Born 1986 in Finland, Ville Matvejeff has already established himself as an exceptionally wide-ranging musician enjoying success as conductor, composer and pianist. He trained at the Sibelius Academy and Espoo Music Institute and has performed throughout Europe as well as the USA, China, Japan and Mexico.

In January 2014 he assumed the position of Chief Conductor of Jyväskylä Sinfonia and he takes up his appointment as Artistic Director of the Turku Music Festival in September 2015. Recent debuts include the Duisburg Philharmonic, Estonian National Symphony, Lahti Symphony, Rijeka Opera and Sonderjylland Symphony Orchestras. Previous appearances include Avanti! Chamber Orchestra, Finnish National Opera Orchestra, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Malmö Opera Orchestra, the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Pori Sinfonietta, Oulu Sinfonia, Tapiola Sinfonietta and Turku Philharmonic Orchestra amongst others. He has developed a broad repertoire extending from the classical through to the 20th century and contemporary; a bass-baritone with solo performances on both concert and opera stages to his credit, he is equally conversant with choral repertoire.

Matvejeff is Founder of New Generation Opera; presenting ambitious and technologically innovative performances, the company appeared at the Helsinki Festival with its cutting edge production of Don Giovanni which received a nomination for the Classical:NEXT 2015 Innovation Award. He made his opera debut in September 2011 at Pori Opera with critically acclaimed performances of Purcell’s Fairy Queen and has held positions at the Malmö Opera and the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm as well as working as assistant with conductors such as Esa-Pekka Salonen and Leif Segerstam. He has conducted a diversity of repertoire ranging from Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Saint-Saëns’ Samson et Dalila and Aribert Reimann’s Lear, as well as contemporary works such as Kimmo Hakola’s Akseli with Jorma Hynninen in the title role and Mikko Heiniö’s Eerik XIV. This season includes The Magic Flute with the Turku Opera, Don Giovanni with the Jyväskylä Sinfonia and Andrea Chenier, Eugene Onegin, and Giulio Cesare at the Croatian National Theatre Ivan Zajc, Rijeka. 

A musical polymath, Matvejeff is also a pianist and composer. He made his concert debut as pianist at the age of 18 with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under conductor Susanna Mälkki and has since toured the world in duo recital partnership with soprano Karita Mattila with appearances at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Salle Pleyel and Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, Wigmore Hall in London and Zürich Opera. As a composer, he has recently received commissions from the Finnish Chamber Orchestra and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, for whom he wrote his Violin Concerto to celebrate the inauguration of the Helsinki Music Centre in September 2011. A recording of his orchestral works Ad Astra and Cello Concerto Crossroads has recently been released on the Alba label. His passion for the human voice has also led him to write a substantial amount of choral music.
