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 as a champion of contemporary composers, an ingenious and adventurous programmer, and a masterful communicator. 

Following a fall 2018 European tour with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Robertson kicks off his valedictory 2019 season as its chief conductor and artistic director. In the 2018–19 season, he returns to Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, BBC Symphony, Bavarian Radio Symphony, and Czech Philharmonic orchestras. He continues his collaboration with the New York Philharmonic, and conducts the Toronto, Montreal, Cincinnati, and Dallas symphony orchestras and the Juilliard Orchestra, where he begins his tenure as director of conducting studies, distinguished visiting professor. 

Mr. Robertson recently completed his transformative 13-year tenure as music director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, where he solidified its status as one of the nation’s most enduring and innovative ensembles, established fruitful relationships with a spectrum of artists, and garnered a 2014 Grammy Award for the Nonesuch release of John Adams’s City Noir.

He has served in artistic leadership positions at the Orchestre national de Lyon; as a protégé of Pierre Boulez at the Ensemble Intercontemporain; as principal guest conductor at the BBC Symphony Orchestra; and as a Perspectives Artist at Carnegie Hall, where he has conducted numerous orchestras. He appears regularly with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and other major European orchestras and festivals.

In the spring of 2018, Mr. Robertson built upon his deep relationship with The Metropolitan Opera, conducting the premiere of Phelim McDermott’s celebrated production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. Since his 1996 debut in Janáček’s The Makropulos Case, he has conducted a breathtaking range of projects, including The Met premiere of John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer (2014), the 2016 revival of Janáček’s Jenůfa, and many favorites. 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.

David Robertson is the recipient of numerous musical and artistic awards, and in 2010 was made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the Government of France. He is devoted to supporting young musicians and has worked with students at festivals ranging from Aspen to Tanglewood to Lucerne.
