David Reiland


David Reiland

Appointed as the 7th artistic director of the Korean National Symphony Orchestra from 2022, David Reiland reveals his strong ambitions for KNSO, which strives to expand internationally beyond S. Korea. Reiland, born in Belgium, having studied music in Brussels, Paris, and Salzburg and worked as a globally based conductor overseas. In other words, he is a typical “cosmopolitan” musician who is in demand by the current classical music realm. Reiland, who is familiar with various cultural arts and presents new repertoires with a broader perspective, can be said to be the best conductor for KNSO, which strives to actively respond to the rapidly changing art environment of the 2020s.
David Reiland is one of the most distinguished conductors on the European stage and has been working with the world’s most preeminent orchestras. He was anointed knighthood (chevalier) in the National Order of the Legion of Honour in 2023 from the French government.
