Jamie Phillips


  • Praised for having the “ability to pick up a familiar piece by the scruff of its neck and shake invigorating new life into it" (Bachtrack), Jamie Phillips demonstrates a natural authority on the rostrum, which he combines with a clear, assured and expressive technique and an innate musicality.

Phillips will also return to the Hallé, where he has been described as handling “his vast forces with tight control and penetrating insight” (Nottingham Post) and has previously held the title of Assistant Conductor and the specially created title of Associate Conductor. Phillips will also make his debut with the Munich Chamber Orchestra, North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philhamonic, Orchestre National d’Ile de France and Philharmonia Orchestra as well as at Vienna’s Musikverein and the Philharmonie de Paris.

    In recent seasons, Phillips has conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Czech Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Nash Ensemble, Camerata Salzburg, Copenhagen Philharmonic, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre d’Auvergne, Essen Philharmonic, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.

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.

Salzburger Nachrichten

Performances are spot-on, not least from the orchestra’s assistant conductor, Jamie Phillips, making an auspicious debut on disc.
