Steven Sloane

Musical direction

Artistic vision and tireless engagement in support of culture: these are the qualities that have gained the American-Israeli conductor Steven Sloane a worldwide reputation. A former pupil of Eugene Ormandy, Franco Ferrara and Gary Bertini, he played formative roles at festivals and opera houses such as the Spoleto Festival in Charleston and Opera North in Leeds from early in his career. He also served as conductor-in-chief of the American Composers Orchestra and the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and was artistic director of the European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010. The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra has appointed Steven Sloane as its new music director with effect from the 2020/21 season. Highlights of his work with the Bochumer Symphoniker at the Ruhrtriennale include Ligeti’s "Requiem" in 2019 and Henze’s "Das Floss der Medusa" in 2018, both in collaboration with Kornél Mundruczó. His 2006 Ruhrtriennale production of Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s "Die Soldaten" was particularly spectacular and was also presented at the Lincoln Center Festival in New York. Sloane’s most recent opera successes include Reimann’s "Medea" at the Komische Oper Berlin, "Adriana Lecouvreur" at Frankfurt Opera, "Der Fliegende Holländer" and "Tosca" in Malmö and "Salome" at the Spoleto Festival in the USA.
