Peter Oundjian, conductor
A dynamic presence in the conducting world, Peter Oundjian is renowned for his probing musicality, collaborative spirit and engaging personality.
The 2018-19 season includes debuts with the Indianapolis and New Zealand symphonies and return engagements with the St. Louis, Baltimore, Atlanta, Utah, Colorado and New World symphonies, as well as the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. He completes his second season as Artistic Advisor of the Colorado Music Festival.
2017-18 marked Mr. Oundjian’s 14th and final season as Music Director of the Toronto Symphony (TSO). His appointment in 2004 reinvigorated the orchestra with recordings, tours and acclaimed, innovative programming, as well as extensive audience growth, significantly strengthening the ensemble’s presence in the world. In 2014 he led the TSO on a tour of Europe, which included a sold-out performance at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and the first performance of a North American orchestra at Reykjavík’s Harpa. In the 2016-17 season, Mr. Oundjian led the TSO on a major tour of Israel and Europe.
From 2012 to 2018, Mr. Oundjian was Music Director of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Under his baton, the orchestra toured China, the U.S. and across Europe. Together they recorded extensively for Sony and Chandos.
Few conductors bring such musicianship and engagement to the world’s great podiums—from Berlin, Amsterdam and Tel Aviv, to New York, Chicago and Sydney. Mr. Oundjian has also appeared at some of the great annual gatherings of music and music-lovers: from the BBC Proms and the Prague Spring Festival, to the Edinburgh Festival and The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Mozart Festival, where he was Artistic Director from 2003 to 2005.
Mr. Oundjian was Principal Guest Conductor of the Detroit Symphony from 2006 to 2010 and Artistic Director of the Caramoor International Music Festival in New York from 1997 to 2007. Since 1981 he has been a visiting professor at the Yale School of Music and earned the university’s Sanford Medal for distinguished service to music in 2013.
