Emmanuelle
Haïm

Conductor

After studying piano and harpsichord, Emmanuelle Haïm decided to focus on orchestral conducting. She founded Le Concert d’Astrée in 2000, an ensemble dedicated to the performance of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music on period instruments. The French harpsichordist–conductor and her orchestra have worked with such legendary soloists as Cecilia Bartoli, Philippe Jaroussky, Magdalena Kožená, Rolando Villazón and Anne Sofie von Otter. The ensemble has garnered great acclaim with staged performances of operas by Monteverdi, Rameau, Handel and Mozart, and its many CD and DVD recordings.

In addition to her performances with Le Concert d’Astrée, Haïm is in high demand as a guest conductor. She conducted a critically acclaimed performance of Handel’s Rodelinda at the Glyndebourne Touring Opera in 2001. She has led the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic on several occasions, and has made recent guest appearances with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. Haïm will be making her first guest appearance with the Concertgebouworkest in the 2019–20 season.

She was made a Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur, Officier des Arts et des Lettres, Officier de l’ordre national du Mérite and an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music for her services to Baroque music and her musical expertise.
