Biography

German conductor Kevin John Edusei is sought-after the world over. He is deeply committed to the creative elements of performance, presenting classical music in new formats, cultivating audiences, introducing music by under-represented composers, and conducting an eclectic range of repertoire. He is praised repeatedly for the drama and tension that he brings to his music-making, as well as for his attention to detail, sense of architecture, and the fluidity, warmth, and insight that he brings to his performances.

Edusei has conducted many of the major orchestras across the United States, including the Seattle, Detroit, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Dallas, Oregon, and National symphony orchestras. He appears regularly with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, with whom he holds the title of principal guest conductor. Additional engagements in recent seasons include the Munich Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony, London Philharmonic, and London Symphony orchestras, among others, and in the coming seasons he is scheduled to appear in major venues in Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, and London, and to make debuts at the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic. He works regularly with the Chineke! Orchestra, and recent highlights with them have included performances at London’s Royal Festival Hall, Lucerne Festival, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Snape Maltings, Helsinki and Festival, as well as at the BBC Proms, where he conducted a televised performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.

Kevin John Edusei is also an active opera conductor; in the autumn of 2022 he made his debut at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, conducting Puccini’s La bohème, a performance that was streamed across multiple cinemas worldwide; in 2024 he returns for a production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Previously he has conducted at the Dresden Semperoper, English National Opera, Hamburg Staatsoper, Vienna Volksoper, and Komische Oper Berlin.
