Conductor

Alan Gilbert, former Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, launches a new appointment as chief conductor designate of Hamburg’s NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra this fall, shortly after the opening of its already iconic new home. The Grammy Award–winning conductor previously served as principal guest conductor of the orchestra (then known as NDR Symphony Orchestra Hamburg) for more than a decade, and will assume the role of chief conductor in September 2019. This position follows his truly transformative eight-year tenure as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, during which, through such key initiatives as the NY PHIL BIENNIAL, he succeeded in making the Orchestra a leader on the cultural landscape. Alan Gilbert is also conductor laureate of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and the founder and president of Musicians for Unity. With the endorsement and guidance of the United Nations, this new organization will bring together musicians from around the world to perform in support of peace, development, and human rights.

Alan Gilbert makes regular guest appearances with orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. He has led operatic productions for Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, The Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Zurich Opera, Royal Swedish Opera, and Santa Fe Opera, where he was the inaugural music director.

His discography includes The Nielsen Project, a box set recorded with the New York Philharmonic, and John Adams’s Doctor Atomic, captured on DVD at The Metropolitan Opera, for which he won a Grammy Award. He received Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Music Direction in PBS’s Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts of two star-studded New York Philharmonic productions: of Sweeney Todd and Sinatra: Voice for a Century.

Alan Gilbert has received Honorary Doctor of Music degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and Westminster Choir College, as well as Columbia University’s Ditson Conductor’s Award. He is a member of The American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and was named an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. At The Juilliard School, he is the first holder of the William Schuman Chair in Musical Studies and serves as Director of Conducting and Orchestral Studies. After giving the annual Royal Philharmonic Society Lecture on Orchestras in the 21st Century: A New Paradigm during the New York Philharmonic’s EUROPE / SPRING 2015 tour, he received a 2015 Foreign Policy Association Medal for his commitment to cultural diplomacy.

Joyce DiDonato

Mezzo-Soprano

A multiple Grammy Award winner, Kansas-born mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato has earned international prominence in operas by Rossini, Handel, and Mozart, and serves the community as an arts advocate.

Ms. DiDonato’s 2016–17 plans include a season-opening gala concert with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ludovic Morlot. She also gives concerts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Riccardo Muti and the Berlin Philharmonic with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, as well as a recital with Philippe Jordan in Paris. On the opera stage, she makes her role debut as Rossini’s Semiramide in a new production at the Bavarian Staatsoper conducted by Michele Mariotti; she also appears as Handel’s Ariodante on tour with the English Concert and Harry Bicket; Dido in Berlioz’s Les Troyens with John Nelsons in Strasbourg; and Sesto in Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito with Yannick Nézet-Séguin in Baden-Baden. Ms. DiDonato also makes her Off-Broadway debut in White Rabbit Red Rabbit, the internationally acclaimed play by Nassim Soleimanpour. The mezzo-soprano’s next major recording release is In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music; the November 2016 release is accompanied by a 20-city international tour that poses the question: in the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?

Her acclaimed discography also includes the Grammy Award–winning Diva Divo, Drama Queens, ReJoyce!, and Stella di Napoli (Erato/Warner Classics). Other honors include the Gramophone Artist of the Year and Recital of the Year awards, three ECHO Klassik Awards for Female Singer of the Year, induction into the Gramophone Hall of Fame, and Best Female Singer of the Year at the 2016 Premios Líricos Teatro Campoamor.

In-demand on the concert and recital circuit, she has recently held residencies at Carnegie Hall and at London’s Barbican Centre; toured extensively in South America, Europe, and Asia; and appeared as guest soloist at the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms.
