ALEXANDRE MYRAT

A French citizen born in Greece, Alexandre Myrat discovered music at the age of 13 and, seven years later, he conducted his first concert with the Orchestra of Monte Carlo. In Paris, he studied conducting under Igor Markevitch, Max Deutsch and Nadia Boulanger. Since 1976, when he conducted the world première of Milhaud’s Oresteia for Radio France, he began a steady collaboration with the French broadcaster, conducting numerous recordings, concerts and many world premières. He has also conducted concerts for the BBC, Österreichischer Rundfunk, Bulgarian Radio and the RTBF (Radio Télévision Belge Francophone). His international career has led him all over the world. Following the establishment of the Picardie Orchestra in 1984, where he was artistic director until 1989, he became known for his interpretation of the works of Mozart. In 1991 he founded La Kamerata, the Athens Megaron in-house orchestra, with whom he has recorded for labels such as EMI, ECM, RCA, Blue Note and Agorà. Three of his recordings have won ‘Recordings Academy’ awards. He is permanent guest conductor of the Târgu Mureș Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2013, he was made a “Chevalier des Arts et Lettres” by the French government. In 2011, he was appointed artistic director of the Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra.
