Jonathan Nott

Guillaume Megevand

Well known for the power, vigour and clarity of his interpretations of Mahler’s works, Jonathan Nott was invited in 2014 to conduct the musicians of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in a performance of Mahler’s Seventh Symphony. As a result of this very promising first meeting, he was appointed as Music and Artistic Director of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande as from January 2017.

After studying music at the University of Cambridge, singing and flute at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and conducting in London, he began his career at the opera houses in Frankfurt and Wiesbaden where he conducted all major works of the repertoire including Wagner’s complete Ring cycle.

The year 1997 marked the beginning of a special relationship with Switzerland: as principal conductor of the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra he took an active part in the inaugural period of the new KKL where he also performed with the Ensemble Intercontemporain founded by Pierre Boulez, and of which he was the music director from 2000 to 2003.

His sixteen years as principal conductor of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra from 2000 until 2016 were filled with varied and enriching experiences: he created artist-in-residence programmes, went on several international tours with the orchestra, he received a Midem Award in 2010 for his recording of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony, and he launched the Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition from which have emerged some of today’s world famous conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel and Lahav Shani.  Moreover Jonathan Nott has also been music director of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra since 2014.

He brings inspiration to young artists through his loyal and long term commitment to the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie and to the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER.

Jonathan Nott has a large catalogue of highly acclaimed recordings, including Ligeti’s complete orchestral works performed by the Berlin Philharmonic, the entire Schubert and Mahler Symphonies played by the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Jonas Kaufmann as soloist. His first recording with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande of works by Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy and Gyorgy Ligeti was released by PentaTone in September 2018.

Jonathan Nott appears with the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER already for the third time after 2009 and 2015.
