Paris Play-Direct Academy-Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, Douglas Boyd, music director
The Paris Play-Direct Academy
Since its foundation in 1978, the Orchestre de chambre de Paris, with its 43 permanent musicians, has established itself as the leading chamber orchestra in France. Following successive collaborations with renowned artists such as Jean-Pierre Wallez, Armin Jordan, Jean-Jacques Kantorow, John Nelson, Joseph Swensen or Thomas Zehetmair.
Douglas Boyd is currently Music Director of the Orchestre de chambre de Paris, Chief Conductor of the Musikkollegium Winterthur and Artistic Director of Garsington Opera.
The opportunity to develop the art of being both musician and conductor with the orchestra is a unique artistic experience. Having direct contact with the musicians in the orchestra, working jointly on the style, articulation and balance, learning the gestures… so many elements combine to instill a concerto with the true spirit of chamber music.
The Orchestre de chambre de Paris has made the ‘Play-Direct’ technique one of the mainstays of its work with many great musicians like Thomas Zehetmair, Maxim Vengerov, Stephen Kovacevich, Heinrich Schiff as well as Joseph Swensen, Jeffrey Kahane and François Leleux.
