Karina Canellakis

Conductor

Winner of the 2016 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award, Karina Canellakis is internationally acclaimed for her emotionally charged performances, technical command and interpretive depth. She made her European conducting debut in 2015 with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in Graz, Austria, replacing the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt, returning the following June to conduct Concentus Musicus Wien in four symphonies of a Beethoven Cycle. She first made headlines in 2014 filling in at the last-minute for Jaap van Zweden in Shostakovich Symphony No. 8 with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, where she held the position of Assistant Conductor for two seasons.

Ms. Canellakis begins the 2017/18 season with her debut at the BBC Proms in London with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and a return to the Zurich Opera to conduct Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. Notable debuts this season include the Orchestre de Paris, Wiener Symphoniker, Rundfunk Sinfonie Orchester Berlin, Guerzenich Cologne, Bamberger Symphoniker, National Orchestra of Spain, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, the Hallé Orchestra and Seattle Symphony; alongside re-invitations to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Orchestra, Danish National Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and Vancouver Symphony.

Last season, Ms. Canellakis debuted with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Orchestre National de Lyon, and Toronto and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestras. She conducted the world premiere of David Lang’s new opera The Loser at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Peter Maxwell Davies’ new opera The Hogboon with the Luxembourg Philharmonic, and a fully staged production of Verdi’s Requiem at the Zurich Opera.

Previous seasons have featured orchestral debuts with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, Cincinnati, Detroit, Houston and San Diego Symphony Orchestras and at the Mostly Mozart Festival, New York, leading the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). In 2016 Ms. Canellakis conducted Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro with the Curtis Opera Theatre at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.

Already known to many in the classical music world for her virtuoso violin playing, Ms. Canellakis 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 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 spent many summers performing at the Marlboro Music Festival. She plays a 1782 Mantegazza violin on generous loan to her from a private patron.

Ms. Canellakis is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Juilliard School. Her other major mentors have been Alan Gilbert and Fabio Luisi. She was born and raised in New York City and speaks French, German and Italian.

Karina Canellakis

Dirigentin

Karina Canellakis, die Gewinnerin des Dirigentenwettbewerbs Sir Georg Solti 2016, wird international für ihre emotional aufgeladenen Auftritte, ihre technischen Fähigkeiten und ihre eindrückliche Tiefe gelobt. 2015 gab sie ihr Debüt in Europa gemeinsam mit dem Chamber Orchestra of Europe in Graz, als sie kurzfristig Nikolaous Harnoncourt ersetzte. Im Juni des folgenden Jahres kehrte sie zurück, um den Concentus Musicus Wien in vier Sinfonien eines Beethoven-Zyklus zu leiten. Erstmals machte Canellakis bereits 2014 Schlagzeilen, als sie bei einer Aufführung von Schostakowitschs Sinfonie Nr. 8 mit dem Dallas Symphony Orchestra, wo sie zwei Jahre lang als Assistenz-Dirigentin tätig war, in letzter Minute für Jaap van Zweden einsprang.

Canellakis beginnt die Saison 2017/18 mit ihrem ersten Auftritt bei den BBC Proms in London zusammen mit dem BBC Symphony Orchestra und ihrer Rückkehr zum Opernhaus Zürich, wo sie Mozarts «Die Zauberflöte» leiten wird. Darüber hinaus gibt sie ihre Debüts z.B. beim Orchestre de Paris, bei den Wiener Symphonikern, beim Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, beim Gürzenich-Orchester Köln, bei den Bambergern Symphonikern, beim Orquesta Nacional de Espana, beim Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, beim britischen Hallé Orchestra und beim Seattle Symphony. Dazu kommen Wiedereinladungen des Kungliga Filharmoniska Orkestern, des Sveriges Radios Symphoniorkester, des DR Symphoni Orkestret, dem Scottish Chamber Orchestra, dem Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra und der Vancouver Symphony.

In der letzten Saison gab die Amerikanerin ihr Debüt beim Hollywood Bowl mit dem Los Angeles Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Orchestre National de Lyon und bei den Sinfonieorchestern Toronto und Milwaukee. Sie dirigierte die Uraufführung von David Langs neuer Oper «The Loser» an der Brooklyn Academy of Music, Peter Maxwell Davies’ neuer Oper «The Hogboon» mit dem Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg und eine Bühnenproduktion von Giuseppe Verdis «Requiem» am Opernhaus Zürich.

Zuvor debütierte Karina Canellakis beim Hong Kong Philharmonic und den Sinfonieorchestern in Cincinnati, Detroit, Houston und San Diego sowie beim Mostly Mozart Festival in New York mit dem International Contemporary Ensemble. 2016 dirigierte sie Mozarts «Le nozze di Figaro» mit dem Curtis Opera Theatre im Kimmel Center Philadelphia.

Karina Canellakis machte sich zunächst für ihr virtuoses Geigenspiel einen Namen in der Klassikwelt und wurde von Sir Simon Rattle auch zum Dirigieren gebracht, als sie zwei Jahre lang Mitglied der Orchester-Akademie der Berliner Philharmoniker war. Als Solistin an der Violine trat sie mit nordamerikanischen Orchestern auf, spielte drei Jahre lang regelmäßig mit der Chicago Symphony und war mehrfach Gast-Konzertmeisterin beim Philharmonischen Orchester der Stadt Bergen in Norwegen. Zudem gastierte sie häufig beim Marlboro Music Festival. Sie spielt eine Violine von Mantegazza aus dem Jahr 1782, die ihr als großzügige Leihgabe aus Privatbesitz zur Verfügung gestellt wird.

Karina Canellakis ist Absolventin des Curtis Institute of Music und der Juilliard School in New York. Weitere Mentoren waren Alan Gilbert und Fabio Luisi.
