28-Year-Old Emmanuel Tjeknavorian Named New Music Director of Milan Symphony Orchestra

Vienna-based Armenian violinist and conductor Emmanuel Tjeknavorian has been appointed as the new music director of the Milan Symphony Orchestra, as announced by the Armenian Embassy in Italy.




At the youthful age of 28, Tjeknavorian, a true "child of art," boasts an impressive biography, not only as a conductor but also as a skilled violinist. The Embassy highlights his notable achievement last year when he inaugurated the season of the Philharmonic Orchestra at La Scala with maestro Riccardo Chaily.


Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, born on April 22, 1995, in Vienna, Austria, is the son of the renowned Iranian-Armenian composer and conductor, Loris Tjeknavorian. His musical journey has been marked by significant milestones, representing Austria at the Eurovision Young Musicians contest in 2012 and making history in the Fritz Kreisler Competition in September 2014, reaching the final round and securing third place. Recognizing his talent, he received the Casinos Austria Rising Star Award in November 2014, and in December 2015, he clinched the second position in the International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition.
