In 2000 Robert Langevin joined the New York Philharmonic as Principal Flute, in The Lila Acheson Wallace Chair. His 2012 performance of Nielsen’s Flute Concerto was recorded for inclusion in The Nielsen Project, the orchestra’s multi-season traversal of all of the Danish composer’s symphonies and concertos, released by Dacapo Records. He is a member of the Philharmonic Quintet of New York with which he has performed concerts on many continents. Prior to the philharmonic, he was Principal Flute Chair of the Pittsburgh Symphony and associate principal of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. As a member of Musica Camerata Montreal and l’Ensemble de la Société de Musique Contemporaine du Québec, he premiered many works, including the Canadian premiere of Pierre Boulez’s Le Marteau sans maître. In January 2017, he made his Carnegie Hall solo debut in Pierre Boulez' Mémoriale under the direction of Daniel Barenboim in a concert commemorating the first anniversary of the composer's death. Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Mr. Langevin studied with Jean-Paul Major at the Montreal Conservatory of Music. Not long after, he won the prestigious Prix d’Europe, which enabled him to work with Aurèle Nicolet at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg, Germany. He then went on to study with Maxence Larrieu in Geneva. He is currently on the faculties of The Juilliard School, The Manhattan School of Music, and the Orford International Summer Festival.
