Darrell Ang’s triumph at the 50th Besançon International Young Conductor’s Competition, where he took all three top awards, Grand Prize, Audience Prize and Orchestra Prize, launched his international career, leading to the music directorship of the Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne and numerous guest conducting engagements with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre National de Lyon, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano ‘Giuseppe Verdi’, St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, RTVE Symphony Orchestra, Madrid, and the Hong Kong Philharmonic, among others. Three years later Darrell Ang was selected to join the International Conductors’ Academy of the Allianz Cultural Foundation and invited to undertake residencies with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra. He has several recording projects for Naxos Records and ARS Produktion of works by French and Chinese composers. In his native Singapore Darrell Ang became the youngest associate conductor of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and served as music director of the Singapore National Youth Orchestra. His gifts were discovered at the age of four when he began to play violin and piano, then turning also to composition. He went on to study conducting in St Petersburg and then at Yale, where he became its first Conducting Fellow. He is grateful to his mentors Lorin Maazel, Vladimir Jurowski and Esa-Pekka Salonen for their invaluable advice and support.
