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. 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.
This season Ludovic will make his subscription debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra and return to the Los Angeles, BBC, Seoul and Bergen Philharmonic and Vienna Symphony Orchestras. Ludovic is an Associate Artist of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra with whom he has had a close relationship over many years. Ludovic has a strong commitment to working with young musicians and will this season conduct the National Youth Orchestra of China on their European tour and student orchestras at Yale University, the Royal Academy of Music in London and at the Aspen Festival.
