Cross of Merit

SYLVAIN CAMBRELING AWARDED WITH
FEDERAL CROSS OF MERIT

TRIBUTE IN HONOR OF „OUTSTANDING ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT“
AND CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS MUSIC EDUCATION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

Federal President Joachim Gauck awarded Sylvain Cambreling, Stuttgart Opera’s General Music Director, with the Federal Cross of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. The award acknowledges Cambreling’s artistic achievement over the years as well as the many projects in the field of music education for young people initiated and conducted by Cambreling himself. He was presented with the Cross of Merit on Friday, 30 November 2012 by Jürgen Walter, Stuttgart’s Secretary of State for the Arts.
 
“With this award, the Federal Republic of Germany is pleased to honor your outstanding artistic achievement which has enriched Baden-Württemberg’s musical life immeasurably. Already during your time as chief conductor of the SWR Symphony Orchestra Baden-Baden and Freiburg, you made an invaluable contribution to the Federal State’s national and international reputation as a land of music”, states Secretary of State Walter.
 
With a commitment that far exceeded normal standards, Cambreling had particularly made a name for himself within the field of music education for young people, Jürgen Walter continues. Walter: “In many exemplary projects Sylvain Cambreling encouraged a new form of artistic and pedagogical collaboration between music-playing youths and professional musicians. Young people with the most diverse abilities – amongst them several with disabilities – were included in those projects.” He also added that Baden-Württemberg could count itself lucky as Cambreling’s creative dedication would from now on be in Stuttgart of benefit to a wide audience.

Opera Intendant Jossi Wieler about the tribute: “I am very much pleased that our General Music Director Sylvain Cambreling has so honorably been distinguished by the Federal President and I most warmly congratulate him. Sylvain Cambreling is not only one of the most significant conductors of our time; like no other he is able to inspire and to move people with his music, to enthuse listeners for new and extraordinary compositions and to provide them with a more sensual and intellectual approach even to music regarded as “cumbersome” within the opera and concert repertory. We are very happy about his decision to work with us in Stuttgart over the next years. He is of inestimable value for our opera, the city of Stuttgart and the region.”

Biography

BIOGRAPHY

SYLVAIN CAMBRELING

In September 2012 Sylvain Cambreling took up the position of General Music Director of Stuttgart Opera. He is also Principal Conductor of the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo.

French-born conductor Sylvain Cambreling is a musician with big ideas. A thought-provoking, colourful and dramatic artist, he has a flair for grabbing the attention of audiences, yet his originality is rooted in thorough knowledge of musicology. During his time as Chief Conductor of the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg as well as Principal Guest Conductor of Klangforum Wien, he offered ample proof of his gifts for imaginative programme-planning and persuasive championship of contemporary music.

Cambreling was Music Director at La Monnaie for ten years before becoming Music Director at Frankfurt Opera in the 1990s. Productions notable for the introduction of new and often revolutionary ideas include Pelléas et Mélisande and Les Troyens for the Salzburg Festival and Wozzeck, Fidelio and a Ring cycle in Frankfurt.

Sylvain Cambreling has conducted extensively at Opéra National de Paris, where his work has included Saint François d'Assise, Pelléas et Mélisande, Katya Kabanova, La Clemenza di Tito, The Love for Three Oranges, Don Giovanni, Le nozze di Figaro, Simon Boccanegra, Les Troyens, Louise, La Traviata, Ariane et Barbe-Bleue and Wozzeck.

Cambreling balances his opera engagements with his appointments with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Klangforum Wien, and guest appearances in concert with the world’s leading orchestras. He has performed with orchestras including the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonics, the radio orchestras of Hamburg, Köln, Copenhagen, Stockholm and London, as well as the Philharmonia, BBC Symphony, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Münchner Philharmoniker, Vienna Symphony, Orchestre de Paris and Oslo Philharmonic orchestras. In North America he has conducted the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony and Orchestre symphonique deMontréal.

A great believer in imaginative programming, Cambreling is famous for the originality of his concert-planning. A speciality is the juxtaposition of contrasting but related works or composers, for example Haydn and Messiaen, or Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust with Schumann’s Scenes from Goethe's Faust. Among the boldest of his recent projects is the performance on consecutive evenings of Messiaen’s three largest works – Turangalîla, Éclairs sur l'au-delà and La transfiguration de notre seigneur Jésus-Christ.

In 2009 Sylvain Cambreling received the Echo Klassik Conductor of the Year Award and the Deutsche Schallplatten Jahrespreise 2009 for best orchestral CD and in 2010 the MIDEM Contemporary Music Award for his recording of Messiaen with the SWR Freiburg and Baden-Baden Symphony Orchestra.
