Jaap van Zweden

Music Director Designate

Jaap van Zweden has become an international presence on three continents over the last decade. The 2017–18 season marks a major milestone as he completes his ten-year tenure as music director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and becomes Music Director Designate of the New York Philharmonic, anticipating his inaugural season, in 2018–19, when he becomes Music Director. He continues as music director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, a post he has held since 2012. In addition to performances with the New York Philharmonic in New York and on tour, his 2017–18 season highlights include returns to the Chicago Symphony, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic orchestras.

Maestro van Zweden has also guest conducted The Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras; Boston, London, and Shanghai symphony orchestras; Los Angeles, Vienna, Berlin, and Munich philharmonic orchestras; Orchestre national de France; and Orchestre de Paris. In 2015 he launched the annual SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival with the Dallas Symphony, and embarked on a four-year project with the Hong Kong Philharmonic to conduct the first-ever Hong Kong performances of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen, to be released on Naxos Records. In the summers of 2017–19 he serves as principal conductor of the Gstaad Festival Orchestra and Gstaad Conducting Academy.

Jaap van Zweden’s acclaimed recordings include Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Petrushka, Britten’s War Requiem, and complete cycles of the Beethoven, Brahms, and Bruckner symphonies. He recorded Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Mozart piano concertos with the Philharmonia Orchestra and David Fray. His celebrated performances of Wagner’s Lohengrin, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and Parsifal (the last of which earned him the prestigious Edison award for Best Opera Recording in 2012) are available on CD and DVD. On the Dallas Symphony’s record label, he has conducted symphonies by Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Mahler, and Dvořák, as well as the World Premiere recording of Stucky’s August 4, 1964. A new recording agreement with Universal Music Group’s U.S. Classical Division and the New York Philharmonic under Jaap van Zweden is being launched in the 2017–18 season.

Born in Amsterdam, Jaap van Zweden was appointed the youngest-ever concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra at 19. He began his conducting career 20 years later, in 1995. He is honorary chief conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, where he served as chief conductor, 2005–13, and conductor emeritus of the Netherlands Radio Chamber Orchestra. He also held the post of chief conductor of the Royal Flanders Orchestra, 2008–11. Maestro van Zweden was named Musical America’s 2012 Conductor of the Year.

In 1997 Jaap van Zweden and his wife, Aaltje, established the Papageno Foundation to support families of children with autism, including by training music therapists and musicians. In August 2015 the opening of Papageno House, a home for autistic young adults and children, in Laren, the Netherlands, was attended by Her Majesty Queen Maxima.

Two-time Grammy Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn took her first lessons shortly before her fourth birthday, made her orchestral debut at 12, completed her university requirements at 16, and received her bachelor’s degree at 19, after having delayed her studies to expand her touring career. Since she began recording at 16 Ms. Hahn has released 15 albums on the Deutsche Grammophon and Sony labels, three DVDs, an Oscar-nominated movie sound track, an award-winning children’s recording, and various compilations. Her recordings have received every critical prize in the international press. In 2010 she released Jennifer Higdon’s Violin Concerto alongside Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto; Higdon’s work, written for Ms. Hahn, went on to win the Pulitzer Prize. In 2013 Ms. Hahn released In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores, the culmination of a multiyear project to renew the encore genre. Her next album, slated for spring 2015, references her musical heritage, featuring works by Mozart and Vieuxtemps, and recorded with longtime colleagues Paavo Järvi and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. An avid writer, she posts journal entries and articles on hilaryhahn.com and produces a YouTube channel on which she frequently interviews guests from around the world. Ms. Hahn has appeared on the covers of most major classical music publications; has been featured in Vogue, Elle, Town & Country, and Marie Claire; was named “America’s Best Young Classical Musician” by TIME magazine in 2001; and appeared on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien in 2010. Her projects beyond the classical world include two records by the alt-rock band …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Tom Brosseau’s album Grand Forks, and a tour with folk-rock singer-songwriter Josh Ritter. Hilary Hahn made her Philharmonic debut in 1994, performing Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, conducted by Paavo Berglund; she most recently joined Colin Davis and the Orchestra in December 2010 for Elgar’s Violin Concerto.
