Charles Dutoit by CAMI


Charles Dutoit is artistic director and principal conductor of London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; conductor laureate of The Philadelphia Orchestra, a title honoring an artistic collaboration spanning 32 years; and music director emeritus of the NHK Symphony Orchestra, where he was previously principal conductor and later music director.

He recently received the 103rd Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal, one of classical music’s highest honors, founded in 1870 to celebrate the centenary of Beethoven’s birth. Mr. Dutoit served as artistic director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra for 25 years, and was music director of the Orchestre national de France from 1991 to 2001. He performs each season with the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras and the Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, and is a regular guest on stages in London, Berlin, Paris, Munich, Moscow, Sydney, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tokyo.

When still in his early 20s, Charles Dutoit was invited by Herbert von Karajan to conduct the Vienna Staatsoper. He has since conducted at The Metropolitan Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Rome Opera, Buenos Aires’s Teatro Colón, and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden.

Mr. Dutoit’s interest in supporting the younger generation has always held an important place in his career; he has been music director of the Sapporo Pacific Music Festival and Miyazaki International Music Festival in Japan; the Canton International Summer Music Academy in Guangzhou, China; the Lindenbaum Festival in Seoul, South Korea; and the Verbier Festival Orchestra, where he is now conductor emeritus.

His more than 200 recordings have garnered multiple awards and distinctions including two Grammys. In 2014 he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Classical Music Awards. A globetrotter motivated by his passion for history and archaeology, political science, art, and architecture, he has traveled in all 196 nations of the world.

He moved to Berlin to study with Thomas Brandis and Isaac Stern, and was awarded the Prize of the Berlin Academy of Arts. In 1997 Claudio Abbado invited him to become concertmaster of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, which he led for three summers, working with conductors including Abbado, Boulez, Seiji Ozawa, and Franz Welser-Möst.

Mr. Capuçon performs with orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Orchestre national de France, Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, Filarmonica della Scala, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic.

He has built an extensive discography and records exclusively with Erato / Warner Classics. Recent releases include Bartók’s Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 with the London Symphony Orchestra and François-Xavier Roth, works by Brahms and Berg with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Daniel Harding, and chamber music by Debussy. His latest recording, Au Cinema, was released in October 2018.

In addition to numerous chamber music collaborations, Mr. Capuçon is artistic director of the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad and the Easter Festival in Aix-en-Provence, which he founded in 2013. In 2017 he founded the Lausanne Soloists, comprising current and former students of the Haute École de Musique de Lausanne, where he has held a professorship since 2014.
