Philippe Jordan Biography (Wikipedia)

Philippe Jordan (born 18 October 1974, Zürich) is a Swiss conductor. He is currently music director of the Opéra national de Paris and chief conductor of the Vienna Symphony.

The son of conductor Armin Jordan, he began to study piano at age 6. At age 8, he joined the Zürcher Sängerknaben. He has acknowledged that he wished to become a conductor, like his father, at age 9. His violin studies began at age 11. At 16, he entered the Zürich Conservatory where he obtained his diploma in piano instruction, with honors. He studied theory and composition with the Swiss composer Hans Ulrich Lehmann and continued his piano studies with Karl Engel. At the same time, he worked as an assistant to Jeffrey Tate on Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen at the Châtelet in Paris.

In the 1994/95 season, Jordan was appointed First Kapellmeister and assistant to Music director James Allen Gähres at the Theater Ulm. The following year, he made his debut at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. He has since conducted at the Grand Théâtre in Geneva, the Vienna Staatsoper, the Châtelet in Paris, the Semperoper in Dresden and the Aix-en-Provence International Festival.
