Müncher Rundfunkorchester Appoints First Principal Guest Conductor

Austrian conductor Patrick Hahn will assume the role beginning in the 2021/22 season


Hahn debuted with the Müncher Rundfunkorchester in 2019 and will return in the new position on October 10 with the opera "The Emporor of Atlantic" by Viktor Ullmann.

"Even at our first concert together, Space Night 2019, the sparks were flying," Hahn said in a press release. "I’ve had the honour of conducting this tremendously versatile orchestra several times, and I’m immensely looking forward to the upcoming joint projects."

"​The Münchner Rundfunkorchester and its Principal Conductor Ivan Repušić are very happy to have won such an accomplished, creative and exceptional talent for the position of Principal Guest Conductor," said Veronika Weber, Manager of Münchner Rundfunkorchester. "The musicians are very much looking forward to working with Patrick Hahn — and to bringing many exciting programs to life together with him!"


Hahn has previously worked with the Desdener Philharmonie, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundunks, Guïrzenich-Orchestra Köln, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Wiener Symphoniker, Hamburg State Opera, Hungarian State Opera, and Tiroler Festspiele Erl.

In the 2020/21 season, Patrick Hahn will also conduct concerts with the Munich Philharmonic, Tonkünstler Orchestra, and Klangforum Wien. In the winter, he makes his debut with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra followed by his return to the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.
