Jaap van Zweden

Music Director Designate, 2017–18

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 simultaneously serves as Music Director Designate of the New York Philharmonic, anticipating his inaugural season, in 2018–19, when he becomes the Orchestra’s 26th Music Director. He continues as Music Director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, a post he has held since 2012. Highlights of his 2017–18 season include return engagements to the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Maestro van Zweden has appeared as guest conductor with many leading orchestras around the globe, including, in addition to those above, 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. With the Dallas Symphony he launched the annual SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival in 2015, the same year that he and the Hong Kong Philharmonic embarked on a four-year project featuring the first-ever performances in Hong Kong of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen, which is being recorded for release 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 has made numerous acclaimed recordings, including Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Petrushka, Britten’s War Requiem, and the complete Beethoven and Brahms symphonies. He has also completed the cycle of Bruckner symphonies with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, has recorded Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (on the LPO Live label), and released Mozart piano concertos with the Philharmonia Orchestra and David Fray (Virgin). His highly praised performances of Wagner’s Lohengrin, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and Parsifal (the last of which earned Maestro van Zweden the prestigious Edison award for Best Opera Recording in 2012) are available on CD and / or DVD. On the Dallas Symphony’s own record label, he has released symphonies by Tchaikovsky (Nos. 4 and 5), Beethoven (Nos. 5 and 7), Mahler (Nos. 3 and 6), and Dvořák (No. 9, From the New World), as well as the World Premiere recording of Steven Stucky’s concert drama August 4, 1964. His most recent releases on Naxos are his recordings with the Hong Kong Philharmonic of Wagner’s Das Rheingold and Die Walküre.

Born in Amsterdam, Jaap van Zweden was appointed as the youngest-ever concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra at 19, and began his conducting career 20 years later in 1995. He remains 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 recognition of his critically acclaimed work as music director of the Dallas Symphony and as a guest conductor with the most prestigious U.S. orchestras.

In 1997 Jaap van Zweden and his wife, Aaltje, established the Papageno Foundation with the objective of supporting families of children with autism. Over the years, the support from Papageno has taken shape through a number of programs in which professional music therapists and musicians receive additional training in using music as a major tool for working with autistic children. Papageno House, a new home for autistic young adults and children, was opened in Laren, The Netherlands, in August 2015, with Her Majesty Queen Maxima in attendance.

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.
