In 1991 he co-founded the Paris-based Ensemble Court-Circuit of which he was Music Director for sixteen years until January 2008, before he was appointed Chief Conductor with Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen in September 2009. In addition to this position he was also appointed, in March 2013, as Principal Guest Conductor with the Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain in Lyons. Pierre-André Valade is especially well-known and admired for his performances of repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries, and receives regular invitations from major festivals and orchestras in Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Of his many recordings, Grisey’s Les Espaces acoustiques has been singled out for particular praise and has won both the Diapason d’or de l’année 1999 and the Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros. Valade is a regular guest conductor with the Tonhalle Orchester Zürich. Other orchestras he has worked with include the BBC symphony orchestras, the Philharmonia in London, the Luxemburg Philharmonic, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, the Oslo Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in Paris, Orchestre de Paris, Saarbrucken Radio Symphony, RTÉ National Symphony of Ireland in Dublin, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Accademia Nationale di Santa Cecilia, Teatro Carlo Felice, Ensemble Intercontemporain, London Sinfonietta, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Musikfabrik, and Ensemble Laboratorium. In January 2001 Pierre-André Valade was honoured as a Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture.
