Markus POSCHNER signed for general management
He was described as »the most promising up-and-coming talent« by the Neue Zürcher Zeitung and the Tagesspiegel marvelled: »...have not heard Beethoven performed so breathtakingly in a long time«. We are delighted to announce the signing of Markus POSCHNER, winner of the German Conductors’ Prize 2004 for general management.
Markus Poschner came to the Komische Oper Berlin as Kapellmeister following his first engagement as Chief Conductor of the Georgisches Kammerorchester Ingolstadt. He was subsequently appointed Generalmusikdirektor of the Bremen Philharmonic and Bremen Theatre in 2007. His unusual programming, fascinating interpretations and outstanding work with the orchestra have resulted in a remarkable audience boom in the Hanseatic city.
