CHRISTOPHER LYNDON-GEE

Christopher Lyndon-Gee’s international renown as conductor has been described as “that rare phenomenon: an artist whose spiritual depth and intellectual mastery rise far above the marketing dominated industry that is music today”. His approach on the podium is rooted in his scrupulous, refined, highly regarded work as composer. Honoured as Laureate of the Onassis Foundation, Athens, for his ballet score Il Poeta muore, his music has also won the Adolf Spivakovsky Prize, three ‘Sounds Australian’ awards, and two MacDowell Fellowships. His Overture Intrada Cubana has been widely played in many countries, most recently celebrating Sofia Gubaidulina’s 80th birthday in Poland. He is currently writing a new Violin Concerto for Lithuanian violinist Justina Auškelyte. He is included among the 300 conductors described in Naxos’s 600-page book and CD compilation A to Z of Conductors, covering the entire history of the art form from Hans von Bülow and Arthur Nikisch to the present day. Christopher Lyndon-Gee was nominated for GRAMMY® Awards in 1998 for ‘Best Orchestral Performance’ for the first volume of his groundbreaking series of the complete works of Igor Markevitch (8.570773, originally released on Marco Polo); in 2003 for the world premiere recording of George Rochberg’s Symphony No. 5 on Naxos American Classics (8.559115); and again in 2007 for Hans Werner Henze’s Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 3 (8.557738). Other recordings have been listed among Gramophone magazine’s Editor’s Choice, Fanfare magazine’s Outstanding CDs of the Year, Penguin Guide to Compact Discs’ multiple Rosettes and Key Recordings listings, and he won the Pizzicato prize in Luxembourg. Frequently invited to Poland, at the jubilee 50th Anniversary Warsaw Autumn Festival in 2007 he conducted four world premieres in a single concert – new symphonies by the Slovakian composer Roman Berger; Lithuania’s leading female composer Onutė Narbutaitė; and the Polish composers Jerzy Kornowicz and Alexander Lasoń. Nine years later, Lasoń insisted on this conductor for the world premiere of his Fifth Symphony in 2016; and both the Fourth and the Fifth will feature in a forthcoming Naxos release. Lyndon-Gee studied conducting under Rudolf Schwarz in London and Franco Ferrara in Rome; Leonard Bernstein invited him to study at Tanglewood after hearing him conduct a student concert in Rome. At Tanglewood, he also worked under Maurice Abravanel, Erich Leinsdorf and Kurt Masur. He was Bruno Maderna’s assistant at La Scala, Milan, later becoming second conductor at the Teatro Regio in Turin, and with the RAI orchestra Torino. He co-founded the Ensemble Fase Seconda with composer Lorenzo Ferrero, who premiered dozens of commissioned new works throughout Italy, Germany, France and at many international festivals. As a composer, he studied with Goffredo Petrassi in Rome, Luciano Berio, Sylvano Bussotti, Pierre Boulez and Jean Martinon. Britain’s great musicologist Arthur Hutchings remains a powerful guiding influence, several decades on.
