Leonard Slatkin is Music Director of both the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre National de Lyon, France. During the 2012-13 season he led the DSO in highly acclaimed concerts at Carnegie Hall, including one concert in which all four Charles Ives symphonies were presented in a single evening; directed the Orchestre National de Lyon in a triumphant Paris concert of Ravel’s L’heure espangole and L’enfant et les sortilèges; and celebrated Rachmaninoff’s 140th anniversary with Denis Matsuev and the State Symphony of Russia in Moscow.


During the 2013-14 season, Maestro Slatkin will conduct at Penderecki’s 80th birthday celebration in Warsaw, record with Anne-Akiko Myers and the London Symphony, and appear with the Chicago Symphony, the Pittsburgh Symphony, the St. Louis Symphony and the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood.


Slatkin’s more than 100 recordings have won seven Grammy awards and earned 64 nominations. With the Orchestre National de Lyon he has embarked on recording cycles of the Rachmaninoff piano concerti with Olga Kern and the symphonic works of Maurice Ravel and Hector Berlioz. With the Detroit Symphony he has made available a digital box set of the Beethoven symphonies and plans to release the concerti and symphonies of Tchaikovsky in the future.


Slatkin has received the USA’s prestigious National Medal of Arts, the American Symphony Orchestra League’s Gold Baton Award and several ASCAP awards. He has earned France’s Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, Austria’s Declaration of Honor in Silver, and honorary doctorates from The Julliard School, Indiana University, Michigan State University and Washington University in St. Louis. He is also the recipient of a 2013 ASCAP Deems Taylor Special Recognition Award for his book, Conducting Business.


Slatkin has served as Music Director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C., and as Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra in London. He has held Principal Guest Conductor positions with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Philharmonia Orchestra of London and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

Founder and director of the National Conducting Institute and the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra, Slatkin continues his conducting and teaching activities at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, the Manhattan School of Music and The Juilliard School.


Born in Los Angeles to a distinguished musical family, he is the son of conductor-violinist Felix Slatkin and cellist Eleanor Aller, founding members of the famed Hollywood String Quartet. He began his musical studies on the violin and studied conducting with his father, followed by Walter Susskind at Aspen and Jean Morel at The Juilliard School.


Orchestre National de Lyon


Offspring of the Société des Grands Concerts de Lyon, founded in 1905 by Georges Martin Witkowski, the Orchestre national de Lyon is justly proud of an illustrious past to which André Cluytens, Charles Munch, Paul Paray and Pierre Monteux in particular have contributed.  


In 1969, following the initiative of the Lyon authorities and on the occasion of the setting up of the regional orchestras by Marcel Landowski, it became a permanent orchestra with 102 musicians under the name "Orchestre philharmonique Rhne-Alpes", with Louis Frémaux as its first musical director (1969-1971). From then on the orchestra was run and supported financially by the City of Lyon, which in 1975 provided it with a concert hall, the Lyon Auditorium. This hall, one of the largest in France with seating for 2,100 people, has enjoyed remarkable acoustics since its total renovation. Since the "Opéra de Lyon Orchestra" was founded in 1983, the renamed "Orchestre national de Lyon" (ONL) has devoted itself to a symphonic repertoire.  


Taking over from Louis Frémaux in 1971, Serge Baudo was in charge of the Orchestra until 1986 and made it a musical force to be reckoned with far beyond its home region. Under the leadership of Emmanuel Krivine, musical director from 1987 until 2000, the ONL continued to increase in artistic stature and to receive international critical acclaim. From September 2000 until June 2004, David Robertson was the ONL Music Director and Artistic Director for the Auditorium. His arrival confirmed the standing attained by the Orchestra and built on it, thanks to a policy of a relevant repertoire that was open to all styles. Jun Mrkl took over from him in September 2005 as Music Director of the Orchestre national de Lyon. Leonard Slatkin became Music Director in September 2011. 

The ONL has also been intensely busy outside of Lyon. The orchestra has played in Japan, in the United States and in Europe on several occasions and is regularly invited to take part in the BBC Proms season in London, in the "Chorégies" in Orange and at the "Cité de la musique" in Paris. Since the Pleyel concert hall (Paris) reopened, the orchestra has performed a concert there every season. 


The Orchestra has worked with many famous artists such as Martha Argerich, Jessye Norman, Kristian Zimerman, Radu Lupu, Yo-Yo Ma, Vadim Repin, Maxim Vengerov, Evgeni Kissin, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Gil Shaham, Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Tabea Zimmermann.  

It has also welcomed great composers such as Luciano Berio or Krzysztof Penderecki, who have come to work on their compositions and then conduct them. The orchestra has also given the first performances in France, in Europe and even in the world of works from the greatest composers of our time amongst them Pierre Boulez, Steve Reich and more recently Marc-André Dalbavie and Thierry Escaich, who was resident composer with the orchestra from 2007 to 2010.
