Charles Dutoit by CAMI

Conductor

Charles Dutoit is artistic director and principal conductor of London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; conductor laureate of The Philadelphia Orchestra, a title honoring an artistic collaboration spanning 32 years; and music director emeritus of the NHK Symphony Orchestra, where he was previously principal conductor and later music director.

He recently received the 103rd Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal, one of classical music’s highest honors, founded in 1870 to celebrate the centenary of Beethoven’s birth. Mr. Dutoit served as artistic director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra for 25 years, and was music director of the Orchestre national de France from 1991 to 2001. He performs each season with the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras and the Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, and is a regular guest on stages in London, Berlin, Paris, Munich, Moscow, Sydney, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tokyo.

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 Berlin, Rome Opera, Buenos Aires’s Teatro Colón, and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden.

Mr. Dutoit’s interest in supporting the younger generation has always held an important place in his career; he has been music director of the Sapporo Pacific Music Festival and Miyazaki International Music Festival in Japan; the Canton International Summer Music Academy in Guangzhou, China; the Lindenbaum Festival in Seoul, South Korea; and the Verbier Festival Orchestra, where he is now conductor emeritus.

His more than 200 recordings have garnered multiple awards and distinctions including two Grammys. In 2014 he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Classical Music Awards. A globetrotter motivated by his passion for history and archaeology, political science, art, and architecture, he has traveled in all 196 nations of the world.

Piano

Pianist Yuja Wang’s 2017–18 season features recitals, concert series, and tours with some of the world’s most venerated ensembles and conductors. She began the summer of 2017 on tour with the London Symphony Orchestra and Michael Tilson Thomas and a program featuring Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2, followed by a performance of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Lionel Bringuier. Later engagements include concerts with the Munich Philharmonic and Valery Gergiev, a series of performances at the Verbier Festival, and a three-city German tour with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic. She also embarks on play-conduct tours with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and joins Jaap van Zweden’s inaugural tour with the New York Philharmonic and the final tour of Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s directorship with the Rotterdam Philharmonic. Other notable appearances include concerts in Hong Kong, Miami, Prague, Tel Aviv, Berlin, and Washington, D.C.

In the winter of 2017 Ms. Wang reunites with violinist and frequent collaborator Leonidas Kavakos for a European chamber tour, and in the spring of 2018 she embarks on a recital tour to premier venues in the U.S. and Europe, which includes stops in New York City, San Francisco, Rome, Vienna, Berlin, and Paris.

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 with 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. Ms. Wang was named Musical America’s Artist of the Year for 2017.
