David Zinman (uncredited)

David Zinman

David Zinman is in his fourteenth season as Music Director of the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich, having taken up that post in 1995 after many years as a regular guest conductor there. In 1998 he completed a highly successful 13-year tenure as Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. That same year, he became Music Director of the Aspen Music Festival and School, where he also is Program Director of the recently formed American Academy of Conducting at Aspen. Mr. Zinman's tenures, first in Baltimore and now in Zurich, have been distinguished by his extraordinarily broad repertory, his strong commitment to contemporary music, and his introduction of historically informed performance practice.
