Emmanuel Krivin studied as a violinist at the Paris Conservatoire and the Musical Chapel of the Belgian Queen Elisabeth, among his teachers were such famous musicians as Henrik Schering and Yehudi Menuhin. During his studies, the musician won many prestigious awards.

Since 1965, after a fateful meeting with Karl Böhm, Emmanuel Krivin devotes more and more time to conducting. From 1976 to 1983 he was permanent guest conductor of the Orchester Philharmonic de Radio France and from 1987 to 2000 he was music director of the Orchester National de Lyon. For 11 years he was also musical director of the French Youth Orchestra. Since 2001, the maestro has been successfully collaborating with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, and since the 2006/07 season he has been the music director of the orchestra. Since the 2013/14 season, he has also been Principal Guest Conductor of the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra.

Emmanuel Krivin has conducted many renowned orchestras in Europe, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (Amsterdam), the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Tonhalle Orchestra (Zurich), the Italian Radio and Television Orchestra ( Turin), the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and others. In North America he has conducted the Cleveland, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Toronto Symphony Orchestras, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, in Asia and Australia he has collaborated with the Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras, the Japan National Broadcasting Company (NHK) Symphony Orchestra, the Yomiuri Symphony Orchestra (Tokyo) .

Among the maestro’s recent performances are tours of the UK, Spain and Italy with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, concerts with the Washington National Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Under his direction there have been successful productions at the Opéra-Comique in Paris (Beatrice and Benedict) and at the Opéra de Lyon (Die Fledermaus).

In 2004, Emmanuel Krivin and other musicians from different countries of Europe organized the ensemble “La Chambre Philharmonique”, which dedicates itself to the study and interpretation of classical and romantic repertoire, as well as modern music up to the present day, using instruments that are adapted to certain compositions and their historical period. From its very first performance at the Crazy Days Festival in Nantes in January 2004, La Chambre Philharmonique has demonstrated its unique approach to music, which has won recognition from critics and the public.

In many respects, the band’s recordings on the Naîve label contributed to the success: Mozart’s Mass in C minor, Mendelssohn’s Italian and Reformation symphonies, as well as the disc, which included Dvorak’s Ninth Symphony and Schumann’s Concertpiece for four horns. The most recent release, a complete cycle of all of Beethoven’s symphonies, was awarded a Gramophone Editors’ Choice Award, and a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was reviewed by Fanfare Magazine as “a gripping, moving performance, the exact opposite of the bloodless tradition of history-informed performance.”

Emmanuel Krivin has also recorded extensively with the Philharmonic Orchestra (London), the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Lyon and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra (works by Strauss, Schoenberg, Debussy, Ravel, Berlioz, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, etc. ‘Andy, Ropartz, Dusapin).
