Jakub Hrůša Wins 2023 Bavarian Culture Prize

Hrůša will be honored at a November 16 ceremony in Munich, alongside a writer and two artists


Conductor Jakub Hrůša, who is presently the Chief Conductor of the Bamberger Symphoniker, was recently named as one of the winners of the Bavarian Culture Prize. The award is primarily given to celebrate the work of the recipient but also carries a cash prize of €5,000.

Hrůša will be honored at a ceremony in Munich on November 16, alongside the other laureates: writer Rita Falk and the artists and patrons Michaela and Bruno Wank.

The Bavarian Culture Prize has been running since 1959 and is awarded by the German energy company Bayernwerk in close cooperation with the Bavarian Ministry of Art. Each year, five winners in the art category are selected by an expert jury — and university students, especially doctoral candidates, will also be honored.

As well as having held his position in Bamberg since 2016, Jakub Hrůša is also currently the Principal Guest Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic and Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.

At the conclusion of the 2023/24 season, Hrůša will succeed Antonio Pappano as the Music Director at the Royal Opera House. Pappano has been in the role for 22 years.
