Christopher Hogwood conducts repertoire ranging from the baroque to contemporary, always with the prevailing philosophy of revealing the original sound-world of the composer. Since founding The Academy of Ancient Music in 1973, he has gained international recognition for his performances of baroque and early classical repertoire with period instruments. For more than forty years he has also been performing music of the twentieth century, with a particular affinity for the neo-baroque and neoclassical schools including many works by Stravinsky, Martinu and Entartete composers. In addition to his position as Director of The AAM, he continues as Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi and the Kammerorchester Basel; he is Conductor Laureate of Boston’s Handel & Haydn Society. In opera he has worked with Opera Australia, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Royal Opera Stockholm, Royal Opera Covent Garden, Chorégies d’Orange and Houston Grand Opera….visit www.hogwood.org for further information.
