Assistant Conductor: The Cleveland Orchestra Music Director: The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra
Following his appointment as the Assistant Conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra and the Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra last season, the German emerging star from Germany, Daniel Reith continues his tenure for a second season with the Orchestra.
Based in Cleveland, Ohio, Reith is showing great promise on the American orchestral scene. He is also an established talent in Scandinavia and has recently performed with the Oslo and Bergen philharmonic orchestras, Stavanger, Kristiansand and Trondheim symphony orchestras, Norwegian Radio Orchestra and Norwegian Armed Forces. Having served as Assistant Conductor at the Norwegian Opera for a production of Orpheus in the Underworld, Reith marks a return to Oslo for an orchestral concert with the Norwegian Opera.
Well versed in a wide range of repertoire, Reith has a special interest in the German repertoire. This includes the classical core repertoire and more particularly repertoire from the late romantic period. He fosters a strong dedication to revive repertoire from this time that has been or became unknown and share this with a current audience.
Reith is a winner of the prestigious Opptakt competition of Talent Norway, as well as one of their former conductor program participants. He holds degrees in conducting, piano and music theory from the Norwegian Academy of Music, Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt and Hochschule für Musik Freiburg.
