Kevin John Edusei joins Intermusica for worldwide representation
Intermusica is delighted to announce the worldwide management of Kevin John Edusei, Chief Conductor of the Munich Symphony Orchestra and Bern Opera House.
Edusei has been described as “charismatic and fearless” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). He is praised repeatedly for the drama and tension that he brings to his music-making, for his clear sense of architecture, attention to detail and elegant baton technique. He conducts a wide range of repertoire from baroque to contemporary, with a particular interest in German music from the early romantic period and early twentieth century, and shares his time equally between the concert hall and opera house.
Edusei’s career thus far has been based mainly in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands: symphonic conducting highlights have included Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Bamberg Symphony, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra and the Rotterdam Philharmonic with whom he conducted the European premiere of John Luther Adams’s Become Desert last month. As Chief Conductor of the Munich Symphony Orchestra he has worked tirelessly to push the boundaries of the concert programming and in recognition of these developments the orchestra was awarded the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal Government in 2018.
Edusei has also enjoyed a hugely successful tenure as Chief Conductor at Bern Opera House conducting a wide range of repertoire and this summer he concludes his tenure with a new production of Tristan und Isolde. Elsewhere he has conducted at various opera houses including Komische Oper Berlin, Semperoper Dresden and Hamburg State Opera and looks forward to debuts with English National Opera and Hannover State Opera in 2019/20.
