Welcome to my new blog about what goes on in a classical conductor’s mind – as I’m very new to this world it might take me some time to get to know all the features. I’ll try to post as much as possible.
My main aim in writing this is that I want to share the experiences of a classical conductor as well as what is going on in his mind, since most people simply don’t know what exactly it is that we’re doing, apart from standing in front of an orchestra and waving our arms.
I studied orchestral conducting at the University for Music and Performing Arts of Graz, Austria and currently teach conducting, conducting practice and score analysis there. I’m the music director of several orchestras, e.g. the Franz Schmidt Kammerorchester and the Camerata Medica Wien in Vienna as well as the Grazer Akademische Philharmonie at Graz.
