Orchestre de Paris

The Orchestre de Paris, the successor to the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire founded in 1828, gave its inaugural concert in November 1967 under the direction of its founding father Charles Munch. After his death, the music directorship of the orchestra was entrusted successively to Herbert von Karajan, Sir Georg Solti, Daniel Barenboim (who created a permanent amateur chorus in 1976), Semyon Bychkov, Christoph von Dohnányi, and Christoph Eschenbach. Paavo Järvi was appointed music director from the 2010/11 season onwards.
