Michael Brandstaetter - Conductor

Musical drama in its various forms has for a long time been at the heart of my artistic passion. As Deputy Principal Conductor at Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz in Munich, I lead operas, operettas, and ballets from all eras.

Outside the world of opera, I am focusing my curiosity on symphonic music by living composers. To make contemporary orchestral music accessible to a broader audience, I founded two unique projects:

  • #NoDeadComposers
    is an innovative concert format for symphony orchestras. I offer to curate, rehearse and perform a tailor-made programme of contemporary orchestral music that perfectly resonates with the audience.

  • nomus21
    is an agency for new orchestral music based in Vienna. nomus21 presents symphonic music by living composers online and promotes it to orchestras around the world.

Let us work together to transform our concert halls from graveyards full of dead composers to places where our lives, emotions and music deeply move our audiences!
