The Orchestre National de France was founded in 1934 to create a means of serving French music and symphonic repertoire. The list of its conductors and of the soloists it has accompanied offers further proof, were that necessary, of its commitment to excellence. Since 2008 Daniele Gatti has been the orchestra’s music director. He and the orchestra have explored the entire symphonic repertoire, from major pieces by French composers such as Debussy and Ravel, to the Austro-German repertoire of Brahms, Beethoven and Mahler, performing the latter’s complete symphonies and Lieder. They are renowned for their exploration of Italian lyric repertoire, and particularly for their interpretation of Verdi’s Falstaff. Among other activities, they are in residency each season at Vienna’s Musikverein.
