Pâris Alain

Chef d'orchestre/ Conductor

Conductor, producer of musical broadcasts (France Music and Radio Suisse Romande), teacher and musicographer, Alain Pâris is recognised as an untiring propagator of music beyond the barriers of disciplinary specialisation.

Sought after the world over for his knowledge of the French repertoire, he has conducted nearly seventy orchestras in some thirty countries on four continents and carried out regular actions in particular with the Saint-Petersburg Capella (1993-99), Bilkent Symphony Orchestra of Ankara (since 1998), Athens State Orchestra (2002-04), Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra (since 2001), Cairo Symphony Orchestra, and George Enescu Philharmonic of Bucharest (since 1999) to make French music better known.

A disciple of Pierre Dervaux, Paul Paray and Georg Solti, and First Prize at the Besançon International Competition in 1968, he was assistant-conductor to Michel Plasson at the Capitole de Toulouse, permanent conductor at the Opéra du Rhin, in Strasbourg (1983-87) and professor of conducting at the Strasbourg Conservatory (1986-89).

As guest conductor, he has appeared at the head of the major French orchestras as well as in Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Estonia, Finland, Portugal, Rumania, Austria, Hong Kong… Over the course of the past few seasons, he has conducted the Orchestre de Paris at Salle Pleyel and been invited to Buenos Aires (Teatro Colón), Cannes, Singapore, Guangzhou, Katowice, Budapest, Lugano, Bangkok, Macao, Shanghai, Istanbul and Mexico City.

His interest in French music also includes the music of our time, which he makes known outside of France. He has conducted numerous local premieres of works by Messiaen, Dutilleux, Escaich, El Khoury, Hersant, Qigang Chen, Connesson et al. In addition he has written several musicographic works of reference, in particular the Dictionnaire des interprètes (Editions Robert Laffont).
