Biography
Jiri Belohlavek

Czech conductor Jiří Bĕlohlávek was appointed music director and artistic director of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in 2012, following his successful tenure as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, of which he is now a conductor laureate. Previously he served as chief conductor of the Prague Symphony Orchestra (1977–89), music director of the Prague Philharmonia (1994–2004), and president of the Prague Spring Festival (appointed in 2006). In 2013 he took on the role of principal guest conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In opera, he has collaborated with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; The Metropolitan Opera; San Francisco Opera; Opéra National de Paris; Teatro Real, Madrid; Glyndebourne Festival Opera; and National Theatre in Prague, and in recent seasons he has conducted new productions of Dvořák’s Rusalka for the Vienna Staatsoper and Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades for Zurich Opera.

Under Mr. Bĕlohlávek’s leadership the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra has toured Europe and Asia, and will be heard in the coming seasons in Vienna, for a residency at the Musikverein, and across the U.S., including an appearance at Carnegie Hall. In addition to his ongoing Prague seasons and touring engagements with the Czech Philharmonic, he continues to perform as a guest conductor with the world’s major orchestras, with future highlights including appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra (including the BBC Proms), and Leipzig’s Gewandhaus Orchestra. Jiří Bĕlohlávek has recorded extensively, and recent projects with the Czech Philharmonic include Dvořák’s complete symphonies and concertos. In 2012 he was awarded an honorary CBE for his services to British music.
