MARIN ALSOP

Marin Alsop is an inspiring and powerful voice on the international music scene, a music director of vision and distinction who passionately believes that music has the power to change lives. She is recognised across the world for her innovative approach to programming, and for her deep commitment to education and to the development of audiences of all ages. Alsop took up the post of principal conductor of the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra in 2012 and became music director in July 2013. She continues to steer the orchestra in its artistic and creative programming, recording ventures and in its education and outreach activities. Alsop led the orchestra on a European tour in 2012, with acclaimed performances at the BBC Proms in London and at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and they returned to Europe in October 2013, with concerts in Berlin, London, Paris, Salzburg and Vienna. Her outstanding success as music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra since 2007 has been recognised by two extensions in her tenure, now confirmed until 2021. Since 1992 Marin Alsop has been music director of California’s Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, where she has built a devoted audience for new music. Building an orchestra is one of Alsop’s great gifts, and she retains strong links with all of her previous orchestras—the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, where she was principal conductor from 2002 to 2008 and now holds the post of conductor emeritus, and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, where she was music director from 1993 to 2005 and is now music director laureate. In 2008 Marin Alsop became a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and in the following year was chosen as Musical America’s Conductor of the Year. She is the recipient of numerous awards and is the only conductor to receive a MacArthur Fellowship, the award given by the MacArthur Foundation for exceptional creative work. In 2011 Alsop was made an honorary member (Hon RAM) of the Royal Academy of Music, London. In September 2013, Marin Alsop made history as the first female conductor of the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms in London. Her extensive discography, which already includes a notable set of Brahms symphonies with the London Philharmonic Orchestra [8.557428, 8.557429, 8.557430, 8.570233], is further distinguished by a new Dvořák series [8.570995, 8.572112, 8.570714], which has been highly praised. Recent recordings include Bernstein’s Mass [8.559622-23] (Editor’s Choice at the 2010 Gramophone Awards) and John Adams’s Nixon in China [8.669022-24], to which the Financial Times gave five stars, calling it an “incandescent performance”.

Born in New York City, Marin Alsop attended Yale University and received her master’s degree from The Juilliard School. Her conducting career was launched when, in 1989, she was a prizewinner at the Leopold Stokowski International Conducting Competition and in the same year was the first woman to be awarded the Koussevitzky Conducting Prize from the Tanglewood Music Center, where she was a pupil of Leonard Bernstein.
