First invitation to the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande: 18 November 2020
Christoph Koncz quickly established himself on the international scene as a conductor after his success as solo violinist, chamber musician and concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
In March 2019 he was appointed conductor of the Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss am Rhein, after conducting the orchestra the previous summer. He also enjoys a very close relationship with the renowned French period-instrument ensemble Les Musiciens du Louvre, of which Marc Minkowski recently appointed him Principal Guest Conductor.
In the 2019-2020 season, he made his debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Casino de Berne, conducted the Camerata RCO in Schubert and Rossini at the Cartagena Festival, and returned to the Berlin Philharmonic to conduct the Berlin Symphony Orchestra in a program ranging from Handel to Gershwin.
Born in 1987 into a family of musicians, Koncz entered the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna at the age of 6, where he took courses with Mark Stringer and masterclasses with Daniel Barenboim and Daniel Harding.
