Jiří Bělohlávek is the new principal guest conductor at the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

(This article expired 09.08.2014.)

To mark his official appointment, Bělohlávek will play some of his strongest cards with works by Dvořák, Martinů, Smetana and Janáček. Jiří Bělohlávek made a deep impression with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra with Mahler´s 7th symphony in 2011.

Bĕlohlávek has built a fine reputation for his outstanding interpretations of both symphonic and operatic works by leading Czech composers and equally in works by Central European composers from Mozart to Mahler. He concluded his BBC Symhony Orchestra chief conductorship in 2012 and now has the title of conductor laureate with the BBC SO. He became the chief conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra last year. In April 2012, Bělohlávek was awarded an honorary CBE (Order of the British Empire) "for services to music”. He is a welcome guest of many well-known orchestras.
