Daniel Reith was the winner of “Opptakt”, Talent Norway’s top launch programme in fostering young conductors, triumphing in the auditions with the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra in June 2019. Always fascinated by the orchestral repertoire and the nearly unlimited possibilities of an orchestra, he was also drawn to the psychological part and complexity of a conductor’s work. He is currently working on his Masters in conducting in Oslo with Ole Kristian Ruud, having originally studied piano and music theory in Freiburg and Oslo as well as conducting in Frankfurt.
Earlier this year Daniel conducted the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in a digital concert as a part of the Bergen Festival, which was also broadcast on Norwegian Television. In October he makes his debut with the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra in a live-streamed concert conducting works by Valen and Beethoven — further details will follow in due course. Orchestras Daniel will work with during the next seasons include the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lithuanian National Philharmonic.
