JONAS ALBER has been called an “unparalleled magician of sound”, and has been praised for a maturity that seems unimaginable for such a young conductor. When he was appointed General Music Director of the Staatstheater Braunschweig in 1998, he became the youngest conductor in Germany to hold such a post. Today he is much in demand as a guest conductor with symphony orchestras and opera companies in every part of the globe.

As a symphonic conductor, JONAS ALBER has led many renowned orchestras. In Germany, these have included the Bavarian Radio Symphony, the Cologne WDR Symphony, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Saarbrücken, the Leipzig MDR Symphony, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Hamburg Symphony and the Bochum Symphony. He has also conducted the Tonkünstler Orchestra of Lower Austria in Vienna, the Symphony Orchestra of St. Gallen, the Brussels Philharmonic, the Orchestre National de Belgique, the Residentie Orkest of The Hague, the City of Birmingham Symphony, the Iceland Symphony, the Gran Canaria Philharmonic, the Zagreb Philharmonic, the Armenian Philharmonic, the Cape Philharmonic, and the Auckland Philharmonia.

Recent engagements (2010-2012) have included guest appearances with the BBC Symphony, the Flanders Symphony Orchestra, the Kristiansand Symfoniorkester, the Orchestre National de Lille, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra; he also returned to the Brussels Philharmonic, the Symphony Orchestra of St. Gallen, and the Armenian Philharmonic.
