David Zinman (b1936)

David Zinman started to study the violin at the age of six, and was a violin student at the Oberlin College Conservatory. After graduating he studied composition for three years at the University of Minnesota, about which he later commented, ‘It was a great way of actually understanding how composers compose, and that helps me in my interpretative work.’ During this period he also studied conducting at the Tanglewood Music Center, where he came to the attention of Pierre Monteux, who invited him to be his assistant with the London Symphony Orchestra during his tenure of that orchestra’s chief conductorship, from 1961 to 1964. Zinman conducted the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra to considerable critical acclaim at the Holland Festival in 1963, substituting for Paul Sacher. He was appointed chief conductor of this orchestra with effect from the following year, and remained with it until 1977. Also from 1974 he served as chief conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in the USA, retaining this post until 1985. With the Rochester orchestra he made numerous tours as well as recordings, all of which helped to establish his reputation in America.
