In June of 2003 I prepared Deniz Sever for the entrance exam at the Saint-Petersburg Rimsky-Korsakov State Concervatory.He was accepted in,2003 to Prof.Yuri FALIK's composition class.Along with this successful education area,we continued to work at his conducting skills and as a result he became Vasily SINAISKY's student at the conducting department at the same school. Deniz Sever graduated as a composer and conductor from Rimsky-Korsakov State Concervatory.I've known him and watched his growth for many years now,and his working discipline,musical talent and skills,his investigative,questioning and detemined personality has impressed me very much and gained my appreciation. His ability to work in a team and his coordination with the orchestra will be very helpful in his future works.I sincerely believe that he will make a very successful career as a conductor and as a composer.

Mr. Sever joined Istanbul State Opera and Ballet on May 15th,2011 and since he has been working at our company as a repetitor and conductor.I firmly believe that his success will increasingly continue in his future performances.
