In a recent interview with Russian television network (broadcasting culture and arts-orientated shows), Russia K, Vasily shared some of his future plans, from lobbying for the musical education projects in Liverpool to trying to get a new concert hall for the Oslo Philharmonic orchestra.

“Partnership between the conductor and the orchestra is the most important thing.
