Bernhard Melbye Voss is our Main Conductor since 2018.

With which composer would you like to go for a coffee?/ Which composer would you have liked to go for a coffee with?


Clara Schumann. Would be interesting to meet a composer, who definitely had the talent to become a really great composer, but due to the society of that time didn't really have the opportunity to follow up on the promising way she started.





Where would you most like to perform?


It doesn't mean so much to me where. As long as the acoustic is good and the audience is there. I prefer to focus on the music.





With whom would you ideally like to collaborate?


Andras Schiff.







What was your finest moment on stage?


It must have been my graduation concert with RSO in Musikverein! The orchestra was amazing and the hall is just very special. When you turn around to the audience it feels huge, but when you face the orchestra, everything seems so small and intimate that you can only feel very well!





Which work would you like to conduct?


Schumann's "Faust Szenen".






Can music change the world?


I hope so! It can change people and people can change the world, but the music itself will probably never get that recognition of changing anything.
