Germany's Württemberg Philharmonic Appoints New Chief Conductor
French conductor Ariane Matiakh will assume the three-year role starting in the 2022-2023 season
Studying orchestral conducting in Vienna, Matiakh first served at the Opéra de Montpellier, where she worked closely with James Conlon, Armin Jordan, Emmanuel Krivine, and Alain Altinoglu, among others.
From 2018-2020, she held the post of General Music Director of the Staatskapelle Halle.
She often appears as guest conductor with leading ensembles such as the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Wiener Symphoniker, The ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien, the Orchestre de Paris, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Dresden Philharmonic.
In the 2021/22 season, she will conduct orchestras including the HR-Sinfonieorchester, the Sinfonieorchester Basel, the Swedish Radio Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the Orchestre de l’Opéra de Bordeaux, as well as the Orchestre National Avignon-Provence.
In recognition of her achievements in French musical life and representing French culture abroad, Matiakh was awarded the “Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” by the French ministry of culture in 2014.
"Congratulations! We are extremely looking forward to an inspiring joint, artistic future," the Württemberg Philharmonic wrote on their social media.
