Chief Conductor Designate of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic


The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra today announces Domingo Hindoyan as its Chief Conductor from September 2021

Announced today, Domingo Hindoyan will become the new Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra from September 2021. Hindoyan builds on the legacy of Vasily Petrenko who steps down after 15 years and who will then assume the role of Conductor Laureate.

Domingo Hindoyan commented:

“Since the very first time I worked with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, I encountered an amazing group of musicians whose warm personalities and passion for music shone through. This Orchestra is a great collective force formed by brilliant individuals.  

What excited me was not only the Orchestra but the vibrant city of Liverpool and its historic connection with music and sports. An orchestra is a fundamental ambassador for the arts, and together our priorities will be to preserve the great heritage of the music we perform, welcome audiences with unprecedented sounds, and build the future for new generations with fruitful educational projects.

I am thrilled to be the new Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and know that together we will lead a new chapter in its musical history.”

The Times


"The conductor Domingo Hindoyan directed precise, energetic performances of Strauss's Don Juan and Stravinsky's Firebird suite."

Richard Morrison

La Traviata / Royal Swedish Opera

Seen and Heard International


"The prelude began so softly that some people in the audience continued their conversation until they were hushed, following which we could enjoy the concentrated tension that conductor Domingo Hindoyan drew from the excellent Royal Orchestra. Indeed, Hindoyan and the orchestra continued to be a dominant factor throughout the performance. Rarely have the musicians in the pit played such an active part in La traviata – a work traditionally regarded as a singers’ opera. But Hindoyan breathes with the singers, pushes them and occasionally hesitates with them."

Göran Forsling

Luisa Miller / Gran Teatre del Liceu

Ópera Áctual


"La propuesta verdiana ha destacado especialmente por la dirección musical del venezolano Domingo Hindoyan, formado como violinista en El Sistema en su país natal y como asistente de Daniel Barenboim, habiendo dirigido en algunos de los teatros más importantes del mundo, desde la Staatsoper de Berlín al Met de Nueva York. Su lectura de Luisa Miller fue impactante por la calidad de la concertación y por cómo supo destacar toda la viveza y la excelencia de la partitura, el equilibrio entre la Simfònica del Liceu y el elenco de cantantes y la perfecta conjunción y matización del fraseo, extrayendo un sonido suntuoso de unas cuerdas que se han escuchado así en muy escasas ocasiones."

Fernando Sans Rivière

Tosca / Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin



"Domingo Hindoyan reprend Tosca dans cette salle depuis 2015, à la suite de Daniel Barenboim présent seulement pour les représentations de la création. Son style fluide et son attention tant aux pupitres de l’orchestre qu’au plateau ne mettent personne en difficulté. Le drame s’actionne donc sans problème et la Staatskapelle Berlin ne présente jamais trop de lourdeur, sauf à l’occasion chez quelques bois."
