HOWARD GRIFFITHS

Howard Griffiths was artistic director and chief conductor of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra for ten years, becoming freelance in 2006. He was born in England and studied at the Royal College of Music in London. Since taking up residence in Switzerland in 1981, he has performed as guest conductor with many leading orchestras worldwide including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London, the Orchestre National de France, the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of the Moscow Radio, Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Finland, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Montpellier, the Warsaw Philharmonic, the Symphony Orchestra Basel, London Mozart Players, Orquesta Nacional de España, Slovakian Radio Symphony Orchestra, NDR and SWF orchestras in Germany and the Polish Chamber Orchestra. From 1994 to 1997 he was principal guest conductor of the Oxford Orchestra da Camera. Howard Griffiths collaborates on a regular basis with the English Chamber Orchestra and the Northern Sinfonia of England, with whom he has given many concerts, made many recordings and undertaken several tours. With the Collegium Novum Zurich, which specialises in contemporary music, first performances by Howard Griffiths include the Swiss première of Hans Werner Henze’s Requiem in the presence of the composer. He has also worked closely with Sofia Gubaidulina, George Crumb, Arvo Pärt and Mauricio Kagel. More than sixty recordings so far by Howard Griffiths under various labels bear witness to his extremely broad artistic profile. These include, for example, works by contemporary Swiss and Turkish composers, as well as first recordings of rediscovered eighteenth and nineteenth century music.
