Mathieu Dufour's Biography

At the age of 25, Mathieu Dufour was appointed Principal Flute of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra by Daniel Baremboim, making him one of the youngest players ever to hold such a position. Since then, he has performed numerous times as soloist with the Chicago Symphony, in the concertos of Devienne, Mozart, Ibert, Bach, Jolivet, and Nielsen. Under the direction of Daniel Baremboim, his performances of the Mozart Concerto in G at Carnegie Hall in New York and the Bach Second Suite at the Philharmonie in Berlin earned him rave reviews. He has also performed as soloist at the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland. One critic wrote of a performance, “The ornate solo lines unfurled like yard upon yard of fine embroidered silk.”
