle Let me tell you.
