Douglas Boyd (conductor)
Music Director of Manchester Camerata
Principal Guest Conductor of City of London Sinfonia
Principal Guest Conductor of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra etc.
Joined in the KCM Represented Artist List (Japan & East Asia)
Douglas Boyd joined in the KCM Represented Artist List after making his very successful debut at the subscription concert of the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra in January 2010.
He was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1959. He was a founding member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe organized by Claudio Abbado in 1981.
Since his early 20s he had been a great oboist of the chamber orchestra and attracted considerable attention worldwide.
It is widely known that he released many discs as a soloist from several labels including Deutsche Grammophon.
After resigning as Principal Oboist in 2002, he turned to a conductor. While he has several positions at the orchestras in the UK and US, he is also busy in guest-conducting the leading orchestras in Europe and America.
At the request of the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra, KCM invited Douglas Boyd as a guest conductor of the subscription concert of the orchestra. This led to the continuous cooperation between him and KCM in the future.
His performance is very attractive because of his distinguished skill as a conductor, which seems to be significantly influenced by Claudio Abbado, and his excellent musicianship supported by his abundant experience gained from working with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Colin Davis.
