Following eight years as Music Director, Ludovic Morlot is now Conductor Emeritus of the Seattle Symphony. Ludovic’s innovative programming encompassed not only his choice of repertoire, but theatrical productions and performances outside the traditional concert hall space. There were numerous collaborations with musicians from different genres, commissions and world premieres. Under Ludovic’s baton, 19 recordings were released under the Seattle Symphony Media label, the orchestra received five Grammy Awards, and was named Gramophone’s 2018 Orchestra of the Year.
Since 2019 Ludovic is an Associate Artist of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra with whom he has had a close relationship over many years. Ludovic is also Artistic Director and a founding member of the National Youth Orchestra of China. In 2019 he led their European Tour, having conducted their inaugural concerts in New York and China two years earlier.
This season Ludovic makes his debut with Orchestre de Paris, San Francisco Symphony, Barcelona Symphony and the Royal Scottish National Orchestras, and makes return visits to the Bergen Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony, Iceland Symphony and the West Australian Symphony Orchestras.
