Conductor

David Robertson — conductor, artist, thinker, and American musical visionary — occupies some of the most prominent platforms on the international music scene. A highly sought-after podium figure in the worlds of opera, orchestral music, and new music, Mr. Robertson is celebrated worldwide as a champion of contemporary composers, an ingenious and adventurous programmer, and a masterful communicator whose passionate advocacy for the art form is widely recognized.

Currently in his valedictory season as music director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and his fifth season as chief conductor and artistic director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, he has held artistic leadership positions at musical institutions including the Orchestre national de Lyon and, as a protégé of Pierre Boulez, the Ensemble InterContemporain. He held the post of principal guest conductor at the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Mr. Robertson has been an artist on the Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall, where he has conducted, among others, The Met Orchestra and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. He appears regularly in Europe with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, Czech Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony and Dresden Staatskapelle orchestras and at the Berlin Festival, Edinburgh Festival, BBC Proms, and Munich’s Musica Viva Festival.

In March 2018 Mr. Robertson returned to The Metropolitan Opera to conduct the premiere of Phelim McDermott’s new production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. Since his Met Opera debut in 1996, with Janáček’s The Makropulos Case, he has conducted a wide range of Met projects, including the house premiere of John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer (2014), the 2016 revival of Janáček’s Jenůfa, and the premiere production of Nico Muhly’s Two Boys (2013). He has frequent projects at the world’s most prestigious opera houses, including Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Paris’s Théâtre du Châtelet, and the San Francisco and Santa Fe Operas.

During his 13-year tenure with the St. Louis Symphony, Mr. Robertson’s fruitful relationships with artists, including composer John Adams, have yielded numerous recordings, such as City Noir (Nonesuch, 2014), which won the Grammy Award for Best Orchestral Performance. Mr. Robertson is the recipient of numerous musical awards and is a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France.

David Robertson is devoted to supporting young musicians and has worked with students at numerous festivals internationally. In 2014 he led the U.S. tour of Carnegie Hall’s National Youth Orchestra of the USA.

Kent Tritle has been the organist of the New York Philharmonic since 1994 and of the American Symphony Orchestra since 1993. He is also director of cathedral music and organist at The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City, where he leads the Great Music in a Great Space series. In 2015 he became chair of the organ department of the Manhattan School of Music, a historically distinguished program whose alumni include David Higgs, now the chairman of the acclaimed Eastman School Organ Department.

Kent Tritle performed Saint-Saëns’s Organ Symphony with the New York Philharmonic in June 2010, conducted by Andrew Davis. He is featured in the Philharmonic’s recordings of Brahms’s A German Requiem, Britten’s War Requiem, and Henze’s Symphony No. 9, all conducted by Kurt Masur, as well as the Grammy-nominated Sweeney Todd, conducted by Andrew Litton. He is featured on the DVDs The Organistas and Creating the Stradivarius of Organs. His other releases include The Romantic Organ and Kent Tritle at St. Ignatius Loyola, and recordings of Kevin Oldham’s Organ Symphony No. 1; Duruflé’s Suite for Organ, Op. 5; and works played on the Noack tracker organ at the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow.

Mr. Tritle performs regularly as an organ recitalist in Europe and across the United States. Recital venues have included the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Zurich’s Tonhalle, Church of St. Sulpice in Paris, King’s College (Cambridge), Westminster Abbey, and St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague.

Kent Tritle is one of America’s leading choral conductors. Called “the brightest star in New York’s choral music world” by The New York Times, he is also music director of the Oratorio Society of New York and of Musica Sacra, and director of choral activities at the Manhattan School of Music. In more than 150 concerts presented by the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space series from 1989 to 2011, Kent Tritle conducted the Choir and Orchestra of St. Ignatius Loyola in a broad repertoire of sacred works, from Renaissance masses and oratorio masterworks to premieres by notable living composers, earning praise for building the choir and the concert series into one of the highlights of the New York concert scene. From 1996 to 2004, Mr. Tritle was music director of the Emmy-nominated Dessoff Choirs. He also hosted The Choral Mix with Kent Tritle, a weekly radio program devoted to the vibrant world of choral music on New York’s WQXR from 2010 to 2014.

Kent Tritle has made more than a dozen recordings on the Telarc, AMDG, Epiphany, Gothic, VAI, and MSR Classics labels. Among his most recent are two with Musica Sacra. The first, Eternal Reflections: Choral Music of Robert Paterson, is a 2015 release about which Gramophone magazine said: “As shaped by Music Director Kent Tritle, the myriad hues, lyricism and nobility in Paterson’s music emerge in all their splendour. The choristers of Musica Sacra lift their lines from the page, bringing passionate and lucid life to the varied challenges.” The second is Messages to Myself, an acclaimed recording of five new works by Daniel Brewbaker, Michael Gilbertson, Zachary Patten, Behzad Ranjbaran, and Christopher Theofanidis. In 2013 Mr. Tritle led a recording of Juraj Filas’s Requiem, Oratio Spei, dedicated to the victims of 9/11, with the Prague Symphony Orchestra; vocal soloists Ana María Martínez, Matthew Plenk, and Filip Bandzak; and the Kühn Choir.

Kent Tritle holds graduate and undergraduate degrees from The Juilliard School in organ performance and choral conducting. He has been featured on ABC World News Tonight, National Public Radio, and Minnesota Public Radio, as well as in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
