Charles Dutoit - Classical conductor

Charles Dutoit has been Music Director of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal since 1977. Their musical partnership is recognised today as one of the most successful in the world. In September 1990, Charles Dutoit also became Music Director of the Orchestre National de France, replacing Lorin Maazel.

In September 1996 he was also appointed Principal Conductor of the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo. In addition to his summer activities with the OSM, Charles Dutoit is Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of two of North America's most prestigious summer festivals: the Philadelphia Orchestra¹s concert series at the Mann Music Centre in Philadelphia and at the Saratoga Performing Arts Centre in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Chick Corea - Jazz composer-pianist

Chick Corea Considering the staggering volume of his recorded output over the past 40 years, it is no overstatement to call Chick Corea one of the most prolific composers of the second half of the 20th century. From avant-garde to bebop, from children’s songs to straight ahead, from hard-hitting fusion to heady forays into classical, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his illustrious career while maintaining a standard of excellence that is simply uncanny.

A restlessly creative spirit, he continues to explore and generate new material for a number of different vehicles, including his dynamic Elektric Band and his flamenco flavoured Touchstone band. Other recent projects include The Ultimate Adventure, the second in a series of evocative recordings based on the writings of his favorite author and longtime inspiration, L. Ron Hubbard.
