Dozent: Alfred Wachs 

„Conductor Daniel Alfred Wachs made his debut on the international stage with the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, leading a world première by Toshio Hosokawa at the Grosses Festspielhaus. The Austrian press praised: “Engaging, rhythmically inspired, precise in its execution, the ‘Mambo’ was equal to a performance by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra

In the fall of 2021, he led the Swedish chamber ensemble Musica Vitae and violinist Benjamin Schmid to critical acclaim on a tour that concluded at the Reina Sofia Auditorium in Madrid. Upcoming engagements include Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony at Waldsassen Abbey in Germany and conducting master classes at the Wolfgang Sawallisch Institute.

A pianist as well as a conductor, Wachs’ performance with the Minnesota Orchestra “proved a revelation, delivering a technically impeccable, emotionally powerful performance of two Mozart piano concertos and a pair of solo works,” raved the St. Paul Pioneer Press. With the encouragement of Zubin Mehta, Wachs began his studies with Enrique Barenboim in Tel Aviv before pursuing studies at the Zürich Academy and graduating from The Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School. He has also participated at such festivals as Aspen, Tanglewood and Verbier, where he worked with Christof von Dohnanyi, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Hans Graf and David Zinman. Wachs has prepared orchestras for Valery Gergiev and Vladimir Spivakov and has served as Assistant Conductor to Osmo Vänskä at the Minnesota Orchestra and at the National Orchestra of France under Kurt Masur and Sir Colin Davis. Additionally, he served as cover conductor for the Houston Symphony and for the Rotterdam Philharmonic on tour.

Wachs has worked with the Auckland Philharmonia, the National Symphony in Washington D.C., the Fort Worth Symphony, the Oakland Symphony, the Sarasota Orchestra, the Monterey Symphony, Palm Beach Symphony, Sinfonia Gulf Coast, the Spartanburg Philharmonic, and was a resident conductor at New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center. Wachs also served as assistant conductor at the Cincinnati Opera and for the French première of Bernstein’s Candide at the Théâtre du Châtelet.

Wachs has garnered over twenty years of experience as music director and conductor of The Philharmonic Society of Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra (OCYSO) in Southern California and The Chapman Orchestra, while also directing the only undergraduate conducting program in the United States. Wachs’ work has been lauded by such publications as Musical America, Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register which in its review of a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and the West Coast Premiere and co-commission of Mark Anthony Turnage’s “Frieze” wrote: “Wachs guided the ensemble with energy, precision, and a welcome sense of clarity and poise. The performance wasn’t just good by standards for younger performers, but forceful and exuberant by any standard: genuinely inspiring, technically proficient, structurally sound. The combined choruses were a powerhouse.” During Wachs’ tenure, OCYSO toured Europe twice and performed on the stage of the Walt Disney Concert Hall at the invitation of the LA Philharmonic. Both OCYSO and The Chapman Orchestra were broadcast on PBS and were recipients of the American Prize.

An accomplished opera conductor and collaborative pianist, Wachs has led Albert Herring, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi, La Rondine, Cosi fan tutte, Le Nozze di Figaro, The Magic Flute, The Impresario, Amahl and the Night Visitors, acts from La Traviata and Die Fledermaus and the operas La Divina and Signor Deluso by Pasatieri.

Wachs now resides in Europe.“
