Acclaimed as one of the most exciting conductors of his generation, Moritz Gnann has received outstanding reviews for his fresh approach to a wide range of symphonic and operatic repertoire reaching from renaissance to contemporary.
Mentored by Andris Nelsons, Moritz has finished a successful tenure as Assistant Conductor with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, making his debut with the orchestra at Tanglewood in August 2016, followed by subscription concerts at Boston Symphony Hall to high critical acclaim.
As guest conductor, Moritz appears regularly in his native Germany. He works regularly with the Deutsche Oper Berlin, next in autumn 2018 for The Cunning Little Vixen after performances of Berlioz Romeo et Juliette, L’elisir d’amore and Billy Budd. He is also invited regularly to the Staatskapelle Dresden at the Semperoper, most recently for Die Zauberflöte, Le Nozze di Figaro and Hänsel und Gretel and in the 2018/19 season he will make his debut with the Leipzig Gewandhaus and the MDR Symphony Orchestra Leipzig.
