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.

Yuja Wang

Piano

Since her breakthrough debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 2007 while still a student at the Curtis Institute of Music, pianist Yuja Wang has established herself as an international sensation and a fixture among the world’s leading orchestras. These include the New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, China, Israel, and Munich philharmonic orchestras; the Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras; Chicago, London, Melbourne, NHK, San Francisco, Sydney, and National (Washington, D.C.) symphony orchestras; and the Orchestre de Paris, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Orquesta Nacional de España, Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Mariinsky Orchestra, and Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar. Championed early on by conductors including Gustavo Dudamel, Michael Tilson Thomas, and the late Claudio Abbado, she is one of today’s most sought after soloists.

Ms. Wang is also a dedicated chamber musician and recitalist, appearing at concert halls and festivals worldwide. An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist since 2009, she has released three solo albums and two concerto recordings to date, garnering two Grammy nominations. Intriguing the public both with her artistry and with her sense of style, she has been the subject of television documentaries and graced the pages of magazines ranging from arts and culture to fashion.

Born in Beijing in 1987, Yuja Wang began piano lessons at the age of six and completed studies at Beijing’s Central Conservatory of Music, Calgary’s Mount Royal College Conservatory, and Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music. She is a Rolex ambassador and a Steinway artist.
