Jean-Christophe Spinosi (Conductor)

Some people see him as the ďenfant terribleĒ of classical musicÖ while to others heís a true choreographer-musician gifted with a rhythmical pulse and physical exaltation that are beyond the norm.

From the beginning he interprets a very wide repertoire extending from Baroque music to contemporary on both modern and traditional instruments.

In 1991 he created the Ensemble Matheus in Brest, an orchestra which will accompany him throughout the world.

In 2005, his enthusiasm in researching original repertoire led the Ensemble Matheusto make a series of recordings devoted to Vivaldi, a composer whose masterpieces were then absent from the discography: they produced several albums and four operas which quickly became legendary, arousing an excited following throughout the world. Simultaneously, he continues to†interpret the classical and romantic repertoire as well as many surprising and varied pieces from the 20th and 21st centuries from Chostakovitch to Herbie Hancock, Stravinsky or Prokofiev to George Crumb, Arvo Pärt, Nicolas Bacri, Henryk Górecki, John Cage or Guillaume Connesson..

Different productions have since enabled Jean-Christophe Spinosi to enjoy the privilege of musical friendships with great artists such as Cecilia Bartoli, Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Philippe Jaroussky, with whom he recorded the album†Heroesfor EMI-Virgin Classics, a disc whose sales achieved triple-gold status.

Jean-Christophe Spinosi conducts†every season†since 2007 new opera productions with the Ensemble Matheus†at the Théâtre du Châtelet and regularly performs at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, the Theater an der Wien or the Wiener Staatsoper.

For several years he has worked with some of the most imaginative stage-directors on the international scene, among them Pierrick Sorin (for Rossiniís†La Pietra del Paragone†in 2007 and 2014), Oleg Kulik (for Monteverdiís†Vespers for the Blessed Virgin†in 2009), or again Claus Guth (for Handelís†Messiahat the Theater an der Wien, 2009), Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser (for Rossiniís†Otello†at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and Salzburg Festival in 2014).

Jean-Christophe Spinosi has worked regularly with numerous orchestras including the Wiener Staatsoper, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Radio Sinfonieorchester in Frankfurt, the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the New Japan Philharmonic, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester from Berlin, the Orquesta de Castilla y León, the Wiener Symphoniker, the Radio-Symphonieorchester from Vienna, and the Orquesta Nacional de España; other notable collaborations include his work with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the NDR Radiophilharmonie in Hanover, the Mozarteum Orchester in Salzburg, the Verbier Festival Orchestra and the Orchestre de Paris.

After their triumph at the Theater an der Wien in February 2013 in†Le Comte Ory, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and Cecilia Bartoli continue their close collaboration†with three more Rossini operas,††Otello†at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and at the Salzburg Festival,†La Cenerentola†at the Salzburg Festival and†Líitaliana in Algeri†in Dortmund.††The international press present in Salzburg unanimously praised their musicality and their audacious interpretation of Rossini operas.

Jean-Christophe Spinosi started the season 2014-2015 at the Stockholm Artipelag with the Ensemble Matheus with a new production of Handelís†Serse, to be showed in Versailles next June.
Planned with the Ensemble Matheus: Mozartís†Il Re Pastore†at the Théâtre du Châtelet,†Líincoronazione di Poppea†at the Theater an der Wien staged by Claus Guth, Handelís†Messiah†and Beethovenís†Missa Solemnis, to be performed on European tour.†
At the same time, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, who just conducted a new production of Bizetís†Les Pêcheurs de perles†at the Theater an der Wien, will be conducting†Die Zauberflöte†at the Hamburg Opera,†Il Barbiere di Siviglia†at the Wiener Staatsoper and†Le Comte Ory†at the Zurich Opera with Cecilia Bartoli.
