Harry Christophers

Dirigent

Harry Christophers is known internationally as founder and conductor of The Sixteen as well as a regular guest conductor for many of the major symphony orchestras and opera companies worldwide. He has directed The Sixteen and its orchestra, The Symphony of Harmony and Invention, throughout Europe, America and the Far East. He has performed at some of the world's most prestigious festivals including Salzburg, Mostly Mozart in New York, the BBC Promenade Concerts, the Prague Spring Festival and in Vienna's Musikverein, Sydney Opera House and Tokyo Opera City, gaining a distinguished reputation for his work in Renaissance, Baroque and 20th century music.

He has made a significant contribution to the recording catalogue (already comprising some 80 titles) for which he has won numerous awards including a Grand Prix du Disque for Handel's Messiah, numerous Schallplattenkritik, the coveted Gramophone Award for Early Music and, most recently, the prestigious Classical Brit Award 2005 for his disc entitled Renaissance. In 2000 he instituted a ‘Choral Pilgrimage’, a national tour of English cathedrals from York to Canterbury in music from the pre-Reformation, as The Sixteen’s contribution to the millennium celebrations. It raised awareness of this historic repertoire so successfully that the Choral Pilgrimage in the UK is now central to the annual artistic programme. The fifth Choral Pilgrimage in 2005 celebrates the anniversaries of Tallis and Tippett. In 2004 he also started the Handel in Oxford Festival, an annual long weekend indulging in the genius of this great composer. Future engagements with his choir and orchestra include the Barbican’s Mostly Mozart Festival, tours of the USA and Japan and a tour of Spain with Mozart’s C Minor Mass.

“As time goes by, I find Harry Christophers’ music-making more and more captivating” – BBC Radio 3. As a guest conductor, Harry Christophers enjoys a very special partnership with the BBC Philharmonic with which he will tour Spain in November 2006. This has included a range of projects: a highly-acclaimed BBC Proms performance of Fauré’s Requiem, a disc of American-inspired works by Ives, Stravinsky, Poulenc and Tippett which won the Diapason d'Or 1996, and concerts at the Bridgewater Hall, including Haydn’s Creation, Beethoven’s Mass in C and Britten's St Nicholas. He is also a regular guest conductor with the Deutsches Kammerphilharmonie, Northern Sinfonia, City of London Sinfonia, English Chamber Orchestra and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, who have all benefited from his dynamic brand of programming. He recently made his debut with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the Hallé and the London Symphony Orchestra in their centenary season. This year he will make his debut with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.

“It is difficult to imagine any conductor other than Harry Christophers’ coming up with a programme like this, let alone conducting it with such many-sided authority.” – The Times

Increasingly busy in opera Harry Christophers began a Monteverdi cycle in 1998 with a new production for Lisbon Opera House of Il Ritorno d'Ulisse, following his success there with Gluck's Orfeo in 1996. In 2000 he conducted Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte for the Lisbon Opera as well as Purcell’s King Arthur and Rameau’s Platée and made an acclaimed debut with English National Opera, conducting Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppea. He has since conducted productions of Gluck’s Orfeo and Handel's Ariodante at ENO as well as the UK premiere of Messager's opera Fortunio for Grange Park Opera. After the outstanding success of Handel’s Semele and Hercules at Buxton Opera in past seasons, he returned this year to conduct a new production of Mozart’s Ascanio in Alba. In 2006, Mozart's anniversary year, he will be conducting a new production of Mitridate for the Granada Festival.
