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, and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.

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. A recording of Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic’s performances of Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 and 7 was released on CD and for streaming and download in February 2018; the release launched the Philharmonic’s partnership with Decca Gold, Universal Music Group’s newly established U.S. classical music label.

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 nearly 20 years later, in 1996. He remains honorary chief conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, where he served as chief conductor, 2005–13. 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.
