Current highlights include debuts with the Belgian National Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Québec, Cameristi della Scala, with soloists Khatia Buniatishvili & Renaud Capucon, as well an appearance at the Berlin Konzerthaus with Beethoven's Eroica.
Grammenos leads the English Touring Opera production of Puccini’s La Bohème, then in summer 2023 makes his debut at the Nevill Holt Opera with Rossini’s La Cenerentola and the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
Other highlights include conducting Nielsen’s 4th Symphony with the Banatul Philharmonic and Rachmaninov's 2nd Symphony at Royal Conservatoire Scotland.
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.
