Starting from the season 2019/2020, maestro Lawrence Foster is our new Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the NOSPR, while Domingo Hindoyan is our Principal Guest Conductor.

Lawrence Foster is an artist of worldwide renown. Since 2013, he has been Music Director of l’Opéra de Marseille; earlier, he was music director of, among others, Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony, and the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne. He is Conductor Laureate of the Gulbenkian Orchestra, with which he toured around the world (including Germany, Spain, and Belgium) and performed at major music festivals with world-famous soloists.

As a guest conductor, he has been invited to work with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini, Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra, and Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra. He has appeared at the Lucerne and Grafenegg Festivals and collaborates with such outstanding artists as Evgeny Kissin, Arcadi Volodos, and Arabella Steinbacher.

Lawrence Foster is also a distinguished opera conductor. He has appeared in many productions at major opera venues throughout the world (including Frankfurt, Marseille, Hamburg, San Francisco, and Monte-Carlo), receiving wide critical acclaim and enthusiastic reviews. At the Enescu Festival in Bucharest (which he led as Artistic Director in the years 1998–2001), he gave a charismatic and memorable interpretation of the concert version of Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler. He scored a similar success with Traviata at the Savonlinna Opera Festival.

His rich discography includes recordings for Pentatone, including highly acclaimed albums with Arabella Steinbacher, collections of works by Bartók (Two Portraits), Ligeti (Romanian Concerto), and Kodály (Dances of Galanta and Háry Janos Suite), and discs with the Four Symphonies by Robert Schumann (with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra) and Strauss’ Zigeunerbaron (with NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover). In 2017, his interpretation of Verdi’s Otello was released, recorded with the Gulbenkian Orchestra.

Born in 1941 in Los Angeles to Romanian parents, Lawrence Foster has been a major champion of the music of Georg Enescu. In January 2003, he was decorated by the Romanian President for services to Romanian music.

Domingo Hindoyan is one of today's most exciting young conductors. He enjoys a vibrant, dynamic career, working with such internationally acclaimed ensembles as Philharmonia Orchestra, Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sinfonieorchester Basel, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, Liège Royal Philharmonic, and Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra.

He is also active in the opera world. He cooperates with Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, Staatsoper Stuttgart, Semperoper Dresden, Royal Swedish Opera, and Opéra de Monte-Carlo.
