Sir Andrew Davis CBE appointed Liverpool Philharmonic Conductor Emeritus

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic
Sir Andrew Davis has accepted the title of Conductor Emeritus of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO).
The title was previously bestowed upon Vernon Handley (1997-2008) and Sir Charles Mackerras (2009-10), and reflects the RLPO’s relationships with some of today’s leading musicians.
Sir Andrew’s association with the RLPO dates back to the 1960s. He has conducted the ensemble at landmark events, including the 150th anniversary concert in Feburary 1991 and in May 2008, in a special performance as part of the city’s European Capital of Culture year.
Sir Andrew returns to the City this month to conduct the RLPO and Choir and guest soloists Erin Wall and Catherine Wyn-Rogers in Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 ‘Resurrection’ (29 & 30 April).
On his appointment Maestro Davis said: ‘I have always considered the beginning of my career to be my participation in the Seminar for Young British Conductors with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in 1969. So it was with the greatest happiness that I learned of the Orchestra’s wish to name me Conductor Emeritus. I am deeply touched and honoured by this gift and relish the prospect of making music regularly in and for this wonderfully vibrant city, of which the Orchestra is the finest jewel.’
