Paul Meyer B


Paul Meyer is a figure of rare grace and relaxed elegance in classical music. It shows in the way he walks on stage. It shows in the unforced, stylish way he conducts. And it showed in the way the Scottish Chamber Orchestra played for him on Friday night throughout a programme that developed into an enthralling musical experience.

In May 2007 Paul Meyer was appointed Associate Conductor at the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. He will also be in charge of the orchestra's newly launched Woodwind Academy.

He wielded the baton for such famed orchestras as the Radio France Philharmonic, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, Munich Chamber Orchestra, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano G.Verdi, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Sinfonia Varsovia, Belgrade Philharmonic, Bilbao Symphony, Taipei Symphony Orchestra and, in June 2008, the Tokyo Phihlarmonic Orchestra. He toured France with the Prague Chamber Orchestra and Italy with the Archi Italiana, as well as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, with Emmanuel Pahud as soloist (12 concerts!) in Scotland and in Germany, which gave a highly acclaimed press in both the UK and in Germany:

"The superior programme concluded with a gripping account of Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony, which merits an essay in its own right, not least about a conductor-clarinettist who lets his wind players breathe and allies brainpower to joined-up conducting." (THE HERALD 4 FEB 2008)

Meyer studied at the Paris Conservatoire and the Basler Musikhochschule after his debut with the Orchestre Symphonique du Rhin at the age of 13. He received more acclaim after winning the French Young Musician's Competition in 1982 and the Young Concert Artists competition in the United States in 1984.

Meyer has released over 100 albums for many major record labels as a clarinetist. He was awarded several prizes including the Diapason d'Or, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Stern des Monats Fonoforum and Prix de la Revelation Musicale.
