François-Xavier Roth has been announced as Chevalier de la Legion d’honneur, for his 23 years of services to music as conductor and teacher, as part of President Macron’s first list (of 101, compared to up to 500 in previous years). The announcement was made on Bastille Day (14 July, 2017) with the investiture to be confirmed at a future date.

François-Xavier Roth appears at the BBC Proms on 16 August with Les Siècles, the group he founded, in an all-French programme inspired by the East.

He was recently announced as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra.
