Jeffrey Tate was born with the condition of spina bifida, which makes his extraordinarily successful career even more astounding. As he himself has commented in interview, ‘If people had told me that I would have the stamina to conduct 'Ring' cycles, I would have been amazed … I still am.’ As a conductor, he is very much the musician’s musician. Gifted with a natural sense of expressive gesture and an inexhaustible love of music, his performances are characterised by an ideal balance between respect for the composer’s wishes and a deeply felt personal response. Tate holds those of Commander of the British Empire and the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France.
