Recent highlights include his hugely successful and much-publicised jump-in to conduct the London Philharmonic Orchestra in Brahms 4 at the Megaron when Cannelakis was taken ill at the very last-minute, and a concert with the Ulster Orchestra with soloist Mahan Esfahani which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Elsewhere Grammenos has conducted the Belgian National Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Québec, Cameristi della Scala with soloists Khatia Buniatishvili & Renaud Capucon amongst others and in the coming months he looks forward to making his debut with the RTE Concert Orchestra (Dublin). In the opera house Grammenos has conducted the English Touring Opera in a production of Puccini La Bohème which received widespread critical acclaim and at Nevill Holt Opera he conducted Rossini La Cenerentola with the Royal Northern Sinfonia. In his role as Artistic Director of the Greek Youth Symphony Orchestra, he performs regularly at the Megaron and has taken them twice to perform at Berlin’s Konzerthaus.


Dionysis Grammenos first came into contact with music as a child through the sound of the wind bands in his native island Corfu in Greece, and took up the clarinet. 
He quickly gained an international reputation by winning the 1st Prize at the European Young Musicians Competition by the European Broadcasting Union in Vienna at the age of 18 and the title of the "European Young Musician of the Year 2008".
His passion for the symphonic repertoire, opera and the human voice gave him the impetus to embark on a conducting career.
He made his conducting debut at the age of 21 with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.
Grammenos was awarded the ECHO Rising Star Prize as an instrumentalist in 2013 and a Fellowship as a conductor at the Aspen Music Festival in 2016.
He is Founder & Artistic Director of the Greek Youth Symphony Orchestra.
