Jamie Phillips


  • Jamie Phillips first came to international attention through his success in the Nestle Salzburg Conducting Award in 2012. He has since developed a strong guest conducting profile, demonstrating a natural authority and confidence on the rostrum, which he combines with a clear, expressive technique and innate musicality. He has been described as having “an uncommon ability to pick up a familiar piece by the scruff its neck and shake invigorating new life into it.” – Bachtrack.

We know Phillips to be one of the ablest up-and-coming conductors, but his account of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony was electrifying and won him a prolonged ovation, not least from the orchestra. He showed tremendous energy and very watchable athleticism, but also an eye for detail and certain discipline. He really had the Hallé playing superbly… With Phillips we have lift-off.

The Arts Desk

A convincing performance, which was characterised above all by natural musicality and fresh, free and yet precise direction.
