Marios Papadopoulos is Founder and Artistic Director of the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra. Enjoying an international career as a pianist and conductor, he has worked with many eminent musicians including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Renée Fleming and Lang Lang. In 2018, Papadopoulos performed a mini-cycle of Mozart’s piano concertos in China with the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra. The Oxford Philharmonic’s 2018-19 season sees him direct Stravinsky’s Concerto for Piano and Winds and in March 2019 he will conduct a new production of The Marriage of Figaro at the Greek National Opera. Papadopoulos’s recording catalogue includes his critically acclaimed Beethoven sonatas – which have been set on a level with Schnabel, Brendel, Barenboim, and Kempff (Daily Telegraph, Classic FM Magazine) – and works by Stravinsky (with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Mozart, Mussorgsky, Franck and Shostakovich. He and Maxim Vengerov have recorded the complete Brahms violin sonatas and performed them at Vienna’s Musikverein in 2016. Papadopoulos was awarded an MBE in 2014 and is a Fellow by Special Election of Keble College, Oxford.

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
