The French conductor Pierre Bleuse is considered an outstanding talent on concert podiums in his home country and is on the cusp of a great international career. His communication with the orchestra is characterised by an inspiring enthusiasm and a natural charming authority, which is supported by a clear and expressive conducting technique. He enjoys continued artistic relationships with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and the Orchestre National Bordeaux-Aquitaine. This season, Pierre Bleuse will make more appearances in concert halls outside France.
He made his successful United States debut with the Utah Symphony Orchestra in July 2016, having caught the attention of Thierry Fischer, Music Director of the Utah Symphony Orchestra, with a performance at the Mozarteum Salzburg with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Animato Stiftung. Pierre Bleuse will tour with the youth orchestra, which he has been conducting since 2014, to Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava in November 2016.
Pierre Bleuse will return to the Opéra de Lyon in 2017 and 2019, after first assisting Kazushi Ono in two productions in 2013, and subsequently returning in 2015. The composer Michael Jarrell has also entrusted him with his opera Cassandre, a production of which will be presented with the actress Fanny Ardant and the Lemanic Ensemble at the Grand Théâtre de Provence in Aix-en-Provence in January 2017.
The conductor also oversees the Musika Orchestra Academy in collaboration with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, with whom he made his debut on the rostrum in 2012 and has since made regular appearances as a guest conductor. Originally founded as an international music festival, Musika views itself as a first-rate European academy and platform for professional exchange between musicians, sound engineers and producers of different countries. It profits from support by renowned artists such as Louis Schwizgebel, Bertrand Chamayou, Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Gautier Capuçon.
Pierre Bleuse studied conducting with Jorma Panula in Finland from 2010 and Laurent Gay at the Music Conservatory Geneva. As a violinist, he was the prizewinner of the Conservatoire National de Paris and has worked with ensembles such as the Quatuor Satie, Ensemble Court-circuit and tm+, as well as the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France.
