Since 2020, Nikolaj Szeps-Znaiders holds the Music Directorship of the Orchestre National de Lyon. Besides this, he cherishes a close relationship with the London Symphony Orchestra, and he is also a regular guest conductor, with upcoming returns to the podiums of Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, and Montreal Symphony Orchestra. This season, the conductor anticipates his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Szeps-Znaider's career began as a violinist. His artistry was awarded by, among others, the Jaroslav Kocian Competition and the International Carl Nielsen Violin Competition, and in 1997, he won the prestigious first prize in the Queen Elisabeth Competition. The 2022/23 season foresees appearances with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
Edvard Grieg as a synonym of Norway and Norwegian folk music, and Richard Strauss as the ambassador for the Bavarian Alps: the two composers had not only their musical talent in common, but also an enormous love for their homeland.
