Welcome, Louis Langrée!

Named Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra starting in the 2013-14 season, the French conductor Louis Langrée is also Music Director of the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center in New York (a position he has held since 2002) and Chief Conductor of the Camerata Salzburg.   His first concert as Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will include a performance of Copland’s A Lincoln Portrait (narrated by Dr Maya Angelou). During the season he will also conduct world premiere performances by Nico Muhly and David Lang and works by Brahms, Prokofiev, Ravel, Scriabin and Jennifer Higdon.  His collaboration with the Camerata Salzburg will include concerts in Berlin, Baden-Baden, Vienna, Salzburg, Naples and Bucharest. During the 2013/14 season Louis will make his debut with the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich (Don Giovanni) and the Wiener Symphoniker at the Konzerthaus in Vienna. He will also continue his regular appearances with the Wiener Staatsoper (La Traviata), Opéra Comique in Paris (Pelléas et Mélisande).

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is a dynamic ensemble of some of the world’s finest musicians. The fifth oldest symphony orchestra in the United States and the oldest orchestra in Ohio, the CSO has played a leading role in the cultural life of Greater Cincinnati and the Midwest since its founding in 1895.

Over the years, the CSO has built a reputation as one of the world’s foremost orchestras and a champion of the new music of its day. The CSO has been home to the American premieres of works by such composers as Debussy, Ravel and Bartók, and has commissioned works that have since become mainstays of the classical repertoire, including Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. The CSO was the first orchestra to be broadcast to a national radio audience (1921) and the third orchestra to record (1917). Today, the orchestra continues to commission new works and to program an impressive array of music.
