biography

The depth of his approach to complex scores of every style and epoch, coupled with a great dramaturgical creativity, has made Peter Rundel one of the most sought-after partners for leading European orchestras.

He is regularly invited to conduct the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, DSO Berlin, RSO Stuttgart and WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne and will further continue his close collaboration with the new SWR Symphony Orchestra. Guest appearances in 2016 and 2017 include Orchestre National de Lille, Brussels Philharmonic, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Orchestra del Teatro dell?Opera Roma and the Deutsche Radiophilharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern.

Peter Rundel has conducted the world premieres of opera productions at the Bavarian State Opera, Wiener Festwochen, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Bregenz Festival and Schwetzinger SWR Festspiele collaborating with such widely respected directors as Peter Konwitschny, Peter Mussbach, Philippe Arlaud, Heiner Goebbels, Reinhild Hoffmann, Carlus Padrissa (La Fura dels Baus) and Willy Decker. His work in opera includes traditional repertoire (he has conducted Die Zauberflöte at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and König Kandaules, Hansel and Gretel and The Marriage of Figaro at the Volksoper Vienna) as well as groundbreaking contemporary music theatre productions such as Stockhausen?s Donnerstag from LICHT, Massacre by Wolfgang Mitterer and the world premieres of Georg Friedrich Haas? Nacht, Isabel Mundry?s Ein Atemzug – die Odyssee and Emmanuel Nunes? operas Das Märchen and La Douce. The spectacular production of Prometheus, which he conducted at the Ruhrtriennale, was awarded the Carl-Orff-Preis in 2013.

Born in Friedrichshafen, Germany, Peter Rundel studied violin with Igor Ozim and Ramy Shevelov in Cologne, Hannover and New York, as well as conducting with Michael Gielen and Peter Eötvös. The composer Jack Brimberg was also one of his mentors in New York. From 1984 until 1996 he was a violinist in Ensemble Modern, to which he remains closely affiliated as a conductor. In the contemporary music world, he has enjoyed long associations with Ensemble Recherche, the Asko|Schönberg Ensemble and Klangforum Wien. He is also a regular guest with Ensemble intercontemporain and Ensemble musikFabrik.
Peter Rundel has been artistic director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of Flanders, as well as the founding artistic director of the Kammerakademie Potsdam. In January 2005, he was appointed artistic director of the Remix Ensemble Casa da Música in Porto and has since enjoyed great success with the contemporary music ensemble at important festivals throughout Europe.

Following the great international success of the 2011 production of the Ring Saga (Richard Wagner/Jonathan Dove), which was documented by the ARTE television channel, Peter Rundel led the world premiere of the Italian composer Francesco Filidei?s new opera Giordano Bruno in autumn 2015 in Porto, which was once again an international co-production with the Remix Ensemble and T&M Paris. Further performances took place in Strasbourg, Reggio Emilia, Milan, Caen and Paris. In March 2016, Peter Rundel also conducted Heiner Goebbels? De Materie in New York?s Armory Hall, a production that he premiered at the Ruhrtriennale in 2014. In season 2016/17 Peter Rundel is invited to the Teatro Argentino La Plata, again for Louis Andriessen?s De Materie, and will debut at the Gran Teatre del Liceu for the Spanish premiere of Luca Francesconi?s opera Quartett.

Peter Rundel has been awarded many prizes for his recordings of 20th century music, including the prestigious Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik (Nono, Prometeo; Kyburz, Ensemble- und Orchesterwerke; Reich, City Life; Furrer, Piano Concerto), the Grand Prix du Disque (Barraqué, complete work), the Echo Klassik (Sprechgesänge with the Ensemble Musikfabrik) and a Grammy Award nomination (Heiner Goebbels, Surrogate Cities).
