Since serving as Resident Conductor alongside the then Music Director Lorin Maazel with The Cleveland Orchestra, Matthias Bamert has been Music Director of the Swiss Radio Orchestra and Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and Associate Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. As Music Director of the London Mozart Players for seven years he masterminded the hugely successful recording series ‘Contemporaries of Mozart’ on Chandos; in 1999, the year of its fiftieth anniversary, he brought the orchestra to the BBC Proms, Vienna, and the Lucerne Festival, and in January 2000 returned with it to Japan. He has worked frequently with the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre national de France, and NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo. As Director of the Glasgow contemporary music festival Musica Nova (1985 – 90), he became known for his innovative programming, a gift further manifested during his tenure as Director of the Lucerne Festival (1992 – 98), when he oversaw the opening of a new concert hall, instituted a new Easter Festival and a new piano festival, and increased the festival’s activities several times over. Matthias Bamert has conducted the world premiere of works by Toru Takemitsu, John Casken, James MacMillan, and Wolfgang Rihm, and recorded more than eighty CDs, many of which have won international prizes.
