Since graduating from the Sibelius-Academy Sauli Zinovjev has been focusing mainly on orchestral music with commissions and performances by distinguished orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouworkest, Philharmonic Orchestras of Munich, Oslo, Gothenburg and Helsinki, Finnish and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestras, Bamberger Symfoniker, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Tokyo Metropolitan Orchestra and Tapiola Sinfonietta.

Zinovjev composes music that conveys vast emotions. The kind of music which also made him a composer. Until the age of sixteen, he played the guitar in a rock band and skateboarded. Then he saw a clip online with György Cziffra performing Liszt.

“It was as if wallpaper had been torn off the wall revealing a window to an open landscape. The euphoria and the virtuoso performance left a fanatic impression on me. To have the ability to inject so much art into a single moment. The entire spectrum of life.”

Zinovjev uses classical music to make his view of the world intelligible. To convey it – life – to others.
