Since September 2008 Daniele Gatti has been music director of the Orchestre National de France, and from 2009 to 2012 was also principal conductor at Zurich’s Opera House. In addition, he is a conductor laureate of London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. As a guest conductor he works closely with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam as well as the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Gatti is also in great demand in the orchestra pit, appearing regularly at the state operas of Vienna and Munich, La Scala in Milan, London’s Royal Opera House Covent Garden as well as the festivals of Salzburg and Bayreuth. After a guest concert with the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester in der Semperoper at the beginning of the 2012/2013 season, Gatti will now return to the Staatskapelle Dresden with a Russian programme.
