Born in Amsterdam, he first started playing the violin before learning conducting. He made his debut in 1954 at the head of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1956, he conducted the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra for the first time before becoming its official conductor for a relationship that would last more than twenty years.

At the head of the greatest orchestras in the world

Bernard Haitink became the principal conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 1967, a position he held for more than ten years. This is not his only connection with British orchestras; he was also, from 1987 to 2002, the musical director of the Royal Opera House, in Covent Garden. He has conducted the greatest orchestras, from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, via the London Symphony Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
