Biography

David Stern's musical leadership is spread across three continents.

Whether conducting a romantic opera, a baroque oratorio or a classical symphony, teaching vocal master classes or defending cultural activities, David Stern keeps his musicians, students and audiences riveted by sharing his strong musical convictions and his belief that music is relevant and indeed essential in today's world. He is the founder and director of Opera Fuoco, the Paris-based international opera company and young artist program dedicated to lyric repertoire from the mid- 18th century to the present, chief conductor of the Palm Beach Opera in Florida, artistic adviser and chief conductor of the Shanghai Baroque Festival and director of the newly founded Heifetz Baroque Program in Staunton Virginia. Since 2016 he has been the co-chair of the jury of the Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition.

Stern’s repertoire ranges from the mainstream to the eclectic. As music director of the Israel, St. Gallen and Palm Beach Opera houses, he championed works such as Simone Mayr's Medea, Berg's Wozzeck, Britten’s Turn of the Screw and Weill's Mahagonny as well as Mozart, Strauss and Puccini. With Opera Fuoco he has led the modern day premiere of JC Bach’s Zanaida, and the French premiere of Korngold’s die Stumme Serenade. He has championed operas of Telemann such as Damon and Richardus and most recently has conducted a B minor mass in Leipzig to close the Bachfest 2019. In 2020 he will bring Mayr’s L’Amor Conjugale to the Beethovenfest in Bonn. In Shanghai he has performed Purcell and Handel, Bloch’s Sacred Service, Roussel’s third symphony, and will soon present the Chinese premiere of Florent Schmitt’s La Tragédie de Salomé.

Since launching the Aix-en-Provence Festival’s Académie Internationale d’Art Lyrique with Stephane Lissner in 1998, David Stern has been committed to developing young voices. He created Opera Fuoco in 2003 as a platform for young professional singers in France, combining both an young artists program, a period-instrument orchestra and a company which produces concertante and staged projects nationally and internationally. In 2016, he conducted Mozart's Magic Flute at the Juilliard School in New York, and will appear in 2020 as part of the Curtis Institute opera season. In 2019 he inaugurated a very successful baroque vocal workshop at the Heifetz International Institute in Staunton, Virginia, initiating both singers and young string players to baroque performance style and expression. He also participates in the Nordplus Education Network for a series of concerts with young singers from Baltic countries at the Drottningholm Theater in Stockholm.

Stern has enjoyed collaborations with international stage directors including David Alden, Stéphane Braunschweig, Robin Guarino, Sam Helfrich, Waut Koeken, Jakob Peters-Messer and Aron Stiehl, among many others. With Yoshi Oïda he created iconic settings of Britten’s Curlew River and Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde and with Francisco Negrin he led performances of Mozart’s Mitridate as artist in residence at the 2014 Drottningholm Opera Festival.

Stern has recorded with various ensembles throughout his career. With Opera Fuoco, his Paris- based opera company, he has recently recorded ”Berenice che fai?”, a compilation of late Baroque and early Classical works with three members of Opera Fuoco’s studio singers and very well received by the press. Previous recordings with Opera Fuoco include The Romantic Cantatas with Karine Deshayes, Johann Christian Bach’s opera Zanaida, and two Handel oratorios, Semele and Jephtha. He also recorded Simone Mayr's Medea with the St. Gallen Opera, John Field’s piano concertos with Concerto Köln and Andreas Staier, as well as works by Otto Nicolai and concertos of Albert Roussel with Jean-Guihen Queyras. His latest recording of arias by Florian Leopold Gassman with Soprano Ania Vegry will be released on the CPO label.

David Stern is a frequent guest conductor around the globe. He is regularly invited to the Edmonton Opera, the Drottningholm Opera Festival, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Shanghai and Guangzhou Symphonies, the China Philharmonic Orchestra, the New Russian Symphony the Swedish Chamber orchestra and has led recent performances with the Boston Lyric Opera, the Royal Danish Opera orchestra, the Vienna Symphony and NDR Hannover. In 2020 he will appear with the Opera Orchestra of Marseille and the Sydney Symphony in Australia.
