Dutch conductor Antony Hermus has an infectiously positive approach to music and life, and a natural talent for encouraging musicians and singers to give their very best. This shows in the quality and intensity of his performances, whether in the concert hall or the opera house.
He was Music Director in Dessau from 2009, where he was nominated “Conductor of the Year” by Opernwelt in 2010, 2011 and 2012, ending his tenure in summer 2015 with his first Ring cycle and promotion to Honorary Conductor. His dramatic flair, sense of line and clear-sighted approach are equally successful in the concert hall, where he has conducted concerts with orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra London, BBC Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Danish Radio Symphony, Bamberg Symphony, Orchestre de l’Opéra National de Paris and opera in Stuttgart, Göteborg, Strasbourg, Essen, Berlin and Paris.
In the coming months he returns a.o. to Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Seoul Philharmonic, Residentie Orkest and Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, and makes his debuts with Tonkünstler-Orchester Niederösterreich (Vienna Musikverein), Melbourne Symphony, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London and BBC Scottisch Symphony. He is currently Principal Guest of the North Netherlands Orchestra and Artistic Advisor of the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands.
