A son of a prominent musicologist, Daniel Raiskin grew up in St. Petersburg. He attended the celebrated conservatory in his native city and continued his studies in Amsterdam and Freiburg. First focusing on violin and viola, he got inspired to take up the baton by an encounter with the distinguished teacher Lev Savich. In addition, he also took classes with Maestri such as Mariss Jansons, Neeme Järvi, Milan Horvat, Woldemar Nelson und Jorma Panula. Raiskin, who cultivates a broad repertoire, often looks beyond the mainstream in his strikingly conceived programmes.
From the 2018/19 season onwards, Daniel Raiskin will be Music Director of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and since 2017/18 he is Principal Guest Conductor of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra as well as Artistic Partner of the Chamber Orchestra St. Michael Strings in Finland. Daniel Raiskin’s engagements in the 2018/19 season include appearances with Netherlands Symphony Orchestra und Orquesta Clásica Santa Cecilia. Moreover, he will give his debut with St. Petersburg Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra.
