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. A new version of this musical reconstruction of the coronation of Marino Grimani was released in 2012 on Winged Lion. (Winged Lion is an independent label, which McCreesh established in 2011 as a subsidiary of Signum Records).
Paul McCreesh has built a large discography for Deutsche Grammophon. McCreesh has conducted Handel’s Jephtha for Welsh National Opera and Gluck's Orphée & Eurydice, as well as Mozart’s The Magic Flute for Royal Danish Opera and, for Komische Oper Berlin, a new David Alden staging of Handel’s Alcina. He has also conducted Handel’s Rodelinda at the Beaune Festival and at the Brinkburn Festival which he founded and directs. Read more on Last.fm.
