Conductor

Christoph Eschenbach is music director of the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Now in his sixth season, he has taken the NSO on two acclaimed international tours, the Americas Tour 2012 and the Europe / Oman Tour 2013; a third tour is scheduled for February. His season with the NSO also includes two World Premieres, of commissions by Tobias Picker and Sean Shepherd. Mr. Eschenbach appears as pianist on the Fortas Chamber Music Concerts and on other Kennedy Center series. Additional season highlights include appearances with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and the Vienna Philharmonic in Austria and Asia, and with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and Filarmonica della Scala. A prolific recording artist over five decades, Christoph Eschenbach has an impressive discography as both a conductor and a pianist. With the NSO he recorded Remembering JFK (Ondine), and he has made CDs with The Philadelphia Orchestra (Ondine), Orchestre de Paris (Ondine and Deutsche Grammophon), London Philharmonic Orchestra (EMI/LPO Live), London Symphony Orchestra (DG/BMG), Vienna Philharmonic (Decca), and NDR Symphony Orchestra (BMG/Sony and Warner), among others. His recordings have received the 2014 Best Classical Compendium Grammy, BBC Music Magazine’s Disc of the Month, Gramophone’s Editors’ Choice, and German Record Critics’ Award. His Ondine recording music by Kaija Saariaho with the Orchestre de Paris and soprano Karita Mattila won the 2009 MIDEM Classical Award in Contemporary Music, and his recording and video of Mahler’s complete symphonies with the Orchestre de Paris is available to stream for free on his website. Mentored by George Szell and Herbert von Karajan, Mr. Eschenbach’s career has included music directorships of the Orchestre de Paris (2000–10), Philadelphia Orchestra (2003–08), Ravinia Festival (1994–2003), NDR Symphony Orchestra (1998–2004), and Houston Symphony (1988–99). He has also served as artistic director of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival (1999–2002) and chief conductor and artistic director of Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra (1982–86). His many honors include the 2015 Ernst von Siemens Music Prize, Légion d’Honneur, Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Officer’s Cross with Star and Ribbon of the German Order of Merit, Commander’s Cross of the German Order of Merit for outstanding achievements, and the Leonard Bernstein Award from the Pacific Music Festival, where he was co-artistic director (1992–98). Christoph Eschenbach mentors young performers, working regularly with the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra and students of the NSO’s Youth Fellowship Program.
