Georges Prêtre (French pronunciation: ; 14 August 1924 – 4 January 2017) was a French orchestral and opera conductor.
Prêtre – who, now in his nineties, still has an active career – is very much the international maestro, conducting most of the world’s major orchestras and appearing in the world’s top opera houses, while Jordan (who died in 2006) focused his career largely on Switzerland and France, though he gained a reputation in the USA in the last decade or so o. Particularly notable in Prêtre’s Warner Classics catalogue are the recordings he made with Maria Callas in the 1960s (Carmen, Tosca and the two Callas à Paris recitals) but the 17-CD ICON collection displays the extraordinary breadth of his achievement.
Georges Prêtre leads a 2007 rehearsal on the stage of the Opéra Bastille in Paris. Beginning in the 1980s, he worked mainly in Vienna. Francois Guillot/AFP/Getty Images). He combined concentration and individuality in a unique way and his daring and adventurous personality always spurred us on to perform at our very best - and sometimes beyond of what we believed to be capable of.
