Marc Soustrot, our favourite conductor from France, was in top form as usual – and the musicians love him for this […]. And for something else, which other conductors […] rarely give: heart.
Marc Soustrot has broad experience and expertise in the major works of the classical and Romantic repertoire, as well as in the music of Bach and contemporary works. He is particularly beloved by audiences for his interpretations of French orchestral compositions. He has been the artistic director and chief conductor of the Orchestre Philharmonique des Pays de la Loire (1976–1994), the Beethoven Orchester Bonn (1995–2003), Het Brabants Orkest Eindhoven (1996–2006) and the Malmö Symphony Orchestra (2011-2019). Marc Soustrot is chief conductor of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, which he has led since the 2015/16 season. From the 2021/22 season he has been appointed as Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla.
