Conductor and contralto, Nathalie Stutzmann is considered one of the most outstanding musical personalities of our time. Charismatic musicianship, combined with unique rigour, energy and fantasy, characterise her style.
Nathalie has just been announced as the Philadelphia Orchestra’s new Principal Guest Conductor from season 21/22. She is also entering the third season of a highly successful tenure as Chief Conductor of the Kristiansand Symphony, a tenure which has just been extended by a further two seasons, to the end of 22/23.
As a guest conductor, she began the season 20/21 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and returns to them twice during the season. Other guest conducting highlights over the next two seasons include performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, NDR Elbphilharmonie, London Symphony, Orchestre National de Lyon…
Nathalie has also established a strong reputation as an opera conductor. She will open her 21/22 season with a conducting debut at the Metropolitan Opera.
“Nathalie is the real thing. So much love, intensity and sheer technique. We need more conductors like her.”
