Ludovic Morlot is Music Director of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra

French conductor Ludovic Morlot is in his seventh season as Music Director of the Seattle Symphony. There have been many highlights during his first five seasons in this position, including an exhilarating performance at Carnegie Hall in May 2014, as reported in The New York Times: “The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colors and tremulous energy.”

During the 2017/18 season Ludovic and the Seattle Symphony will continue on their incredible musical journey, focusing particularly on the music of Berlioz, Stravinsky and Bernstein. In addition, they will be presenting some exciting new works by John Luther Adams and David Lang and welcoming Alexandra Gardner for a residency programme. The orchestra will also be performing on tour in California, including a two-day residency at the University of California, Berkeley. The orchestra have many successful recordings, available on their own label, Seattle Symphony Media.  A box set of music by Dutilleux was recently released to mark the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
