As part of Intermusica’s commitment to nurturing young artists, we are delighted to be mentoring the young Austrian-Spanish conductor Teresa Riveiro Böhm. Riveiro Böhm was appointed as Leverhulme Conducting Fellow with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, in partnership with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 season. She is also winner of the Neeme-Järvi-Prize at the Gstaad Menuhin Festival 2019 and in 2018 was presented with the Special Award for Exceptional Artistic Achievement by the Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz.

She has assisted with opera productions such as Britten The Rape of Lucretia at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne, Mozart Die Zauberflöte at Oper Burg Gars in Austria, and other choral works, including Mendelssohn Elijah in Trier Cathedral as part of the Mosel Music Festival, and with Bruckner Symphony No.9 at Cologne Cathedral.

Future engagements in the 2019/20 season include concerts with the Liverpool Mozart Orchestra conducting Sibelius Symphony No.2, the Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz and the Basel Chamber Orchestra.
Riveiro Böhm has been selected to participate in the Conductors´ Academy with Paavo Järvi and the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich in spring 2020 and has also been appointed as Tanglewood Conducting Fellow in the summer of 2020.

"Only under the direction of [Neeme-Järvi Prize] winner Teresa Riveiro Böhm did the listener experience this lightness at Strauss - especially mastered by the great Carlos Kleiber - without any hint of superficiality."
