About Jaap van Zweden

Acclaimed for superb performances and orchestra-building in Dallas and around the world, Amsterdam-born Jaap van Zweden was appointed at age 19 as the youngest-ever concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. Twenty years later, in 1995, he began his conducting career. Van Zweden remains Honorary Chief Conductor and Conductor Emeritus of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2012, Van Zweden received the Musical America’s Conductor of the Year Award in recognition of his critically acclaimed work with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, as well as for his appearances as guest conductor with other US orchestras. Van Zweden’s guest appearances at the New York Philharmonic have been praised by New York Times critics as “dynamic, all-out performances.”
