Jaap van Zweden

Over the last decade, conductor Jaap van Zweden has become an international presence on three continents. This season marks a major milestone as he completes his ten-year tenure as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and simultaneously is Music Director Designate in New York, anticipating his inaugural season (2018/19) as the 26th Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. He continues as Music Director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, a post he has held since 2012.

Jaap van Zweden is a regular guest conductor with the world’s most prestigious ensembles, among them the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Rotterdam Philharmonic and Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. In recent seasons, he has made debuts with the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics. For the summers of 2017-19, he is the principal conductor of the Gstaad Festival Orchestra & Conducting Academy.

His acclaimed recordings include Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, Parsifal, Britten’s War Requiem, Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Petrushka, and the complete symphonic cycles of Beethoven and Brahms, along with a cycle of Bruckner symphonies. Currently, with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, he has embarked on a four-year project to conduct and record the complete Wagner Ring Cycle for Naxos.

Born in Amsterdam, Jaap van Zweden was the youngest ever concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He began his conducting career in 1995 and in 2012 was named Musical America's Conductor of the Year. In 1997, he and his wife Aaltje established the Papageno Foundation. The Foundation supports families of children with autism.
