Arild Remmereit: Over a five-month period in 2005, Norwegian conductor Arild Remmereit made five dramatic debuts with the Pittsburgh Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Milan’s Filarmonica della Scala, Munich Philharmonic and the Vienna Symphony, quickly establishing himself as a major talent on the international scene. The New York Times wrote of his Pittsburgh debut, “He came, he conducted, he conquered… Sensational” and the Wiener Zeitung called Remmereit’s interpretation of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 with the Vienna Symphony the “sensation of the evening. [The orchestra] played with unequaled precision…”
Mr. Remmereit was immediately re-engaged in Pittsburgh, Vienna, Milan and Baltimore and since then has also returned to a number of other prominent orchestras as well, including the National Arts Centre Orchestra (Ottawa), England’s Hallé Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic (New York), New Jersey Symphony and the Seoul Philharmonic, among many others. During the 2009-10 season he makes his debut with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, L’Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and Lahti Symphony Orchestra; returns to Rochester (where he first appeared last season to widespread acclaim), New Jersey, Seattle and Dublin’s RTE National Symphony; and conducts Le Nozze di Figaro at the Teatro Comunale di Firenze.
