Paul Bateman (conductor)

Paul Bateman studied piano, organ, singing and cello at the Guildhall School of Music in London, and began his musical life as an accompanist, chamber musician and opera repetiteur. He conducts film music concerts all over the world and has recorded many film music albums for Silva Screen Records. His total discography now includes over 70 recordings, many of which feature daily on Classic FM.

Paul first appeared at Bryn Terfel’s Faenol Festival in 2000 and was invited to return in 2002. He has conducted the Norwegian Radio Orchestra for the Nobel Peace Prize concerts in Oslo, accompanying a dazzling array of international artists including Bryn Terfel, Barbara Hendricks, Sumi Jo, Jessye Norman, Santana and Sir Paul McCartney.

Paul’s association with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra goes back several years, having conducted their ‘Film Music Gala’ concerts at the Royal Albert Hall for nine consecutive years, many concerts around the UK and a tour of Korea. For Sarah Brightman he has conducted recordings of his own arrangements with the LSO and RPO and gives concerts with her all over the world.

He is also a regular guest conductor in Malta for tenor Joseph Calleja’s annual summer concerts, most recently with Bryn Terfel as guest soloist. In 2013 he conducted for José Carreras in Japan, having written many new arrangements for his latest album.

2013 also saw the beginning of a fruitful relationship with Deutsche Grammophon and Decca, working as arranger on albums for Piotr Beczala, Joseph Calleja and Daniel Hope, who also commissioned Paul to write a new suite for violin and orchestra based on the songs of Kurt Weill.
