Maxim Emelyanychev (Максим Емельянычев; born 1988, Dzerzhinsk) is a Russian conductor and harpsichordist.

From a musical family, Emelyanychev studied music at the Nizhny Novogorod Choral College from 1995 to 2003, where his teachers included M.A. Samorukova (conducting). He continued his music studies at the Balakirev State Music College in Nizhny Novogrod, where his teachers included V.G. Starynin (piano) and A.M. Skulsky (conducting). He also studied conducting with Gennady Rozhdestvensky at the Moscow State Conservatory.

Emelyanychev joined the period instrument ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro in 2011. He became chief conductor of Il Pomo d'Oro in 2016. He and the ensemble have recorded commercially for Erato.[1]

In March 2018, Emelyanychev first guest-conducted the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO), as an emergency substitute for Robin Ticciati. Based on this appearance, in May 2018, the SCO announced the appointment of Emelyanychev as its next principal conductor, effective with the 2019–2020 season.[2] Emelyanychev and the SCO have commercially recorded for Linn Records the Symphony No. 9 of Franz Schubert,[3] which was on Emelyanychev's debut programme with the SCO in March 2018.
