Markus Stenz will be appointed Professor of Conducting at the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin
The internationally renowned conductor Markus Stenz will be appointed Professor of Conducting at the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin in the summer semester of 2023. With him, the school is gaining an outstanding and experienced artist for its conducting department.
In November 2022, the conducting class and the symphony orchestra of the school already worked together with Markus Stenz in a successful orchestra workshop week. He will also conduct the school’s symphony orchestra for the first time in the upcoming summer semester 2023 on 12 June at the Konzerthaus Berlin. The programme includes Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony.
“I am very excited about the new task at the Hanns Eisler School of Music with its outstanding personalities. I am honoured to accept the call as successor to Professor Christian Ehwald and to continue his outstanding work and rich tradition. I am curious about the views and approaches of the future generation of conductors. At the same time, the professorship allows me to pass on my knowledge and skills, as well as the experiences that have been and continue to be important for me as an artist. As a conductor, you never stop learning.”
