Curriculum


Hannu Lintu took over as Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in August 2013.

Formerly Artistic Director of the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and Chief Conductor of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, he has also been Principal Guest Conductor of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin. He works regularly with the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra and was Artistic Director of its Summer Sounds festival in 2005.

In addition to conducting the leading Finnish orchestras, Maestro Lintu has made guest appearances with the Radio Orchestras in Berlin, Paris, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Amsterdam and Madrid, with a number of orchestras in North and South America (such as the Toronto, Houston, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and St. Louis Symphony Orchestras, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl), in Asia (Seoul, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong) and Australia (the Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras and others). During the 2012/2013 season he made his debut with such orchestras as the London Philharmonic, the Minnesota Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony, and this season he takes up re-invitations to conduct the Stockholm and Gothenburg Symphonies, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (DSO), the Toronto Symphony and other orchestras.

Hannu Lintu studied the piano and cello first at the Turku Conservatory in his native Finland and later the Sibelius Academy, where he also attended the conducting class taught by Jorma Panula, Atso Almila, Eri Klas and Ilja Musin. He has further been tutored by, among others, Myung Whun Chung at the Music Academy Siena. In 1994 he was the winner of the Nordic Conducting Competition.

Discs by Hannu Lintu have been released on the Ondine, Alba, Naxos, Ricordi, Claves, Hyperion and Danacord labels. Many of the discs featuring him as the conductor have won awards both at home and abroad, and his premiere recording of the opera The Mine by Einojuhani Rautavaara was nominated for a Grammy.
