Biography
Stéphane Denève is Music Director of the Brussels Philharmonic. With the orchestra he is at the same time launching CffOR (Centre for Future Orchestral Repertoire) : an extensive online database dedicated to 21st-century compositions for orchestra with chances at attaining ‘repertoire status’.

Meanwhile, Stéphane Denève remains Principal Guest Conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra. From 2005 to 2012 he was the Music Director of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO), and from 2011 to 2016 the Music Director of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR). Although he is at home in a very wide repertoire, Denève has great affinity for French music and is particularly committed to 21st-century music.

In the field of opera, Stéphane Denève has led productions at the Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne Festival, La Scala, Saito Kinen Festival, Gran Teatro de Liceu, Dutch National Opera, La Monnaie, and at the Opéra National de Paris.

Recent engagements in Europe and Asia have included appearances with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony, Munich Philharmonic, NHK Symphony, Vienna Symphony, Orchestra Sinfonica dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Orchestre National de France, London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin and Swedish Radio Symphony.

In North America he made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2012 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, with whom he is a frequent guest both in Boston and at Tanglewood, and he appears regularly with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, The Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony. He made his New York Philharmonic debut in 2015. He enjoys close relationships with many of the world’s leading solo artists, including Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Leif Ove Andsnes, Yo-Yo Ma, Lang Lang, Leonidas Kavakos, Nikolaj Znaider, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Gil Shaham, James Ehnes, Emanuel Ax, Lars Vogt, Nikolaï Lugansky, Paul Lewis, Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn, Renaud and Gautier Capuçon.

As a recording artist, he has won critical acclaim for his recordings of the works of Poulenc, Debussy, Ravel, Roussel, Franck and Connesson. He is a triple winner of the Diapason d’Or de l’année (2007, 2012 and 2016), has been shortlisted for Gramophone’s Artist of the Year 2012 Award, and is a winner of the International Classical Music Awards 2013.

A graduate and prize-winner of the Paris Conservatoire, Stéphane Denève worked closely in his early career with Sir Georg Solti, Georges Prêtre and Seiji Ozawa. He is committed to inspiring the next generation of musicians and listeners, and works regularly with young people in the programmes of the Boston Symphony’s Tanglewood Music Center and the New World Symphony in Miami.
