Reinhard Seifried

Reinhard Seifried was born in Freising in Germany and showed early gifts as a pianist before his interest in the orchestra, in song and opera, led him to study conducting as well as piano at the Munich Musikhochschule. He went on to study under Franco Ferrara in Siena and started his career as a repetiteur in various opera-houses, finally at the National Theatre in Mannheim. In 1977 he became conductor at the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz in Munich, serving from 1980 to 1984 as First Kapellmeister. He was personal assistant to Leonard Bernstein, particularly in the Munich production of Tristan and Isolde, and worked also as assistant with Rudolf Kempe. Rafael Kubelik and Karl Richter. Engagements with various orchestras at home and abroad were followed by appointment as General Music Director in Remscheid from the summer of 1991 to the autumn of 1993 and thereafter as General Music Director at the Oldenburg Staatstheater. Recent years have included many appearances with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, with which he has also made a number of recordings.
