BIOGRAPHY

ENGLISH BIOGRAPHY

Hailed by the Berliner Morgenpost as “a poised orchestral leader” the young conductor Eugene Tzigane is gaining a reputation for his "elegant aura, gesture-rich, enhanced conducting technique, and his almost fanatical precision” (Neue Volksblatt). With a schedule full of return engagements and debuts around the world, Mr. Tzigane is quickly proving himself to be an energetic and versatile force in the orchestral and operatic scene.

His conducting career ascended rapidly after taking Second Prize at the 2008 Solti Competition, leading to conducting invitations from the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, HR-Sinfonieorchester, Duisburger Philharmoniker, and Nordwestdeutsche (NWD) Philharmonie. This eventually led to his appointment as Principal Conductor of the NWD Philharmonie, a position he held from 2010 to 2014.

Mr. Tzigane enjoys many ongoing relationships with ensembles worldwide. In Europe, they include the Norwegian Radio Symphony, Aarhus Symphony, Tampere Philharmonia, and Sinfonia Lahti among others. His European engagements have taken him to the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Bruckner Orchester Linz, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, and Sinfonieorchester Basel. Highlights of the 2015–16 season include return visits to the Lahti, Aarhus, the Norwegian Radio, the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony and Kyoto Symphony in Japan, as well as debuts with the Copenhagen Philharmonic, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Göttingen Symphony, and the Oulu Sinfonia.

In the US, Mr. Tzigane was praised in his debut at the Grant Park Festival in 2013 by the Chicago Tribune for “bringing freshness and energy to an attractively varied program that found him fully engaged with the musicians, and they with him.” Tzigane has further performed with the symphony orchestras of Oregon, Indianapolis, New Jersey, Fort Worth, North Carolina, Columbus, and the Rochester Philharmonic.

With a natural flair for working with singers, Tzigane made his Bayerische Staatsoper debut in 2009, conducting a new production of Così fan tutte. He recently made his Oper Frankfurt debut, conducting Christof Loy’s acclaimed production of Die Fledermaus. Last season, he conducted Die Zauberflöte at the Hamburgische Staatsoper and makes his Swedish debut in Carmen with the Royal Swedish Opera.


DEUTSCHE BIOGRAPHIE

Von der Berliner Morgenpost als souveräner Orchesterleiter bezeichnet, erlangt der junge Dirigent Eugene Tzigane ein enormes Ansehen für seine elegante Ausstrahlung, Ausdrucksstärke, sehr gute Dirigiertechnik und seine beinahe fanatische Präzision (Neues Volksblatt). Sein Kalender ist mit zahlreichen Wiedereinladungen und weltweiten Debüts gefüllt – Eugene Tzigane entwickelt eine energetische und vielseitige Kraft im sinfonischen Bereich wie auch in der Oper.

Seine Dirigierkarriere entwickelt sich rasant, seitdem er 2009 den zweiten Preis des Solti Wettbewerbs gewann. Es folgten Einladungen zum Deutschen Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, dem hr-Sinfonieorchester, den Duisburger Philharmonikern und der Nordwestdeutschen Philharmonie, dessen Chefdirigent er von 2010 bis 2014 war.

Eugene Tzigane unterhält weltweit fortwährende Beziehungen zu Ensembles und Orchestern. In Europa zählen hierzu auch das Norwegische Radio Symphony Orchester, Aarhus Symphony, Tampere Philharmonia und die Sinonia Lathi. Weitere europäische Engagements brachten ihn zum Netherlands Philharmonie Orchestra, Bruckner Orchester Linz, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland und dem Sinfonieorchester Basel. Highlights der Saison 2015/2016 sind Wiedereinladungen nach Lahti, Aarhus, dem Norwegischen Radio, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony und dem Kyoto Symphony in Japan, ebenso wie Debüts bei den Copenhagen Philharmonics, dem Helsingborg Symphony Orchester, dem Göttinger Symphonie Orchester und Oulu Sinfonia.

In den USA wurde Eugene Tzigane für sein Debüt beim Grant Park Festival 2013 gefeiert. Die Chicago Tribune schrieb, er bringe eine Frische und eine besondere Energie zu einer attraktiv-abwechslungsreichen Programmgestaltung; er zeige eine enge Verbundenheit mit den Musikern. Zudem dirigierte Tzigane die amerikanischen Symphony-Orchester aus Oregon, Indianapolis, New Jersey, Fort Worth, North Carolina, Columbus und Rochester.

Mit einem besonderen Gefühl für die Zusammenarbeit mit Sängern, debütierte Eugene Tzigane 2009 an der Bayerischen Staatsoper mit einer Neuproduktion von Mozarts Così fan tutte. An der Oper Frankfurt dirigierte er Christof Loys Produktion von Strauss’ Fledermaus. In der letzten Saison war er eingeladen, drei Vorstellungen von Mozarts Zauberflöte an der Hamburgischen Staatsoper zu dirigieren, darüber hinaus debütierte er an der Royal Swedish Opera mit einer Produktion von Bizets Carmen.
