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. 

His latest release on LSO Live explores a hidden gem by the young Debussy, as well as music by the composer's influences and contemporaries. Available now as a DVD & Blu-ray set.
