Jan Latham-Koenig is one of the most exciting and engaging conductors working in Europe today. As Music Director of l’Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg he built it into one of Europe’s most prestigious and active orchestras, giving over 100 concert performances and, with Opéra du Rhin, numerous operas each season. They scored a major success with their critically acclaimed DVD release of Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites, which received the Diapason d’Or de l’Année, and a rosette in the new Penguin Guide to Compact Discs. Strasbourg has grown increasingly important as a European centre of culture and business, as the quality of their orchestra attests, and they have cultivated a captive musical audience.
