Winner of the 1999 Leeds Conductor’s Competition, Scottish-born Garry Walker studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. In October 1999, at very short notice, he replaced an indisposed Daniele Gatti in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s opening concert of their Barbican season. Thus began an ongoing relationship leading to his appointment as permanent guest conductor, a post he has now relinquished. Garry Walker was principal guest conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra from 2003–2007, principal conductor of the Paragon Ensemble and now enjoys a close association with Red Note Ensemble, Scotland’s leading contemporary music ensemble. He has worked with orchestras across the world including all the BBC Orchestras, the Hallé, the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Amsterdam Nieuw Ensemble, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Musikkollegium Winterthur, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the Utah Symphony Orchestra. An experienced opera conductor, Garry Walker conducted David McVicar’s production of Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw and Raskatov’s A Dog’s Heart for English National Opera, Cimarosa’s The Secret Marriage for Scottish Opera and Poulenc’s La Voix Humaine at the Linbury Studio Theatre at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Abroad he has conducted Curlew River for Lyon Opera and a new production by Calixto Bieito of Hosakawa’s Hanjo at the Ruhr Triennale.
