Marek Janowski



Marek Janowski is one of the great masters of the music of the German tradition. He is recognized throughout the world for his interpretation of Wagner, Richard Strauss, Bruckner, Brahms, Hindemith, and the composers of the Second Viennese School, and he has a distinguished discography in the repertoire. He became chief conductor of the Dresden Philharmonic in the 2019–20 season. He served as artistic director of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra (RSB), 2002–16; his Wagner opera cycle with the orchestra in Berlin’s Philharmonie in 2012 and 2013 was held to have set a new standard of performance in concertante opera, and was recorded live on Pentatone and released in 2016.

Recent highlights include conducting the Dresden Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Oslo Philharmonic, NHK Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, and Wagner’s Ring Cycle at Bayreuth. 

Born in Warsaw, Poland, and educated in Germany, Janowski has been a regular visitor to North America since his US debut in 1983 with the San Francisco Opera. He has since forged lasting relationships with many top orchestras including those of Boston, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and San Francisco. Other US orchestras and opera companies he has conducted include The Cleveland Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Metropolitan Opera, and Lyric Opera of Chicago. 

Marek Janowski, who enjoys an outstanding reputation among the premiere orchestras of Europe and North America, is acknowledged for his ability to create orchestras of international standing. His former posts include music director of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo (2000–05), chief conductor of the Dresden Philharmonic (2001–03), music director of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (1984–2000), principal guest conductor of the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (1997–99), chief conductor of the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne (1986–90), and general music director in Freiburg im Breisgau (1973–75) and Dortmund (1975–79).

Marek Janowski’s extensive and acclaimed discography over the past 30 years is represented on several labels and includes complete symphonic cycles and operas, many of which have been awarded international prizes. His recording of Wagner’s complete Ring Cycle with the Staatskapelle Dresden (1980–83) remains one of the most distinguished and esteemed offerings in a crowded field.
