We welcome the distinguished German conductor Karl-Heinz Steffens for worldwide general management.

Recently appointed Music Director of Den Norske Opera & Ballett in Oslo, the German conductor Karl-Heinz Steffens is recognised as a conductor of great distinction in both operatic and symphonic worlds. As well as his guest engagements with ensembles such as the Bavarian Radio Symphony, the Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna Symphony Orchestras, Steffens takes particular pleasure in undertaking substantial surveys of repertoire such as the Bruckner symphony cycle with his own orchestra, the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz in Ludwigshafen, and the Brahms symphony cycle with the Philharmonia in London. He is also regularly invited to opera houses such as the Berlin Staatsoper Unter den Linden and the Teatro alla Scala.
