David Curtis

Artist Director – Orchestra of the Swan

“Curtis’s conducting, if close to Boult’s, is more intimate, and slightly more perceptive” American Record Guide (Ireland Piano concerto)

“… his imaginative programmes have a knack of making connections which are genuinely stimulating.” The Guardian

His thought-provoking programming, infectious enthusiasm and refreshing interpretations have established him on the international stage, working in Europe, the USA and Far East, conducting the Academy of St Martin’s-in- the-Field, Prague Chamber Orchestra, Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra. He appears as soloist and conductor in Finland with the Mikkeli City Orchestra, the Roveniemi Chamber and Yvaskyla Symphony Orchestras in the concert hall and on Finnish Radio.

David champions new work, premiering at least 50 works by leading composers from the UK, Europe, China and the USA including four world premieres in the Nordic Music Days for Icelandic Radio.
