biography

The depth of Peter Rundel’s approach to complex music of various styles and epochs and his interpretive creativity have made him one of the most sought-after partners for leading European orchestras.

He is regularly invited to conduct the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, DSO Berlin, NDR Symphony Orchestra and WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne and is continuing his close collaboration with the new SWR Symphony Orchestra. Recent international guest appearances have included the Orchestre National de Lille, Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, Brussels Philharmonic, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino as well as the Orchestra del Teatro dell’Opera Roma.

Following a successful start to the season 2017/18 at the Salzburg Festival (leading a project with Martin Grubinger) and the Musikfest Berlin (conducting the SWR Symphony Orchestra), he will make his debut appearance with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and return to lead orchestras including the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Bavarian Radio Symphony and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France.

Peter Rundel has conducted the world premieres of opera productions at the Bavarian State Opera, Wiener Festwochen, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Bregenz Festival and Schwetzinger SWR Festspiele and has collaborated with respected directors such 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 as well as the world premieres of Georg Friedrich Haas‘ Nacht and Bluthaus, Isabel Mundry’s Ein Atemzug – die Odyssee and Emmanuel Nunes’ Das Märchen and La Douce. The spectacular production of Prometheus, which he led at the Ruhrtriennale, was awarded the Carl-Orff-Preis in 2013. In 2016 and 2017, Peter Rundel conducted Heiner Goebbels’ De Materie in New York’s Armory Hall and at Teatro Argentino La Plata, a production that he premiered at the Ruhrtriennale in 2014.

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. In New York he was mentored by the composer Jack Brimberg. 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 and was 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.

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).
