Item Details
Sir Alexander Gibson was renowned for his work in Scotland, although he spent six years with Sadlers Wells Opera in the fifties, becoming its youngest Music Director. In 1959 he was appointed Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. He was the first Scotsman to hold the post, and under his direction the orchestra’s prestige grew steadily, enhanced by foreign tours, major festival appearances, and many recordings. In 1984, he became Honorary President of the RSNO in recognition of his services to the orchestra and his immense contribution to the musical life of Scotland. Sir Alexander appeared regularly in the US since his debut there in 1969 with the Detroit Symphony, and in 1974 he conducted the first American performance of Monteverdi’s II Ritorno d’Ulisse in Washington DC. He was Principal Guest Conductor of the Houston Symphony from 1981 to 1983, and conducted the orchestras of Philadelphia, Cleveland, San Jose, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Saint Louis, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh. Two tours of the US and Canada with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra brought acclaim for both orchestra and conductor.
