Mr. Conlon returns to Rotterdam, where he will be conducting the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra once more!
More news will follow ..
This page is dedicated to
James Conlon, one of the great conductors of this century, and the
Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra! You can also find links to other sites about (classical) music and information about my favorite composers.
My love for classical music started during the eighties when I first visited the Rotterdam Philharmonic. At the time James Conlon was the musical director and first conductor. Together they achieved a higher level of performance and became, both orchestra and conductor, well known throughout the world. They gave concerts in all of Western Europe, the Soviet Union, the United States and Japan, bringing a divers repertoire ranging from orchestral symphonies to opera.
After a short interval, following the departure of James Conlon, the orchestra found a new musical director in the person of Valery Gergiev. Gergiev was already first conductor of the Kirov Opera and his star was rising fast. At the moment Gergiev is still attached to the Rotterdam Philharmonic.
The members of the Rotterdam Philharmonic are doing a lot to promote their orchestra and their music, many of them play in ensembles like The Rotterdam Philharmonic Brass or teach music.
