PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA

Founded in 1900, The Philadelphia Orchestra has distinguished itself as one of the leading orchestras in the world through over a century of acclaimed performances, historic international tours, bestselling recordings, and its unprecedented record of innovation in recording technologies and outreach. The orchestra has maintained unity in artistic leadership with only seven music directors throughout its history: Fritz Scheel (1900–07), Carl Pohlig (1907–12), Leopold Stokowski (1912–41), Eugene Ormandy (1936–80), Riccardo Muti (1980–92), Wolfgang Sawallisch (1993–2003), and Christoph Eschenbach (2003–08).

This rich tradition is carried on by Charles Dutoit, who was appointed chief conductor and artistic adviser of The Philadelphia Orchestra from the 2008–09 season through the 2011–12 season. Mr Dutoit has a long-standing relationship with the orchestra, having made his début with the ensemble in 1980. As chief conductor and artistic adviser, he led the orchestra in Philadelphia as well as at Carnegie Hall and on tour.
