Charles Dutoit by CAMI

Conductor

Charles Dutoit has performed with all the major orchestras on most stages of five continents. Artistic director and principal conductor of the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, he recently celebrated his 30-year artistic collaboration with The Philadelphia Orchestra, which bestowed upon him the title of conductor laureate. He collaborates regularly with the New York Philharmonic, as well as with the orchestras of Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and is also a regular guest on stages in London, Berlin, Paris, Munich, Moscow, Sydney, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. His more than 200 recordings for Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, Philips, and Erato have garnered multiple awards and distinctions, including two Grammys. For 25 years Mr. Dutoit was artistic director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. From 1991 to 2001 he was music director of the Orchestre National de France, and in 1996 he was appointed principal conductor and, soon thereafter, music director of the NHK Symphony Orchestra (Tokyo), for which he now serves as music director emeritus. He was music director of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Mann Music Center season for ten years, as well as at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center for 21 years. Mr. Dutoit’s interest in the younger generation has always held an important place in his career, and he has successively been music director of the Sapporo Pacific Music Festival and Miyazaki International Music Festival in Japan, as well as the Canton International Summer Music Academy in Guangzhou. In 2009 he became music director of the Verbier Festival Orchestra. When still in his early 20s, Charles Dutoit was invited by Herbert von Karajan to conduct the Vienna Staatsoper. He has since conducted at The Metropolitan Opera, Deutsche Oper in Berlin, Rome Opera, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. He has been named Honorary Citizen of the City of Philadelphia (1991), Grand Officier de l’Ordre national du Québec (1995), and Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the government of France (1996); was invested as Honorary Officer of the Order of Canada (1998); received the Gold Medal of the city of Lausanne, his birthplace (2007); and was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Classical Music Awards (2014). He holds honorary doctorates from McGill, Montreal, and Laval universities and the Curtis Institute of Music. A globetrotter motivated by his passion for history, archaeology, political science, art, and architecture, Charles Dutoit has traveled in all 196 nations of the world.

Mr. Capuçon collaborates with artists including pianists Martha Argerich, Hélène Grimaud, Yefim Bronfman, and Jean-Yves Thibaudet. His extensive discography includes projects for EMI/Virgin Classics, including Mendelssohn and Haydn trios and Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with Ms. Argerich; Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, Milhaud, and Ravel with Daniel Harding and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen; Ravel chamber music with cellist Gautier Capuçon and pianist Frank Braley; and Dutilleux’s Violin Concerto with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Myung-Whun Chung. Born in Chambéry in 1976, Renaud Capuçon studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris with Gérard Poulet and Veda Reynolds, and later with Thomas Brandis in Berlin and Isaac Stern. Invited by Claudio Abbado in 1998 to be concertmaster of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, he continued his musical education with Pierre Boulez, Seiji Ozawa, Daniel Barenboim, and Franz Welser-Möst. In 2000 he was named “Rising Star” and “New Talent of the Year” by the French Victoires de la Musique, and in 2005 he was awarded the title of “Instrumental Soloist of the Year.” In 2006 he received the “Prix Georges Enesco” by Sacem, and in June 2011 he was appointed Chevalier dans l’Ordre National du Mérite by the French government.
