Biography, long version

 

The Austrian-born Andreas Stoehr is dynamic, multi-faceted member of the current generation of European conductors, who combine the well-rounded experience of a German 'Kapellmeister' with application of recent discoveries in historical performance. He studied piano and conducting at the Conservatoire and music history at the University in Vienna, and made his conducting debut with the Vienna Chamber Opera while still a student.
After graduating, he was engaged at the Graz Opera in Austria, initially as pianist, then as head coach and conductor, and appeared as a guest conductor at the State Oper Prague. Four years as Music Director of the Opéra Comique in Paris were followed by an appointment as principal conductor at St.Gallen, Switzerland. From 2001 to 2009, Stoehr conducted a broad repertoire at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Dusseldorf, Germany, where he drew international attention with his Monteverdi trilogy (L'orfeo, Ulisse, Poppea), on historical instruments. Career highlights include a concert project with the Liège Philharmonic, conducting the complete orchestral works of Robert Schumann.
A passionate interest of Andreas Stoehr is the discovery and performance of opera scores which have not been heard since their original performances, or which have been considered "lost". Through his efforts, Schubert's last opera "Der Graf von Gleichen" was heard for the first time at the Styriarte Festival in Austria in 1997 in the reconstructed version of Richard Dünser. The Prague version of Christoph Willibald Gluck's Opera "Ezio" was performed and appeared as a world premiere recording in 2007. 2015 saw the release of a recording in the Vienna Konzerthaus, documenting the first performance since the 1820s of Giacomo Meyerbeer's Italian operatic masterpiece "Emma di Resburgo".
Two recordings with db-productions Sweden were nominated for the Swedish Classical Grammy Award: works of the young Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi with the Västeras Sinfonietta in 2015, and the world- premiere studio recording of rediscovered works by Amanda Meier-Röntgen (1853 - 1893) in 2016.
As guest conductor, Maestro Stoehr has appeared with the Vienna Symphony, NTO Tonkünstler, Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Munich Symphony, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, L'Orchestre National de Lille, Residence Orchestra Den Haag, Orkest van het Oosten, het Brabants Orkest, the Sofia Philharmonic, the orchestras of Hannover, Braunschweig, Duisburg, Halle and Graz, the L'Orchestre de Chambre de Genève and the Kammerakademie Potsdam.
Appearances at Festivals include the Styriarte Festival, Klangbogen Vienna, Festival de Musique Montreux-Vevey and guest engagements for opera productions in Lucerne, Munich, Nationale Reisopera Netherlands, Teatro Massimo di Palermo, The Royal Opera Copenhagen and the Royal Opera Stockholm, the Opera Leipzig and the Grand Théâtre in Geneva.
Between 2012 and 2019 Andreas Stoehr was Intendant and conductor of a summer open air Operetta Festival, “Schlossfestspiele Langenlois”, where he successfully established a contemporary operetta style. In the same year he returned as a professor to his Alma Mater in Vienna, leading the conducting class and the orchestra of the Music ans Arts University of the City of Vienna (MuK).
He is highly regarded as a guest conductor in academic circles and has led projects with the university orchestras of Porto (Portugal), and the universities of Wisconsin and Yale in the United States.
