PAUL MANN, conductor

       
       Considered one of the finest conductors of his generation, Paul Mann is an outstanding musician noted for his extensive repertoire, great musicality and versatility.
He was chief conductor of the Odense Symphony Orchestra in Denmark until 2008, where he achieved considerable critical and audience success, particularly in the symphonies of Elgar, Schumann, Shostakovich, Beethoven and Mahler.
He is a regular guest-conductor with many major orchestras throughout Europe, the US, Australia, and the Far East. Orchestras with which he has recently worked include the Bergen Philharmonic, Lahti Symphony, Luxembourg Philharmonic, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, St Petersburg Philharmonic, RAI Torino, Orchestra dell'Arena di Verona, Flemish Radio, Copenhagen Philharmonic, Orchestre de Bretagne; the BBC Orchestras, City of Birmingham Symphony, Hallé, Royal Scottish National, Britten Sinfonia; Orquesta Ciudad de Barcelona, Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla, Orquesta Sinfónica de Bilbao, among others. In the US, Mr. Mann is a regular guest conductor with New York City Ballet, both at their Lincoln Center home, and on tour. He has also conducted the orchestras of Colorado, New Mexico, and Oregon. His debut with the Queensland Orchestra in 2002 resulted in regular re-invitations to Australia, with the Tasmanian Symphony, Melbourne Symphony, West Australian Symphony, and Adelaide Symphony orchestras, as well as the Auckland Philharmonia in New Zealand, and the Malaysian Philharmonic.
He was first prizewinner in the 1998 Donatella Flick Conducting Competition, and was appointed assistant conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. He made his LSO debut shortly afterwards, and subsequently collaborated regularly with the orchestra both in the concert hall and recording studio. Special projects with the LSO included the Duke Ellington Centenary Concert at the Barbican Hall with Wynton Marsalis which was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, and a famous collaboration with legendary rock group Deep Purple in two widely acclaimed performances of Jon Lord's Concerto for Group and Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall, the live DVD and CDs of which have become international bestsellers.
Mr. Mann has made numerous recordings for such labels as Decca, Warner Classics, EMI, Bridge and Da Capo with orchestras including the London Symphony, the English Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony and Odense Symphony.
