The style of conducting of Maestro Arkady Berin is distinguished by accurate rhythmical precision, as well as organic flowing gestures and well- coordinated entries , which sometimes are developing to dramatical, extensive dynamical risings with wide- spread gestures of suggestive expression and tonal imagination.
In this way Arkady Berin sets a high value on the acoustic balance between the different instrumental sections of the orchestra, as well as in instrumental solo concertos and operas the dynamical and metrical adjustment of the orchestra to the soloists, who appear as being integrated acoustically in an organic whole but still are dynamically present in the foreground.
With a well- balanced sound of the string section, a warm and luminous sounds of the woodwind group, the well- finished sonority of the perfect intonated brass section as well as a great variety of dynamical shades and a certain instinct for the architectural and thematical context of a work, Arkady Berin creates well- studied interpretations of music of all periods.
Maestro Arkady Berin combinates the razor-sharp rhythmical precision of Arturo Toscanini with the phenomenal tonal imagination of Karajan oder Furtwängler and the sparkling esprit of Leonard Bernstein. With his direct, precise gestures and economical but most effective conducting style and suggestive power of persuasion Arkady Berin communicates immediately with orchestra musicians of all nations.
In three decades of playing concerts and teaching as a professor for conducting Arkady Berin became one of the most outstanding conductors of our time, who has a wide-spread repertoire of all periods of symphonic and operatic music.

Since his childhood in Russia Arkady Berin has a special relationship to the way of expression of the so-called „Russian Soul“- the great poets and literates as Puschkin, Tolstoi und Dostojewsky and the famous russian composers as Tschaikowsky, Rachmaninov, Glinka und Mussorgsky.
With his natural feeling for the character of every work, his unmistakable charisma on stage, a certain instinct for the forming of expressive melodious bends and the structure of thematical and motive- connections Arkady Berin motivates orchestral musicians from various cultural origins to a maximum performance and electrifies audiences of all nations.
