French-born Alexandre Bloch assumed the position of Music Director of Orchestre National de Lille (ONL) at the start of the 2016/17 season and has been Principal Guest Conductor of Düsseldorfer Symphoniker since September 2015.
Plans for the 2019/20 season with Lille include performances at the Bucharest Festival, the continuation of their Mahler Cycle (Symphonies 6, 7, 8 and 9) in Lille and performances of Puccini’s Turandot. The partnership’s strong commitment to contemporary music continues, including a new co-commission with the London Philharmonic Orchestra of a new work by celebrated Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg. January 2020 saw the orchestra’s first UK tour in many years, including concerts in London, Leeds, Birmingham, Sheffield and Sage Gateshead. Guest conducting includes first visits to Het Gelders Orkest and MDR Sinfonieorchester, alongside return visits to Turku Philharmonic, Royal Northern Sinfonia and Dusseldorfer Symphoniker, where programmes include Buckner’s Symphony No. 7 and collaboration with international renowned soloists including Till Fellner and Alexej Gerassimez.
