Biography

Marc Minkowski was perhaps one of the most promising conductors to emerge within the 1990s, having carved away a distinct segment for himself (and his hand-picked ensemble, Les Musiciens du Louvre) within the lesser-known functions of the France and Italian Baroque. Within the competitive areas of early music and traditional performance, he provides garnered considerable important acclaim and were able to provide functions of comparative obscurity to the eye of wider viewers. Minkowski started his career being a bassoonist, learning to be a baroque expert during his tenure with such ensembles as Les Arts Florissants, the Clemencic Consort of Vienna, and La Chapelle Royale. His curiosity about performing flourished during research with the extremely reputed French conductor Charles Bruck on the Pierre Monteux College in Hancock, Me personally. After taking initial prize on the initial International Early Music Competition in Bruges (1984), Minkowski founded his very own early device ensemble, Les Musiciens du Louvre, with which he provides made the majority of his recordings. His biggest successes attended in the world of dramatic music, where his revivals of functions by Gluck, Lully, Purcell, and Handel possess drawn focus on his text-oriented dramatic feeling. This same strategy has borne equivalent fruit within the oratorios and choral functions of Handel, which he provides produced a staple of his repertory. Minkowski and Les Musiciens du Louvre agreed upon an exclusive agreement with Deutsche Grammophon’s Archiv Produktion label in 1994, and in 1997 they became a member of forces using the Orchestre de Chambre de Grenoble. Minkowski in addition has executed the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Mozarteum Salzburg, as well as the Staatskapelle Dresden, among various other world-class orchestras.
