David Lloyd-Jones (Conductor)

Born: 1935 - England

The English conductor, David (Matthias) Lloyd-Jones, began his professional career in 1959 on the music staff of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and soon became much in demand as a freelance conductor for orchestral and choral concerts, BBC broadcasts and TV studio opera productions.

David Lloyd-Jones has appeared at the Royal Opera House, Welsh National Opera, Scottish Opera and the Wexford, Cheltenham, Edinburgh and Leeds Festivals. In 1972 he was appointed Assistant Music Director at the English National Opera and during his time in that position conducted an extensive repertory which included the first British performance of Prokofiev’s War and Peace. In 1978, on the invitation of the Arts Council of Great Britain, he founded a new full-time opera company, Opera North, with its new orchestra, the English Northern Philharmonia, of which he became Artistic Director. During his twelve seasons with the company he conducted fifty different new productions, including The Trojans, Die Meistersinger and the British stage première of Strauss’ Daphne, as well as numerous orchestral concerts, including festival appearances in France and Germany.

David Lloyd-Jones has made a number of very successful recordings of British and Russian music and has a busy career as a conductor in the concert-hall and the opera-house that has taken him to leading musical centres throughout Europe and the Americas.
