Biography

Paul McCreesh (born May 24, 1960) is an English conductor.

Paul McCreesh is founder and artistic director of the Gabrieli Consort & Players, with whom he has established himself at the highest level in the period instrument field; he is recognised for his authoritative and innovative performances on the concert platform and the opera house. He is artistic director of the Wratislavia Cantans Festival in Wrocław, Poland and of the Brinkburn Festival in England. With the Gabrieli Consort and Players, Paul McCreesh has performed in major concert halls and festivals across the world. In 2005 Loughborough University conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa, on Paul McCreesh.

Paul McCreesh specialises in the music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. He also works with modern instrument orchestras including the DSO Berlin, RSO Berlin, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, Detroit Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphony, Sinfónica de Euskadi, Stockholm Philharmonic and Beethovenhalle Bonn, the Netherlands Philharmonic and the Orchestra Sinfonica dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia di Roma.

McCreesh began his career as a cellist and took his MusB from the University of Manchester in 1981. His directing début was at St John’s, Smith Square in London, and a sensational Proms début led to an early signing with Deutsche Grammophon’s Archiv label.

The Gramophone Award winning album “Venetian Coronation” (released on Virgin Classics in 1990) represented a break-through for the Gabrieli Consort and Players.
