BIOGRAPHY

ENGLISH BIOGRAPHY

Hailed by the Berliner Morgenpost as “a poised orchestral leader”, the young conductor Eugene Tzigane is often praised for his elegant conducting style, natural musical authority and “almost fanatical precision” (Neue Volksblatt). His reputation as a versatile force on the podium is witnessed by the high level of return engagements throughout Europe, North America and the Far East.

He achieved early recognition winning Second Prize at the 2008 Solti Competition leading to invitations from the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Frankfurt Radio Symphony and Nordwestdeutsche (NWD) Philharmonie. He was immediately appointed Principal Conductor of the NWD Philharmonie, a position which he held until 2014.

Tzigane enjoys many ongoing relationships with ensembles worldwide including with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Lahti Symphony, Tampere Philharmonic and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestras. Other recent European engagements have taken him to the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, Copenhagen Philharmonic, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Norrköping Symphony, RTE National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, BBC Scottish Symphony and Basel Symphony Orchestra.

Since his US debut with the Indianapolis Symphony Tzigane has conducted the symphony orchestras of Oregon, New Jersey, Fort Worth, North Carolina, Columbus and the Rochester Philharmonic. At his Chicago debut conducting the Grant Park Festival Orchestra he was praised by the Chicago Tribune for “bringing freshness and energy”. He conducts regularly in Japan including with the Yomiuri Nippon and Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestras and has been to Australia with the Adelaide Symphony and West Australian Symphony Orchestras.

With a natural flair for working with singers, Tzigane made his Bayerische Staatsoper debut conducting a new production of Così fan tutte and more recently took the helm of Die Zauberflöte at Hamburgische Staatsoper, Die Fledermaus at Frankfurt Oper and Carmen at Royal Swedish Opera. He returns to Stockholm in spring 2018 to conduct nine performances of Giordano Fedora.

Tzigane begins the 17/18 season making his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in an all-Beethoven programme. Other orchestral highlights include return visits to the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Umea, Gavle and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestras and for concerts with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia, Orchestre National d’ile de France and Swedish Chamber Orchestra.

Eugene Tzigane began his conducting studies at Julliard with James DePreist where he earned the Bruno Walter Memorial Scholarship. He completed his studies under Jorma Panula at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm where he was awarded the Franz Berwald Memorial Scholarship and attended masterclasses with Daniel Harding, Michael Tilson-Thomas and Jukka-Pekka Saraste. His other accolades include First Prize at the 2007 Fitelberg Competition and Second Prize at the 2007 Matacic Competition.


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.
