Marek Janowski


German-Polish conductor Marek Janowski provides forged a good, mostly European-based career by largely disengaging himself through the fast-track musical life. Disturbed from the dominance of regietheater in European countries, he vacated the opera pit in the first ’90s to focus on his symphonic repertory. In the brand new millennium, he assumed directorships of two second-tier, but possibly marvelous orchestras: one in Germany, another in Monte Carlo, looking for in each example to expand their repertories and build fresh viewers. After completing his research, Janowski used himself towards the nineteenth hundred years regimen that got created the best-prepared conductors. Offering like a répétiteur in Aachen to get a year, he shifted to an identical placement in Cologne for just two seasons. In 2 yrs at Düsseldorf, from 1964, he was afforded the chance to carry out some shows. After time for Cologne as 1st Kapellmeister, he was involved by Rolf Liebermann in Hamburg. Later on, during directorships in Freiburg and Dortmund, Janowski made an appearance as visitor conductor in Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich. In the past due ’70s, Janowski begun to come in American theaters, notably the Metropolitan Opera, and in Chicago and SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. In 1984, he recognized the directorship from the Nouvel Orchestre Philharmonique in Paris (afterwards referred to as the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France). During his 16 years using the Paris orchestra, Janowski elevated performance criteria and broadened his very own repertory, acquiring significant fluency in a number of French works. Apart from four years when he also offered as music movie director for Cologne’s Gürzenich-Orchester, Janowski committed himself to Paris, even while paring down his opera actions. Appreciation for several French composers, such as for example Messiaen, Roussel, d’Indy, and Dutilleux, provides informed his development selections for Monte Carlo. Using the Dresden Philharmonic, Janowski’s various other 2001 session, a long-term romantic relationship hinged upon the guaranteed construction of a fresh concert hall. Although Janowski mentioned that he could consider potential opera engagements had been he allowed his selection of movie director, his present reduction to opera is really a serious one. In 2008, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin provided Janowski the positioning of Artistic Movie director forever, after offering six years for the reason that position. He previously also became a member of Orchestre de la Suisse Romande as Musical Movie director in 2005, having stuffed identical positions with Orchestre Philharmonie de Monte-Carlo (2000-2005) as well as the Dresdener Philharmonie (2001-2003). His discography keeps estimable recordings of Fidelio, Strauss’ Die schweigsame Frau, Penderecki’s The Devils of Loudon, Wagner’s Band, Euryanthe, Oberon, and Hindemith’s Die Harmonie der Welt. As well as the symphonies of Roussel, Janowski’s orchestral recordings consist of Lutoslawski’s Concerto for orchestra and Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3.
