High Notes: Jane Glover

This event was recorded on August 3, 2022 at Hotel Jerome during the 2022 High Notes Series, in partnership with Aspen Public Radio.

Acclaimed British conductor Jane Glover, named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2021 New Year’s Honors, is music director of Chicago’s Music of the Baroque. Future and recent-past engagements include returns to the Philadelphia Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra (at both Severance Hall and the Blossom Music Festival), Houston Symphony, Orchestra of St. Luke’s (at Carnegie Hall), and London Mozart Players.

In the 2021–22 season Ms. Glover will make her debut with the Chicago Symphony and Montreal’s Orchestre Mètropolitain, and will conduct The Magic Flute at both the Metropolitan Opera and Houston Grand Opera. Her discography includes a series of Mozart and Haydn symphonies with the London Mozart Players and recordings of Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Britten, and Walton with the London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, and BBC Singers.

Ms. Glover is the author of the critically-acclaimed books Mozart’s Women and Handel in London. She holds a personal professorship at the University of London, is a Fellow of the Royal College of Music, an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music, and the holder of several honorary degrees. In 2020 Ms. Glover was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Game Changer Award for her work in breaking new ground for other female conductors.
