Mathieu Herzog

Solea represents Mathieu Herzog for general management.

“Performances of Mozart’s last three symphonies — Nos. 39, 40 and 41 — are ubiquitous. Performances of Mozart’s last three symphonies that have the bite and brio of French conductor Mathieu Herzog and Ensemble Appassionato’s are much harder to find, a fact that makes this brilliant recording all the more precious.” WQXR

Received to wide acclaim by critics worldwide, these recordings have been awarded the “Diapason D’or”, the “Choc du monde de la musique”, and Album of the Year by Gramophone, to name just a few.

With this extensive experience to his credit, and after years of close collaboration and tutelage by such acclaimed artists as Mitsuko Uchida, György Kurtag, and Menahem Pressler, Mathieu decided in 2014 to devote himself to conducting.

Working alongside Semyon Bychkov for the first time earned him an immediate invitation to become his assistant, while he also spent a year at the University of Vienna studying under the tutelage of the esteemed Prof. Mark Stringer.

Since the start of this new professional orientation, Mathieu has been active on many fronts: in 2014 he was awarded First Prize at the International London Classical Soloist Orchestra Competition in London, and a year later the 'édito musica' prize in Budapest. In 2015 he founded his own chamber orchestra, Ensemble Appassionato, which specializes adapting a range of repertoire, including large scale works, for chamber ensemble. Mathieu has been invited to guest conduct orchestras such as the New Japan Philarmonic, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of La Monnaie, Bilkent Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre NAtional de Lorraine, the Orchestre Symphonique et Lyrique de Nancy, the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.

Beyond his work as a performer, Mathieu is also an accomplished arranger, working with such important singers as Phillipe Jarrousky and Natalie Dessay, and, in other genres, Stacey Kent and Luz Casals. From 2008 to 2014 Mathieu was Artistic Director of the “Printemps musical de Saint Cosme” festival in Tours (France). In June and July 2019, he will be artistic director of the 2nd edition of the Blaricum Music Festival in the Netherlands.

He has given masterclasses in England (Lake District Festival) and Germany (Frankfurt, Freiburg, Stuttgart and Berlin Hochschule), and in 2009 was named Professor in Residence at the prestigious Colburn School in Los Angeles (United States).

Mathieu is also currently working on a libretto based on the life of Georges Bizet.
