Peter Jermihov, who has studied orchestral conducting at the Leningrad Conservatory in my class, is gifted
with superlative qualities as a conductor: a bold temperament and an assertive will. His conducting is
outstanding for its active and expressive gesture and for its musical substance. Having mastered a large
repertoire, in part a great number of works by Russian masters, he works remarkably well with the
orchestra and skillfully achieves positive results. He is well-prepared for a professional career as an
orchestral conductor and has unquestionable potential in his further artistic development.

conducting, I am very impressed by his conducting talent, commitment to the music, and ability to lead an

make him, in my opinion, one of America’s most promising conductors.

choral and orchestral. He has exceptional knowledge of literature. He also has an exceptionally pleasant
personality and is ethical in every way.
