About the TSO

TAIPEI SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

The Taipei Symphony OrchestraWhen the Taipei Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1969, it was only a small thirty-member organization. Today, it has grown to become a professional symphony with more than a 100 members. Directors over the years have included Chang-Kuo Teng, Tun-Chu Chen, Felix Chiu-Sen Chen, Chia-Chu Hsu and Wei-Ming Hwang. In 2012, Hui-Fen Lin, the Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Cultural Affairs, became the current acting director. In addition to featuring the country’s top musicians, the TSO has collaborated with several hundred renowned international conductors and artists such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma, cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, and conductor Yuri Temirkanov. The TSO’s extensive concert repertoire includes outstanding works by both extraordinary local and foreign composers alike. The TSO has been under the direction of famous world-class conductors such as Hungary’s András Ligeti, who served as Musical Director, and German conductor Martin Fischer-Dieskau, who served as the Music Director Designate, both of whom infused new energy into the orchestra and expanded its repertoire. The TSO has gained widespread recognition throughout the world among music critics and music aficionados. In May 2013, the world-renowned conductor Gilbert Varga was named Principal Conductor of the TSO, taking the orchestra to new heights.
