Now in his sixth year as Music Director of the Hamilton (Ontario) Philharmonic, James Sommerville has been enjoying a growing conducting career with recent critically acclaimed appearances with Symphony Nova Scotia, the Edmonton Symphony, l’Orchestre Symphonique du Québec and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

His glittering 25-year career as a horn soloist has seen triumphs with major orchestras throughout North America and Europe. His Juno Award-winning disc of the Mozart Horn Concertos with the CBC Vancouver Orchestra has been widely praised; other award-winning solo recordings include the Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings, and Britten’s Canticle.

Sommerville has recorded chamber music for the Deutsche Grammophon, Telarc, CBC, Summit, and Marquis labels. He has premiered chamber and solo music by many composers, including Christos Hatzis and Gyorgy Ligeti. In 2007, he premiered Elliott Carter’s Horn Concerto, which was commissioned for him by the Boston Symphony.

Sommerville also tours as a member of Osvaldo Golijov’s Andalucian Dogs.
