The French conductor Ludovic Morlot has been Music Director of the Seattle Symphony since 2011. Amongst the many highlights of his tenure, the orchestra has won two Grammy Awards and gave an exhilarating performance at Carnegie Hall in 2014, as reported in the The New York Times: “The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colors and tremulous energy.”
Highlights of Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s 2014/15 season include a Royal Festival Hall concert and US tour with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Jurowski.
Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s performances are generously underwritten by James and Sherry Raisbeck through the Seattle Symphony’s Guest Artists Circle.
