Principal Conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra since 2002, Marin Alsop takes up her position as Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony in 2007/8 – the first woman to head a major American orchestra.

Alsop won the Royal Philharmonic Society Conductor of the Year award in 2002 and BBC Radio 3 Listeners’ Award in 2006, and was named The Gramophone magazine’s “Artist of the Year” in 2003. Her recordings for Naxos include the Brahms Symphonies and Overtures with the London Philharmonic, the complete orchestral works of Samuel Barber with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony with the Colorado Symphony. Acclaimed recordings for Naxos with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra include works by Bernstein, John Adams, Philip Glass, Bartók and Kurt Weill. Alsop’s latest release is 8.559325 Glass: Heroes Symphony.

Hear the Alsop sound. Experience true orchestral tour de force.

“…Alsop gets right to the heart of the ingenious music, which deserves to be as well known to American audiences as any European violin concerto. The conductor illuminates the multiple layers of Bernstein's intense, haunting ballet Facsimile and revels in the prismatic coloring and wit of his late-career Divertimento. Hot stuff.”
