Douglas Boyd


Artistic Director of Garsington Opera
Music Director of L'Orchestre de Chambre de Paris

"He is one of the major British occupants of a rostrum today and will be increasingly recognised as such. He has the born conductor's ability to make music sound fresh, to detect its inner life and pulse and to expose them without over-exposing them and to make his players give more than they thought they could."
