Andrea Sanguineti | New appointment as Music Director

Italian conductor Andrea Sanguineti has been announced as the new Music Director of the Aalto Musiktheater and the Essen Philharmonic Orchestra with an initial four-year contract from the 2023/24 season.

“In the past few years I have had the opportunity to work with the Essen Philharmonic on several occasions. Each time I had the enriching feeling that the chemistry between this renowned orchestra and me respectively my artistic ideas was right. The working environment was always highly professional, enjoyable and artistically goal-oriented. The fact that the Philharmonie and the Aalto-Theatre are not onlv architecturally outstanding, but above all acoustically exceptional, is of course a dream for a conductor and I consider it one of the best prerequisites for our mutual success. In this respect, it is a particular pleasure for me to continue and intensify the existing connection to the Essen Philharmonic as Music Director.”
