MARKUS POSCHNER

Chief Conductor Bruckner Orchester Linz


Born in Munich, Markus Poschner was awarded the German Conductors Prize in 2004 and has since then received regular invitations from top orchestras both on the national and international platform. Nowadays he is above-all known for his breath-taking interpretations and recordings of Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner and Mahler.

Having studied at the local conservatory in Munich and as assistant of Sir Roger Norrington and Sir Colin Davies, Markus Poschner became Kapellmeister at Komische Oper Berlin in 2006. His collaboration with directors like Nicolas Stemann, Hans Neuenfels, Peter Konwitschny, Andreas Homoki and Sebastian Baumgarten lead the Neue Zürcher Zeitung to describe him as the »most promising up-and-coming talent«.

Since 2017/18 Markus Poschner is Music Director at the Brucknerorchester and Theatre Linz, succeeding Dennis Russell Davies.

Starting with the 2015/16 season Markus Poschner assumed the position of Principal Conductor of the only Swiss radio orchestra: the Orchestra della Svizzera italiana in Lugano. At the beginning of his first season he presented a complete Brahms-cycle in the much-praised new concert hall LAC situated on the shore of lake Lugano. In 2016/17 he and the orchestra embarked their first European tour together, presenting the well-received DVD-recording of their Brahms-cycle. This publication was awarded with a renowned ICMA-award in early 2018.

From 2007-2017 Markus Poschner held the position of GMD of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. While being also an excellent Jazz-pianist, he developed new ideas and forms of contemporary music theatre together with director Benedikt von Peter and created a lasting audience boom.
 
Markus Poschner has been invited by many of the most renowned orchestras and opera houses, including e.g. Staatskapelle Dresden, Dresdner Philharmonie, Bamberger Symphon¬iker, Münchner Philharmoniker, Wiener Symphoniker, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the radio symphony orchestras in Berlin, Cologne, Leipzig, Stuttgart and Vienna, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Wiener Kammerorchester, Orchestre Philhar¬monique de Monte Carlo, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Metropolitan Orchestra, as well as Komische Oper Berlin, Staatsoper Berlin and Hamburg, and the opera houses in Cologne, Frankfurt and Zurich.

Markus Poschner enjoys close artistic ties with many of the above orchestras and opera houses, as e.g. with Staatsoper Berlin, where he had his debut in 2014 with a new production of the Wagner/Jelinek-evening Rein Gold directed by Nicolas Stemann. He also followed the invitation to conduct Tosca, The Magic Flute and The Flying Dutchman. His collaboration with the opera houses in Frankfurt (Messiah in 2016) and Zurich (Fidelio in 2015) equally led to immediate re-invitations. In season 2017/18 he will lead the production of The Flying Dutchman at the Opera in Zurich.

From 2010-14 Markus Poschner was First Guest Conductor of Dresdner Philharmonie, conducting the entire Beethoven symphonies. He remains a regular guest of the orchestra and is currently presenting a Mahler-cycle. Since 2002 Markus Poschner has also been First Guest Conductor of Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, on which he has an equally strong formative influence as with the legendary Georgisches Kammerorchester Ingolstadt which he led as Chief Conductor from 2000-06.

In July 2010 Markus Poschner was appointed professor at the Institute of Musicology by the University of Bremen.
