Pierre-Alain Monot’s repertoire is ideally suited to document the diversity of 20th-century music and the music of the new decade. Supported by David Zinman, Janos Fürst and Jost Meier, he has deepened his activity with the NEC, which he has headed since 1995.
Besides contemporary music, his programmes clearly reveal a passion for French music and the post-romantics. Many composers value his commitment in the performances or premières of their music.
Pierre-Alain Monot has made guest appearances with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zurich, the Bienne Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre suisse des Jeunesses musicales, the Sinfonietta Lausanne, the Philharmonie de Rousse, Ensemble TaG, Sonemus Sarajevo, Ensemble Helix and opera nova Zürich. He also undertakes projects with the Musikkollegium Winterthur on a regular basis.
