New York–born conductor David Zinman has held positions as music director of the Rotterdam and Rochester Philharmonic orchestras and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra; principal conductor of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra; and music director of the Aspen Music Festival and School and American Academy of Conducting. He has just completed his 19-year tenure as music director of Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra, with his final performance at the 2014 BBC Proms. A regular guest with the world’s leading orchestras, in recent engagements he has worked with the Bavarian Radio and Vienna Symphony Orchestras, London and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic orchestras, Orchestre de Paris, and Orchestre national de France. He regularly conducts the New York Philharmonic and in the summer of 2014 he appeared with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood and with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra. Upcoming projects include performances with the Toronto, NHK, Berlin’s German, and Washington’s National symphony orchestras, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus and Czech Philharmonic orchestras. Mr. Zinman’s discography of more than 100 recordings has received international honors, including five Grammy Awards, two Grand Prix du Disque, two Edison Prizes, the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, and a Gramophone Award. Recent releases include a 50-CD box set David Zinman: Great Symphonies — The Zurich Years, which commemorates his recording legacy with Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra. In 2000 Mr. Zinman was awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and in 2002 he was first conductor and non-Swiss recipient of the City of Zurich Art Prize. He received the Thomas Theodore award in recognition of outstanding achievement and extraordinary service to one’s colleagues in advancing the art and science of conducting. In 2008 he won the Midem Classical Artist of the Year award for his work with the Tonhalle Orchestra. He was also the 1997 recipient of the Ditson Award from Columbia University in recognition of his exceptional commitment to the performance of works by American composers.

Lisa Batiashvili, Musical America’s 2015 Instrumentalist of the Year, is artist-in-residence with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich for the 2015–16 season. The Georgian violinist has developed long-term relationships with some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, with whom she was the 2014–15 Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence. Her 2015–16 season engagements include the Berlin Philharmonic and London Philharmonic Orchestra (both with Yannick Nézet-Séguin), Orchestre de Paris (Paavo Järvi), Vienna Philharmonic (Esa-Pekka Salonen), London Symphony Orchestra (Daniel Harding), and New York Philharmonic (Semyon Bychkov), as well as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s European tour (Sakari Oramo). She also performs in a series of recitals celebrating the 100th anniversary of Henri Dutilleux's birth, collaborating with Gautier Capuçon, Frank Braley, Valery Sokolov, and Gérard Causse, at London’s Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Vienna’s Musikverein, Paris’s Philharmonie 2, and Zurich’s Tonhalle. Recent and upcoming invitations include concerts at home and on tour with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Boston Symphony Orchestra. Last season Ms. Batiashvili performed with Milan’s Filarmonica della Scala and Berlin Staatskapelle (both led by Daniel Barenboim) and Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia (Antonio Pappano). She and her husband, François Leleux, performed the World Premiere of Thierry Escaich’s Concerto for Violin and Oboe with the NDR Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, followed by its U.S. Premiere with the New York Philharmonic, led by Alan Gilbert, as part of her residencies with both orchestras.

Lisa Batiashvili records exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon, and her most recent release is dedicated to works by J.S. and C.P.E. Bach, featuring, among others, François Leleux, Emmanuel Pahud, and the Bavarian Radio Chamber Orchestra. Earlier recordings include the Brahms Violin Concerto with Dresden Staatskapelle, led by Christian Thielemann (also available on DVD), and Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, led by Salonen).
