Andrew Litton (conductor)

American born Andrew Litton stepped down in May 2006 as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony after twelve successful seasons in which he led the orchestra on three European tours, four visits to Carnegie Hall, and produced six nationally broadcast television programs and 28 recordings in repertoire ranging from Gershwin to Mahler. An extraordinarily acclaimed recording of the complete Rachmaninoff Concertos with pianist Stephen Hough for Hyperion won last year’s coveted Classical Brits/BBC Critics Award. Litton continues as Music Director Emeritus of the Dallas Symphony and will be returning annually for concerts at the Meyerson Symphony Center. He is also Conductor Laureate of Britain’s Bournemouth Symphony, and will be appearing as guest conductor with the major orchestras and opera companies of Europe and North America.

Litton is the first American Music Director of Norway’s Bergen Philharmonic, a 242 year old orchestra once led by Edvard Grieg. He takes the Bergen Philharmonic on extensive European touring this season, including the orchestra’s 2007 debut at the renowned London BBC Proms; it makes its first Carnegie Hall appearance in a US tour in 2007/2008.

Litton also directs the Minnesota Orchestra’s Sommerfest, turning around its flagging fortunes over the last four seasons; he has had an especially busy summer season, returning to conduct two concerts with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Center, conducting from the keyboard in a Gershwin Gala with the Chicago Symphony at Ravinia, and leading a farewell concert with the Dallas Symphony in its final residency at the Colorado Vail Valley Bravo! Music Festival before making his debut at the Grand Teton Music Festival in Wyoming.
