Maxim Rysanov studied conducting with Alan Hazeldine at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London where he also received his education as a violist. He also participated in masterclasses with Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Jorma Panula and most recently had been taking lessons from Oleg Caetani. In 2003 Maxim has won the Young Conductor in association with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Competition. He had to refuse the position due to at-the-time-starting-to-be-busy soloist career. But he always stayed in close touch with his conductor self.

Recently Maxim’s conducting engagements included the Russian National Orchestra, Spanish Radio Orchestra (RTVE), La Verdi Orchestra Milan, Basel Symphony Orchestra, Dala Sinfonietta, Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León, Danubia Symphony Budapest, Georgian National Symphony Orchestra, Riga Sinfonietta, Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, Musica Viva (Moscow), London Mozart Players, Voronezh Youth Orchestra, Kiev Soloists, Częstochowa Philharmonic Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra Chaarts, Detmold Chamber Orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia, Budapest Festival Academy Orchestra, Classic FM Orchestra (Bulgaria), Baltic Neopolis Chamber Orchestra, Antonio Vivaldi Orchestra, Scottish Ensemble, Homecoming Festival Ensemble, Aurora Festival Orchestra, Dubrovnik Festival Ensemble and Utrecht Festival Ensemble.

As a conductor Maxim worked with such soloists as Mischa Maisky, Nicola Benedetti, Vilde Frang, Janine Jansen, Boris Brovtsyn, Alexander Sitkovetsky, Sergei Krylov, Sosanna Yoko Henkel, Sergei Suvorov, Kristina Blaumane, Ashley Wass, Benjamin Yusupov, Leonard Elschenbroich, Dora Kokas and Kelemen Quartet among others.

Maxim is a keen promoter of new music. Recently he conducted the Russian premier of the Piano Concerto by Benjamin Yusupov. Maxim featured as both conductor and soloist on the debut disc of composer Dobrinka Tabakova (ECM) in 2013 – a disc that reached number 2 in the UK classical charts and was shortlisted for a Grammy Award. Future engagements include Plovdiv Philharmonic (Kristina Blaumane), Sofia Opera Orchestra and Chorus (Bulgarian premier of Cantata by Dobrinka Tabakova), Sofia Philharmonic, Royal College of Music String Orchestra, Lviv Philharmonic, Detmold Chamber Orchestra, Lepaje Symphony Orchestra (soloist David Geringas) and the Pforzheim Stadtsorchester.
