Conductor Makes the Old New and the New Newer
The New York Times

A consummate musician, masterful programmer and dynamic presence, American maestro David Robertson has established himself as one of today’s most sought-after conductors. A passionate and compelling communicator with an extensive orchestral and operatic repertoire, he has forged close relationships with major orchestras around the world through his exhilarating music-making and stimulating ideas. In fall 2015, Robertson launched his 11th season as Music Director of the 136-year-old St. Louis Symphony. In January 2016, David Robertson embarks on his third year as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Australia.

Highlights of the 2015-16 season with the St. Louis Symphony include a California tour in January and February, featuring Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles... (From the Canyons to the Stars...), with accompanying video imagery by photographer Deborah O’Grady in an international co-commission with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra et al. Also on the California tour, soloist Timothy McAllister performs John Adams’ Saxophone Concerto. The concerto was part of the latest Symphony recording, City Noir, on Nonesuch, which received the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Orchestral Performance. Other highlights for Robertson and the St. Louis Symphony are the U.S. premiere of Tan Dun’s Contrabass Concerto: The Wolf, featuring Principal Double Bass Erik Harris, and John Adams’ most recent symphony for violin, Scheherazade.2, performed by Leila Josefowicz. The Scheherazade.2 performances are being recorded live by Nonesuch for future release.
