Biografie

Seiji Ozawa is one of the world's most celebrated orchestra conductors with a long career as musical director in major cities around the world including San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Boston, where for 29 years he was in charge of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Born in China to Japanese parents who returned to their home country in 1944, he studied piano until a rugby injury brought about a change to conducting. After capturing first prize in the International Competition of Orchestra Conductors in France, he was invited to study at what is now the Tanglewood Music Center in Massachusetts, where he won the top honour as outstanding conductor, the Koussevitzky Prize, and a scholarship to study in Berlin with Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan.

American composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein named him as assistant conductor of the New York Philharmonic for two seasons in the early 1960s. Also in that decade, Ozawa was musical director of the Toronto Symphony and principal conductor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and in the decade to follow he conducted the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. In 1973, he began his long association with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which ended in 2002. A stint with the Vienna State Opera followed until he stepped down in 2010 citing illness. The conductor has devoted much of his life to teaching and in 2016, with writer Haruki Murakami, he produced a book titled 'Absolutely On Music: Conversations'.
