  • Ruth Reinhardt


    Ruth Reinhardt is quickly establishing herself as one of today’s most dynamic and nuanced young conductors, building a reputation for musical intelligence, programmatic imagination, and elegant performances.

    In the 2022–23 season, Reinhardt makes US debuts with the New York Philharmonic, Kansas City Symphony, Louisville Orchestra, and Rhode Island Philharmonic. European engagements include debuts with the Bamberg Symphony, Musikkollegium Winterthur, Munich Radio Orchestra, RSB Berlin, Gothenburg Symphony, Warsaw Philharmonic, Uppsala Chamber Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, and returns to Malmö Symphony and Kristiansand Symphony, among others.

    In recent seasons, Reinhardt has led the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Detroit, Houston, Baltimore, Fort Worth, and Milwaukee, as well as the Los Angeles and St. Paul Chamber Orchestras. In Europe, recent debuts include the Orchestre National de Radio France, Tonkünstler Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, DSO-Berlin, and MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony, among many others. She also returned to conduct The Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom Music Festival, the Seattle Symphony, and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, where she was assistant conductor from 2016 to 2018. 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. She attended Zurich’s University of the Arts (Zürcher Hochschule der Künste) to study violin with Rudolf Koelman, and began conducting studies with Constantin Trinks, with additional training under Johannes Schlaefli. She has also participated in conducting master classes with, among others, Bernard Haitink, Michael Tilson Thomas, David Zinman, Paavo Järvi, Neeme Järvi, Marin Alsop, and James Ross. 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).

  • Kirill Gerstein


    Pianist Kirill Gerstein’s heritage combines the traditions of Russian, American, and Central European music-making with an insatiable curiosity. These qualities and the relationships that 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, Gerstein’s playing is distinguished by a ferocious technique and discerning intelligence, matched with an energetic, imaginative musical presence that places him at the top of his profession.

  • Tal Rosner

    Video Artist (Adès)

    Artist and creative director Tal Rosner works closely with musicians, theater makers, and fashion brands — combining multiple layers of sound and visuals to create video installations and live performances. In 2021 he conceived MYTHOS — an entire evening dedicated to Sibelius’s tone poems incorporating video and lighting design — for Hannover Staatsoper, a production that was performed live and streamed globally. In 2020 he created a new video interpretation of Scriabin’s Prometheus: The Poem of Fire, commissioned by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to mark its 125th Anniversary.
