Alexandre Bloch


Admired for his enthusiasm and energy, Alexandre Bloch is fast-gaining a reputation as a truly talented young artist. The French conductor came to international attention as winner of Donatella Flick’s LSO Conducting Competition in October 2012, after which he was appointed Assistant Conductor at the London Symphony Orchestra. He was named '2012 Talent' by ADAMI (French Society for Performers' Rights).
Recent successful debuts include Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Orchestre Chambre Paris and NWD Philharmonie. In 2012 he stepped in to replace an indiposed Mariss Jansons at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra for three very successful concerts including Strauss’ Tod und Verklärung and a commission by Jorg Widmann. Future plans include concerts Manchester Camerata and debuts with Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Scottish Chamber and Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

"How refreshing to see Bloch having such fun; every conductorial twist, lurch and twink reflected in orchestral playing which oozed style and character.", Graham Rickson, 21 February 14

Conducting Final


Bloch had the essence of this music at his fingertips, as he most assuredly also had of the ‘Play of the Waves’ middle movement from Debussy’s La mer, in which, as a Frenchman, he was on home ground, so to speak, but his direction and – indeed – interpretation of his compatriot’s masterpiece was head and shoulders above those of his competitors.
