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.
