Born in 1988, Maxim Emelyanychev studied in Nizhny Novgorod and at the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, where he studied conducting with Gennady Rozhdestvensky, and piano and harpsichord with Maria Uspenskaya.

He made his conducting debut at the age of twelve and in 2013 became Chief Conductor of the Nizhny Novgorod Soloists Chamber Orchestra and Chief Conductor of Il Pomo d’Oro. He was appointed Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in 2019, appearing at the BBC Proms, Edinburg International Festival, and across Europe and the US.

In addition to numerous productions with Il Pomo d’Oro, his opera engagements include Don Giovanni in Seville, Die Enführung aus Serail in Zurich, Rinaldo at Glyndebourne, Agrippina for the Royal Opera, La clemenza di Tito in Geneva and Le nozze di Figaro in Toulouse.

Additional highlights include appearances with London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonie Luxembourg, Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. Recent debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin have led to re-engagement to both orchestras in 2023 and 2024.

2022/2023 plans include debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker and appearances with the Czech, New Japan, Bergen, Rotterdam and Munich Philharmonic orchestras.

Recordings include two Gramophone Award-winning discs with Joyce DiDonato, an award-winning disc of piano sonatas by Mozart, a highly praised disc of Symphony No. 9 by Schubert with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and piano-violin sonatas by Brahms with violinist Aylen Pritchin. Maxim Emelyanychev and Il Pomo d’Oro will include Violin Concerto No. 3 by Mozart with Aylen Pritchin in their complete album of works by composer.

In 2019 he received the Newcomer Award at the International Opera Awards.
