Thomas Clamor, Conductor

Thomas Clamor is the principal conductor of the Saxon Wind Philharmonic and Artistic Director of the German Wind Academy. He completed his music performance studies at the Nordwestdeutsche Musikakademie/Hochschule für Musik in Detmold. In 1986 he joined the Berlin Philharmonic and Herbert von Karajan as the famed orchestra’s youngest member. At the same time he raised his international profile as a soloist and chamber musician in renowned ensembles. A large number of television and radio productions as well as CD recordings with leading labels testify to his artistry. He collaborated with the world’s greatest conductors and soloists in his two decades as a member of the Berlin Philharmonic. In 1987 he began teaching and working as a visiting professor at German universities (Detmold, Weimar, Berlin) and at the Herbert von Karajan Foundation. Right up until today, Thomas Clamor gives master classes in ensemble and chamber music in many countries, and is a professor (honoris causa) at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. A high point in his teaching work as a conductor is the now legendary “El Sistema” of Venezuela. He helped establish the first Latin American brass academy there as well as founding the “Venezuelan Brass Ensemble” as its foremost group. He has conducted at the most important music festivals in Europe – among others at the Salzburg and Lucerne festivals, in Carnegie Hall, New York, at the BBC Proms in Royal Albert Hall in London, at the Berlin Philharmonic and Konzerthaus Berlin as well as at the Vienna Konzerthaus. He as appeared as a guest conductor in San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, Tokyo, Peking, Rome, Madrid, the capital cities of Scandinavia, and many other music centers. Thomas Clamor is recognized around the world as one of the most successful wind ensemble and chamber music conductors. In 2010 he founded the European Brass Ensemble in Austria. As with many of his projects, there too one of his goals is to carry on cultural exchange at the highest musical level.
