General Music Director of the G. Hauptmann Theater Görlitz-Zittau and Principal Conductor of the Neue Lausitzer Philharmonie, Ewa Strusińska first became known to the artistic world as a laureate and prize winner at the prestigious Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition in Bamberg.

From 2013 to 2016, Ewa Strusińska held a position of Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Szczecin Philharmonic Orchestra, and from 2008 to 2010 she was Assistant Conductor with the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester (the first ever female assistant conductor of a British orchestra) where she worked closely with Music Director Sir Mark Elder CBE, conducting the orchestra as well as the Hallé Youth Orchestra in many concerts.

Ewa Strusińska has also built up an extensive operatic and ballet repertoire as an Assistant Conductor at the Polish National Opera and Polish National Ballet – Teatr Wielki in Warsaw. Her other opera work includes appearances at the RNCM, Buxton Opera Festival and Theater Magdeburg.

Born in Poland, Ewa Strusińska studied at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, and upon finishing her studies spent a year working as Assistant Conductor at Czestochowa Philharmonic Orchestra. In the same year she won a position of Junior Fellow in Conducting at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and moved to the United Kingdom. In 2008 she was chosen by the London Symphony Orchestra to be one of three participants in a masterclass by Valery Gergiev, and in 2010 collaborated with the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden.

Internationally, she has worked with a range of orchestras including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Bamberger Symphoniker, Hallé Orchestra, Magdeburgische Philharmonie, Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock, Hofer Symphoniker, Sinfonietta Baden, Uppsala Chamber Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, National Polish Radio Orchestra, Sinfonia Varsovia, Szczecin Philharmonic Orchestra, Łódź Philharmonic Orchestra, Opole Philharmonic Orchestra, Warsaw National Opera Philharmonic Orchestra, Beethoven Academy Orchestra, Sinfonia Iuventus, Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Gävle Symfoniorkester, Norrlands Opera Symphony Orchestra, Slovak Sinfonietta, Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester and the Northern Sinfonia.

Over recent years, Ewa Strusińska has become internationally acclaimed as one of the principal architects of the transformation of the Szczecin Philharmonic Orchestra, leading its players to scale new artistic heights amid the sensational acoustics of the multi award winning Szczecin Philharmonic Hall.

She has been given the title ‘Ambassador of Stalowa Wola’ by her home town. The accolade recognises an individual’s personal achievements in Poland and abroad.

Ewa Strusinska with Szczecin Philharmonic Orchestra

London Symphony Orchestra conducting masterclass


Szymanowski’s 2nd Symphony

The orchestra creates a perfect balance between Wagnerian power and Polish playfulness; the result is astonishing, you could almost dance to it. The ensemble shows its skill especially in the fast movements, which is also due to Ewa Strusińska’s sensitive work. In her conducting one can learn how well Polish and German characters harmonize.

„Das Gespensterschloss“ am Teatr Wielki in Warschau 

Am Dirigentenpult stand Ewa Strusinska, die das Orchester und die Solisten mit sicherer Hand führte und dabei den komödiantischen Nerv von Moniuszkos Musik mit einer Deutlichkeit hervortreten ließ, wie man sie selten erlebt.
– Jakub Godzic auf www.teatrakcje.pl

Sinfoniekonzert in der Philharmonie Stettin

Die Interpretation von zwei Werken Lili Boulangers (D’un soir triste und D’un matin de printemps) hatte in sich viel Leichtigkeit. Die Dirigentin arbeitete – zusammen mit dem bereitwillig folgenden Orchester – sehr schön die Legato-Bögen und den Wechsel von subtilem Piano und expressivem Forte heraus: Ewa Strusinska verstand die Musik und das Orchester verstand Ewa Strusinska.
