Augustin Dumay · Conductor & Violin
• Biography

International critics have compared Augustin Dumay to the major violinists of the 20th century, describing him as a “great classical stylist”, a reputation underscored by his outstanding recordings for Deutsche Grammophone.
Augustin Dumay won the premier prix of the Conservatoire Paris at the age of thirteen and soon became familiar to concert audiences in France, but his international career took off thanks to his encounter with Herbert von Karajan. He subsequently performed regularly with the world’s finest orchestras – the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, Koninklijk Concertgebouw Amsterdam, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, the Royal Philharmonic and many others.
Over the last ten years, parallel to his international career as a violinist, Augustin Dumay has also become very active as a conductor, both on stage and in recordings. Since 2011, he has been Music Director of the Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra (Osaka, Japan).
His latest recording, released in May 2016, is devoted to the Bartók’s Concerto No. 2 with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and Kent Nagano.
