The Paris Chamber Orchestra has this week announced the appointment of German pianist and conductor Lars Vogt as its new Music Director – effective from July 2020.

The 49-year-old will succeed Scottish oboist and conductor Douglas Boyd – who had served the ensemble’s leadership role since 2015.

“Since my first rehearsal with the orchestra, I felt a great artistic and emotional association with the musicians …” Lars has this week said.

“The ensemble is highly creative and very open to risk-taking … I am so excited about the path we are going to take together,” he has said.

Lars has previous served as Music Director of the Royal Northern Sinfonia – and has led programs with the Cologne, Zurich and Maher Chamber Orchestras.
