Biography – about the artist.

Chefdirigent Tiroler Symphonieorchester Innsbruck

 

Kerem Hasan commences his third season as chief conductor of the Tiroler Symphonieorchester Innsbruck, after starting this position in September 2019. In Summer 2017, the young British conductor laid the foundations for a very promising international career by winning the Nestlé and Salzburg Young Conductors Award. Prior to this, he had already attracted attention as a finalist in the Donatella Flick Conducting Competition in London and as Associate Conductor of the Welsh National Opera. 

Apart from his concerts with the Tiroler Symphonieorchester, Kerem also returns to the Tiroler Landestheater in Innsbruck to conduct Rossini’s „L'italiana in Algeri“ and Mozart‘s „Die Zauberflöte“. Further highlights of his 2021/22 season include opera productions at the English National Opera („Così van tutte“) and in Glyndebourne („The Rake’s Progress“) as well as concerts with the Tonkünstlerorchester Niederösterreich, Borusan Philharmonic Orchestra and Antwerp Symphony Orchestra. Furthermore, Hasan debuts with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and returns to the ORF Radio Symphonieorchester Wien, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Noord Nederlands Orkest. June 2022 sees him making his US debut with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra followed by concerts with the Minnesota Orchestra and at the Aspen Music Festival.

Hasan’s previous engagements include opera performances in Glyndebourne (“Die Zauberflöte”), with the Welsh National Opera (“La Forza del Destino”) and at the Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck (“Samson et Dalila”, “Rigoletto”, “The Rape of Lucretia”). He has conducted concerts with the Concertgebouworkest, London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, SWR Symphonieorchester, MDR Sinfonieorchester, ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Filarmonica Teatro La Fenice and New Japan Philharmonic. In masterclasses, he received valuable advice from David Zinman, Edo de Waart, Gianandrea Noseda and Esa-Pekka Salonen. On the invitation of his mentor Bernard Haitink, he assisted him with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Concertgebouworkest and Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. 

In the summer of 2016, Kerem Hasan first attended the Conducting Academy of the Aspen Music Festival, where he worked with Robert Spano. In 2017, he returned to the festival as Conducting Fellow and was subsequently awarded the Aspen Conductor Prize. As Assistant Conductor, he was in Aspen again in summer 2018. 

Kerem Hasan, born in London in 1992, studied piano and conducting at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Later, he continued his education at the Zurich University of the Arts with Johannes Schlaefli.

Press.

„On the podium stood Kerem Hasan, and he conducted the orchestra as if he had been born to do so.“

Politiken, Thomas Michelsen, 24.11.2018

„The 26-year-old Londoner is undoubtedly one of the greatest conducting talents of his generation.“

Drehpunkt Kultur, Gottfried Franz Kasparek, 07.08.2018

„This 26-year-old takes Haitink's interpretation remarkably smoothly, albeit with less bitterness and less hopelessness. The musicians applauded, this is the guy they are going to keep an eye on.“

De Volkskrant, Guido van Oorschot, 10.06.2018
