Biography

The Bern Symphony Orchestra, the soloist and the conductor were in perfect unison. The way he gave each instrumental section space, created balance and beat precisely was exemplary.
DER BUND, Peter König, 5/3/2016

Victor Aviat launched his international career as a finalist of the Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award in 2014. Since then, he has won praise for a series of debuts with major orchestras. In the past two seasons he has gained experience of a broad repertoire as well as the different aspects of everyday orchestral life through his position as Young Conductor in Association at the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. In addition to his regular concerts, he seized the opportunity to step in at short notice for Vassily Sinaisky, leading a brilliant performance of Shostakovich’s 5th Symphony.

In the 2018/19 season Victor Aviat will return to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and make debuts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestre national des Pays de la Loire, the Sinfonia Lahti as well as the Orchestre d’Auvergne. He has also been invited back to conduct the Aarhus Symfoniorkester.

One of his great successes last season was his concert with the MAV Symphony Orchestra, where he took over a concert for Dmitri Jurowski at short notice. He has also made guest appearances with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, Orchestre National de Montpellier, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Orchestre National de Lille, Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne, Bern Symphony Orchestra, and the Bilkent Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, he gave a series of concerts with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, where he was formerly Principal Oboe and Assistant to Iván Fischer. He attracted much attention for his work in a production of Offenbach’s lost opera Le Roi Carotte. Working together with director Laurent Pelly and publishers Boosey & Hawkes, Victor Aviat led this restored opera at the Opéra de Lyon, from where it was broadcast on television and radio. The production was very well-received by European critics and was named Best Production of a Rediscovered Work at the International Opera Awards 2016.


Born in 1982 in Montpellier, Victor Aviat studied oboe, piano, organ and composition in Paris, Geneva and Zurich. He decided to devote himself to a career in conducting in 2009, encouraged by Franz Welser-Möst, before which he was an oboist in the Karajan Academy of the Berlin Philharmonic, Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Zurich Opera House. He studied conducting with Professor Ulrich Windfuhr at Leipzig University of Music and Drama, and Professor Johannes Schläfli at Zurich University of the Arts. Whilst studying, he founded Orchestra Zurich, a project orchestra that draws together musicians from the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, Zurich Opera House Orchestra and Zurich Chamber Orchestra, focused on programmes based around the First and Second Viennese Schools. During this time he worked closely with Claudio Abbado, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Emmanuel Krivine and Iván Fischer – four musicians who actively supported his development as a conductor, and musically influenced him in their own ways.

Reviews

Aviat, the BSO's Young Conductor in Association was a delight at the podium, charming, wonderfully self-effacing and incredibly expressive.
www.bournemouthecho.co.uk, Andy Martin, 02/01/2018

Aviat’s reading of the opening movement provided for a very strongly rhythmic march contrasted with beautifully lyrical strings, with especially fine work from the violas. The commedia dell ’arte atmosphere of the scherzo second movement (was Shostakovich lampooning authority?) was cleverly, sardonically communicated. The lovely Largo third movement again showed off the BSO strings, multi-divided, to perfection; there were also fine contributions from the BSO’s harp and flute. Shattering, explosive percussion and brass were to the fore in the tremendously exciting finale.
www.seenandheard-international.com, Ian Lace, 06/12/2017

The orchestra and chorus, led with care by the young Victor Aviat, played and sang with enchanting brio and crispness.
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Eleonore Büning, 27/12/2015

Under the direction of the young and energetic conductor Victor Aviat all of the singers shone.
Die Presse, Robert Quitta, 20/12/2015

The young conductor Victor Aviat was a conscientious, sensitive and spirited advocate of the composer.
Neue Musikzeitung, Dieter David Scholz, 15/12/2015
