Riccardo Chailly conducts the Concertgebouw Orchestra

Riccardo Chailly was the chief conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra from 1988 to 2004. While he was able to continue the tradition of the great romantic works in a new way, at the same time he expanded the orchestra’s repertoire of contemporary music and opera. He returned for several concerts with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in April 2013. In March 2018, he conducted the orchestra in works by Stravinsky and Shostakovich.

From 2005 to 2016, Chailly took charge of the Gewandhaus Orchester and the opera in Leipzig. In 2015, he became principal conductor of La Scala in Milan, of which he is the artistic director since January 2017. He fulfils the same role at the Lucerne Festival Orchestra since 2016.
