Biography
Christoph Eschenbach

Christoph Eschenbach is in demand as a distinguished guest conductor with the finest orchestras and opera houses throughout the world, including those in Vienna, Berlin, Paris, London, New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Milan, Rome, Munich, Dresden, Leipzig, Madrid, Tokyo, and Shanghai. Mr. Eschenbach is currently principal conductor of the Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin. In June 2017 he received the title of conductor laureate of the National Symphony Orchestra after having served as music director (2010–17). He was also music director of the Orchestre de Paris (2000–10), The Philadelphia Orchestra (2003–08), NDR Symphony Orchestra (1998–2004), and Houston Symphony (1988–99).

Mr. Eschenbach is regularly invited to perform at prestigious music festivals including Salzburg, Prague, Tanglewood, Ravinia, Schleswig Holstein, Rheingau, Saint Petersburg, and Granada, A prolific recording artist over five decades, he has an impressive discography as both a conductor and a pianist on a number of prominent labels. His recordings include works ranging from J.S. Bach to music of our time, and reflect his commitment not just to canonical works but also to the music of the late-20th and early-21st-century. In 2014 he received a Grammy Award for his Hindemith CD with violinist Midori and the NDR Symphony Orchestra.

Christoph Eschenbach was mentored by George Szell and Herbert von Karajan, and because of his commitment to passing on musical knowledge and experience, he dedicates time each season to run master classes and orchestra academies for young performers. These include the Schleswig-Holstein Academy Orchestra, Kronberg Academy, Manhattan School of Music, and Milan’s Accademia della Scala.

Mr. Eschenbach’s many honors include the French distinctions of Légion d’Honneur, Officier dans l’Ordre National du Mérite, and Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He also carries the Commander’s Cross of German Order of Merit and the Leonard Bernstein Award from the Pacific Music Festival. In 2015 he received the prestigious Ernst von Siemens Music Award in honor of his life’s dedication to music.
