Andrew Manze

Andrew Manze is celebrated for his inspirational conducting, extensive and scholarly knowledge of repertoire, skillful communication, and boundless energy. He became principal conductor of Hannover’s NDR Radiophilharmonie in the 2015–16 season; his contract has been renewed, for the second time, until the summer of 2021. In addition to a busy touring schedule within Germany and Austria, they toured China and South Korea in 2016 with András Schiff. In 2017–18 they tour the U.K. and return to the Far East in 2019. They have embarked on a recording series for Pentatone, initially focusing on Mendelssohn’s orchestral works.

As a guest Mr. Manze has relationships with orchestras including the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Munich Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, the Hallé, Camerata Salzburg, and the Scottish and Swedish chamber orchestras. He is also a regular guest at the Mostly Mozart Festival and has a close relationship with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, with which he is in the process of recording the complete Vaughan Williams symphonies for Onyx Classics.

In 2017–18 he makes debuts with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Bamberg Symphony, NDR Elbphilharmonie, and the Melbourne Symphony, and returns to the New York and Los Angeles philharmonics.

From 2006 to 2014, Mr. Manze was principal conductor and artistic director of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, with which he made a number of recordings, including Beethoven’s Eroica (Harmonia Mundi) and a cycle of Brahms symphonies (CPO). From September 2010 to August 2014 he was associate guest conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and he was principal guest conductor of the Norwegian Radio Symphony Orchestra from 2008 to 2011.

After studying classics at Cambridge University, Mr. Manze focused on the violin and rapidly became a leading specialist in the world of historical performance practice. He became associate director of the Academy of Ancient Music in 1996, then artistic director of the English Concert from 2003 to 2007. As a violinist, he has released an array of CDs, many of them award-winners.

Andrew Manze, a fellow of the Royal Academy of Music and visiting professor at the Oslo Academy, has contributed to new editions of sonatas and concertos by Mozart and J.S. Bach published by Bärenreiter and Breitkopf & Härtel. He also teaches, edits, and writes about music, and broadcasts regularly on radio and television. In November 2011 he received the Rolf Schock Prize in Stockholm.
