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.

Piano

Pianist Yuja Wang is ready to register fresh achievements during 2016–17 when she returns to China’s National Centre for the Performing Arts as artist-in-residence, connecting her with new audiences in Beijing and beyond. There, in addition to performing six concerts, Ms. Wang will lead master classes and participate in outreach projects.

Ms. Wang’s forthcoming schedule embraces a broad range of repertoire, from Chopin and Shostakovich to Ravel and Schubert. Bartók’s three piano concertos stand as focal points throughout her 2016–17 season, programmed individually for performances in Cleveland, Dallas, Guangzhou, Stockholm, Taiwan, and Toronto, and as a group for concerts in May and June with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by Gustavo Dudamel.

Other highlights include appearances at the 2016 Salzburg, Tanglewood, and Verbier festivals, a return to the Hollywood Bowl, season-opening performances with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick-Nézet-Séguin, and major tours of Asia and Europe with the San Francisco Symphony and the Orchestra della Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, respectively. She is also set to tour with percussionist Martin Grubinger and violinist Leonidas Kavakos, and will undertake a 13-concert European recital tour next March and April.

Yuja Wang was born into a musical family in Beijing. After childhood piano studies in China, she received advanced training in Canada and at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music under Gary Graffman. Her international breakthrough came in 2007 when she replaced Martha Argerich as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Two years later she signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon and has since established her place among the world’s leading artists with a succession of critically acclaimed performances and recordings.

Yuja Wang has been named Musical America’s 2017 Artist of the Year.
