Jérémie Rhorer Winner of Bremen Music Festival Award for 2017
Every year since 1998, the Musikfest Bremen awards the Musikefest-Preis Bremen to eminent soloists, ensembles, orchestras, and conductors who have marked the international music scene through their outstanding artistic work and who have had a decisive influence on the festival’s profile.
Jérémie Rhorer is a founding member of Le Cercle de l’Harmonie, a period instrument orchestra created in 2005 by Rhorer and violinist Julien Chauvin. As a conductor, he has gained international recognition for his interpretations of Mozart, notably directing an entire Mozart cycle at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris.
Jérémie Rhorer and Le Cercle de l’Harmonie performed for the first time at Musikfest Bremen in 2008 with an interpretation of Gluck’s “Orphée et Eurydice”. Since this outstanding debut performance proving Rhorer to be among the most fascinating conductors of his generation, the festival has welcomed back the orchestra for several subsequent editions.
