About David

German conductor David Niemann is establishing himself as one of the most gifted conductors of his generation. Second prize winner of the 2015 Malko Conducting Competition, in February 2015 he was appointed Assistant Conductor at the Opéra Orchestre National Montpellier, where he worked alongside chief conductor Michael Schønwandt for the following three seasons. He is developing a broad mainstream repertoire and is equally a persuasive advocate of twentieth-century and contemporary repertoire.

Highlights of the 2023/24 season will include returning to the Royal Scottish National Orchestra to conduct the finals of the Scottish International Piano Competition, a full staging of the Mozart Requiem at Malmö Opera, with dancers from the Skånes Dansteater and choreography by Örjan Andersson, a revival of Elena Kats-Chernin’s Der herzlose Riese with Luxembourg Philharmonic and a regional tour with Orchestre de Picardie. The season will also see a return to Kammerakademie Potsdam and debut with Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen.

Recent highlights have included debut appearances with both Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Ensemble Modern (Hamburg Elbphilharmonie); a special interdisciplinary project with Junge Deutsche Philharmonie featuring new commissions with the most renowned artists of the German-speaking poetry slam scene; Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw, paired with Beethoven’s Choral Symphony, to open the Barcelona concert season of the Valles Symphony in the iconic Palau de la Musica. Engagements have also included a series of projects with Qatar Philharmonic, a number of visits to Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Luxembourg Philharmonic; many main season and regional concerts with the Opéra Orchestre National Montpellier and concerts with Opéra National de Lorraine and Orchestre Lyrique Région Avignon Provence.
