Michael Wendeberg’s interpretation was gripping, with sharp and accurate dotted notes and impactful climaxes, yet also with room for rest and contemplation.

Classical repertoire – from Bach to Schoenberg – comes to conductor and pianist Michael Wendeberg with just as much ease as his dedicated work with new music. As of 2020/21 he has been appointed Chief Conductor Opera at the Bühnen Halle (Saale), where he has held the position of “Erster Kapellmeister” since 2016. In the current season he is conducting first performances of Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, and Paderewski‘s Manru among others.
