François-Xavier Roth

François-Xavier Roth has developed a very special relationship with the LSO ever since he first conducted the Orchestra in 2000, when he won the Donatella Flick Conducting Competition and, as a result became the LSO’s Assistant Conductor. He has worked with the LSO at every Barbican season since then and has been closely involved in the Orchestra’s Panufnik Composers Scheme, a leading programme for young and emerging composers, which has placed him at the heart of the LSO’s development of new music since the Scheme launched in 2006.
