Karina Canellakis

Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra

Principal Guest Conductor of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin

Karina Canellakis is the newly appointed Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin. Internationally acclaimed for her emotionally charged performances, technical command and interpretive depth, Karina Canellakis has conducted many of the top orchestras in North America, Europe, and Australasia since winning the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award in 2016.

She makes several notable debuts in the 2019/20 season, including Philadelphia Orchestra, the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Atlanta and Minnesota, London Symphony, Munich Philharmonic and NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra. With a strong presence at European summer festivals, Karina also makes debut appearances at St Denis Festival with Orchestre Philharmonique du Radio France and Edinburgh International Festival with BBC Scottish Symphony, and returns to Bregenzer Festspiele with Wiener Symphoniker with a programme featuring the third act of Wagner’s Siegfried. Other notable re-invitations include Orchestre de Paris, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, the Houston and Toronto symphonies and the LA Philharmonic for performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

A sterling 2018/19 season saw Karina conduct the First Night of the Proms in London and the Nobel Prize Concert in Stockholm. Debuts included Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, St. Louis Symphony, Melbourne Symphony, London Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Dresdner Philharmonie and Oslo Philharmonic. She returned to Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the symphony orchestras of Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit and Milwaukee.

On the operatic stage, Karina returns this season to Opernhaus Zurich, where she will lead a fully staged production of Verdi’s Requiem. Last season she conducted critically acclaimed performances of Don Giovanni with the Curtis Opera Theater at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. She has also conducted Die Zauberflöte with Opernhaus Zurich, Le nozze di Figaro with Curtis Opera Theatre, and gave the world premiere of David Lang’s opera The Loser at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. In 2017 Karina led Peter Maxwell Davies’ final opera The Hogboon with Luxembourg Philharmonic.

Already known to many in the classical music world for her virtuoso violin playing, Karina was initially encouraged to pursue conducting by Sir Simon Rattle while she was playing regularly in the Berlin Philharmonic for two years as a member of their Orchester-Akademie. In addition to appearing frequently as a soloist with various North American orchestras, she subsequently played regularly in the Chicago Symphony for over three years and appeared on several occasions as guest concertmaster of the Bergen Philharmonic in Norway. She also spent many summers performing at the Marlboro Music Festival. She plays a 1782 Mantegazza violin on generous loan from a private patron.

Karina Canellakis previously served as Assistant Conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. She is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Juilliard School.

Karina Canellakis

Chefdirigentin, Radio Filharmonisch Orkest

Erste Gastdirigentin, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin

Karina Canellakis ist die neu ernannte Chefdirigentin des Radio-Philharmonischen Orchesters der Niederlande und Erste Gastdirigentin des Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchesters Berlin. International für ihre emotionsgeladenen Aufführungen, ihre technische Brillanz und ihre interpretatorische Tiefe gefeiert, stand sie nach dem Gewinn des Sir Georg Solti Dirigierpreises 2016 bis heute bereits am Pult vieler Spitzenorchester in Nordamerika, Europa und Australien.

In der Spielzeit 2019/2020 gibt Karina einige bemerkenswerte Debüts, so beim Philadelphia Orchestra, den Sinfonieorchestern von San Francisco, Atlanta und Minnesota, dem London Symphony Orchestra, den Münchner Philharmonikern und dem NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester. Als regelmäßiger Gast bei europäischen Sommerfestivals debütiert sie in dieser Saison beim Festival de Saint-Denis mit dem Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France sowie beim Edinburgh International Festival mit dem BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Zudem kehrt sie mit den Wiener Symphonikern für ein Konzertprogramm mit dem dritten Aufzug von Wagners „Siegfried“ zu den Bregenzer Festspielen zurück. Weitere Wiedereinladungen erhielt sie vom Orchestre de Paris, vom Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, von den Sinfonieorchestern von Houston und Toronto sowie vom Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra für Konzerte in der Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Im Laufe ihrer fulminanten Saison 2018/2019 leitete Karina sowohl die „First Night of the Proms“ in London als auch das Nobelpreis-Konzert in Stockholm. Ihre Spielzeitdebüts führten sie zum Orchestre Philharmonique de Montréal, zum St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, zum Melbourne Symphony Orchestra und zum London Philharmonic Orchestra, zum Deutschen Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, zur Dresdner Philharmonie und zum Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. Zum wiederholten Male dirigierte sie das Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, das Scottish Chamber Orchestra sowie die Sinfonieorchester von Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit und Milwaukee.

Im Opernbereich kehrt Karina in der Saison 2019/2020 ans Opernhaus Zürich zurück, wo sie eine szenische Produktion von Verdis Requiem dirigiert. In der Spielzeit 2018/2019 leitete sie mehrere von der Presse hochgelobte Aufführungen von „Don Giovanni“ mit dem Curtis Opera Theatre im Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. In den Jahren zuvor war sie mit „Die Zauberflöte“ am Opernhaus Zürich, mit „Le nozze die Figaro“ mit dem Curtis Opera Theatre, mit der Weltpremiere von David Langs Oper „The Loser“ in der Brooklyn Academy of Music sowie mit Sir Peter Maxwell Davies‘ letzter Oper „The Hogboon“ mit dem Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg zu erleben.

Vielen in der Klassikwelt war Karina Canellakis zunächst für ihr virtuoses Geigenspiel bekannt, bevor sie während ihrer zweijährigen Zeit als Violinistin in der Orchesterakademie der Berliner Philharmoniker von Sir Simon Rattle ermutigt wurde, sich verstärkt dem Dirigieren zu widmen. Nach zahlreichen Auftritten als Solistin mit vielen nordamerikanischen Orchestern spielte sie über drei Jahre lang im Chicago Symphony Orchestra, trat bei einigen Gelegenheiten als Gastkonzertmeisterin des Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in Norwegen in Erscheinung und verbrachte viele Sommer als Kammermusikerin beim Marlboro Music Festival. Sie spielt eine Mantegazza Violine von 1782, die eine großzügige Leihgabe eines privaten Mäzens ist.

Die gebürtige Amerikanerin Karina Canellakis ist Absolventin des Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia sowie der Juilliard School in New York und war für einige Zeit Assistant Conductor beim Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

“Canellakis made the Beethoven sound as fresh as a brand-new piece. It wasn’t that she imposed any eccentricities, but that she brought out the inherent drama — the contrasts of volume and texture, the surprising accents, the slow movement’s heartfelt lyricism (with exquisite clarinet solos from Gregory Raden). The orchestra supplied every asked-for nuance in a performance compelling start to finish.”
Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News
May 10, 2019
“Canellakis’ high-wire act was a dare. The players were kept on the edge of their seats. Something could have derailed it at any moment. Nothing did. It was great.”
LA Times, Mark Swed
April 24, 2018
“Canellakis did a remarkable job of finding the lyrical radiance and ebb-and-flow of the opening movement (Brahms 3rd symphony with the Vancouver Symphony), putting it together with coherence, beautifully shaped string lines and the needed dramatic force. This was all about beauty and poetry. It is inspiring to see a young conductor exhibiting so much craft and thought – and so much love of the music”
Seen and Heard International, Geoffrey Newman
April 14, 2018
“In Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7 (National Arts Center Orchestra, Ottawa), Canellakis delivered passion and pathos. The opening movement was weighty with brooding stoicism, carried on the glowing gravitas of Larry Vine’s horn solos. The second movement was expressed with the tenderest affection and blue-sky calm; the Scherzo was gracefully articulated, nimble in its refined rusticism. The robust finale was propelled by an almost operatic sense of drama and fatalism; Canellakis allowing the tension to steam along irresistibly until the implacable end.”
Artsfile, Natasha Gautie
January 11, 2018
“Karina Canellakis led the orchestra in a fierce and full-blooded reading of one of the canon’s great Romantic symphonies…”
Paul Kosidowski, Milwaukee Magazine
November 10, 2017
“Those big moments were insistent and regal, standing in thrilling contrast to the symphony’s most touching, tender melodies.”
Elaine Schmidt, journal sentinel
November 10, 2017
“Canellakis’s Dvořák was high, lucid and bright from start to finish.”
David Nice, theartsdesk.com
September 6, 2017
“Für diese großartige Beethoven-Interpretation dankte das Publikum mit anhaltenden Beifallsstürmen.”

“Canellakis captured the intense feeling at the heart of the music.”
Paul Kosidowski, Milwaukee Magazine
March 14, 2017
“Canellakis and the orchestra moved with absolute conviction from atmospheric sounds and cloudy harmonies to direct, simple statements, giving a taut, crisp performance, making sections of it fairly crackle with musical energy and tension”
Elaine Schmidt, USA Today Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Though expressive and engaged, she is disinclined to play to the gallery. Intentions are clear, with no histrionics or fuss. And the results speak for themselves.”
David Gordon Duke, Vancouver Sun
October 16, 2016
“Dirigentin Karina Canellakis zeigte bei der Styriarte in Ludwig van Beethovens 2. und 7. Symphonie viel Kraft und starke Kontraste.”
Eva Schulz, Kleine Zeitung
June 28, 2016
“With gestures clear yet expressive, Canellakis realized every emotional import, managing every transition with assurance, building climaxes with inevitability.”
Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News
