Orchestre de Paris

Biography

France’s premier symphony orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris gives over one hundred concerts in Paris each season or during its international tours. Successor to the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire which was founded in 1828, the Orchestre de Paris gave its inaugural concert in November 1967 conducted by its first Musical Director, Charles Munch. The likes of Herbert von Karajan, Sir Georg Solti, Daniel Barenboim, Semyon Bychkov, Christoph von Dohnányi, Christoph Eschenbach, Paavo Järvi, and Daniel Harding have succeeded Munch over the years, with the exceptional young Klaus Mäkelä set to take over as musical director in 2022.
