The conductor Vladimir Jurowski was trained first at the music school and later at the conservatory music school in Moscow. In 1990 he came to Germany, where he continued his studies at the conservatories in Dresden and Berlin. In 1995 he made his debut at the Irish Wexford Festival with Rimsky-Korsakov's "Mainacht" and in 1996 at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden with "Nabucco". His subsequent positions include First Kapellmeister of the Komische Oper Berlin (1997-2001) and Music Director of Glyndebourne Festival Opera (2001-2013).

He appears regularly at music festivals in London, Berlin, Dresden, Lucerne, Schleswig-Holstein and Grafenegg.

Vladimir Jurowski has suspended performances in Russia since February 2022. Ukrainian works are and remain part of his repertoire, as are the works of Russian composers. The joint CD recordings of Vladimir Jurowski and the RSB began in 2015 with Alfred Schnittke's Symphony No. 3, followed by works by Britten, Hindemith, Strauss, Mahler and again Schnittke. Vladimir Jurowski has received many awards for his achievements, including numerous international recording prizes. In 2016, he received an Honorary Doctorate of the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award for Conductor of the Year from the hands of the present King Charles III. In 2020, Vladimir Jurowski's work as Artistic Director of the George Enescu Festival was honoured by the Romanian President with the Order of Cultural Merit.
