More information

Born in Tourcoing, France, and a graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, Denève has worked as conducting assistant to Sir Georg Solti with the Orchestre de Paris, Georges Prêtre at the Opéra National de Paris, and Seiji Ozawa at the Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto in 1998. He made his USA conducting debut at Santa Fe Opera in 1999 with Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmelites, and has worked with many other of the world's major orchestras as well.

Denève assumed the post of music director of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) in September 2005, his first music directorship. In his first season, he led the RSNO at the 2006 Proms concerts in London, and its first ever performance in France. In April 2007, he extended his contract with the Orchestra through 2011. In March 2010, the RSNO announced the further extension of Denève's contract for one more year, and the conclusion of his tenure after the 2011-2012 season. Denève and the RSNO have made several commercial recordings for the Naxos and Chandos labels, including of Albert Roussel and Guillaume Connesson.


In October 2009, Denève first guest-conducted the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (RSO Stuttgart) as a substitute for Michel Plasson. Based on that appearance, in March 2010, the RSO Stuttgart announced the appointment of Denève as its 6th chief conductor, starting with the 2011-2012 season. His initial Stuttgart contract is for 3 years through the 2013-2014 season.

In July 2007, Denève married Åsa Masters in a ceremony in California. The couple have a daughter, Alma, born in 2008.
