Manfred Honeck

Conductor

Manfred Honeck has served as music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) since the 2008–09 season. His widely celebrated performances and distinctive interpretations continue to receive international recognition, and he and the PSO regularly perform together in major music capitals and festivals, including the BBC Proms, Lucerne Festival, Vienna’s Musikverein, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. An extensive tour of Europe is scheduled for spring 2016. Manfred Honeck’s successful work with the PSO is also being documented on recordings with the Reference label; the CDs of works by Richard Strauss, Bruckner, Beethoven, and others have been greeting with acclaim, and the recording of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 and the Symphonic Suite from Janáček’s opera Jenufa, conceptualized by Honeck himself, was nominated for a Grammy.

Born in Austria, Manfred Honeck began his career as conductor of Vienna’s Jeunesse Orchestra, which he co-founded, and as assistant to Claudio Abbado at the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra in Vienna. He was subsequently engaged by the Zurich Opera House, where he received the European Conductor’s Award in 1993. In 1996 he began a three-year appointment as one of three main conductors of the MDR Symphony Orchestra Leipzig, and in 1997 he served as music director at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo for a year. He also was principal guest conductor of the Oslo Philharmonic for several years; was music director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra Stockholm (2000–06); and served as principal guest conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra (2008–11), a position he resumed for another three years beginning in 2013. As music director of the Stuttgart Staatsoper (2007–11) he conducted premiere productions of Berlioz’s Les Troyens, Mozart’s Idomeneo, Verdi’s Aida, Ricard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites, and Wagner’s Lohengrin and Parsifal.

As a guest conductor, Manfred Honeck has appeared with the leading orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, and Vienna Philharmonic. In the U.S. he has conducted the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras, The Cleveland Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Boston, Chicago, and National symphony orchestras.
