François-Xavier Roth

‘François-Xavier Roth is a modern-day musical Midas. With his touch, music leaps to life. In his adventures with the London Symphony Orchestra and his own brilliant ensemble Les Siècles, he stylishly unites modern and historical practice. He lights up the imagination of concertgoers and the many young performers and composers to whom he generously devotes his time.'
