  • Ruth Reinhardt


    Ruth Reinhardt is quickly establishing herself as one of today’s most dynamic and nuanced young conductors, building a reputation for her musical intelligence, programmatic imagination, and elegant performances. Recent highlights include debuts with the Detroit, Baltimore, Fort Worth, Omaha, Orlando, Portland, and Sarasota symphony orchestras, and with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre national d’Île de France, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony, and Helsingborg Symphony, among others. She has also made successful returns to The Cleveland, Seattle Symphony, Malmö Symphony, Impuls Festival (in Germany), and Kristiansand Symphony orchestras, as well as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, where she served as assistant conductor for two seasons under Jaap van Zweden, a post she concluded at the end of the 2017–18 season. In the summers of 2018 and 2019 she served as the assistant conductor of the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra.

    Ruth Reinhardt received her master’s degree in conducting from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Alan Gilbert. Born in Saarbrücken, Germany, she began studying violin at an early age and sang in the children’s chorus of Saarländisches Staatstheater, Saarbrücken’s opera company. A precocious talent, by age 17 she had already composed and conducted an opera, for and performed by the children and youth of her hometown.

    Prior to her appointment in Dallas, Ms. Reinhardt was a Dudamel Fellow of the Los Angeles Philharmonic (2017–18), conducting fellow at the Seattle Symphony (2015–16) and Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Tanglewood Music Center (2015), and an associate conducting fellow of the Taki Concordia program (2015–17). During her time at Juilliard, she led The Juilliard Orchestra as well as concerts with New York City’s ÆON Ensemble, with which she led a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet.

These qualities, together with relationships he has developed with orchestras, conductors, instrumentalists, singers, and composers, have led him to explore a huge spectrum of repertoire both new and old. From Bach to Adès, his playing is distinguished by clarity of expression, discerning intelligence and virtuosity, and an energetic, imaginative musical presence that places him at the top of his profession.
