Philipp Ahmann, Conductor

Philipp Ahmann was born in 1974 and studied conducting with Marcus Creed at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne. He began working with radio choirs in 2005, and has since then worked as a guest conductor with the SWR Vocal Ensemble Stuttgart, the WDR Radio Choir Cologne and the Berlin Radio Choir. In 2008 Philipp Ahmann was appointed Chief Conductor of the North German Radio Choir in Hamburg. Under his direction the chorus in 2009 launched its own series of subscription concerts which has met with an enthusiastic response from audiences and critics alike and has now successfully established itself within Hamburg’s music scene.

Since 2010 Philipp Ahmann has collaborated closely with the MDR LEIPZIG RADIO CHOIR. In 2013 the ensemble appointed him Principal Guest Conductor for a period of three years and he continues to work with the choir on a regular basis.

Philipp Ahmann has been acclaimed not only for exploring a cappella repertoire from every musical period but also for his interpretation of oratorio works ranging from Baroque to contemporary. He has worked with early music orchestras such as Bell’arte Salzburg, B’Rock, Concerto con Anima, Concerto Köln, Le Concert Lorrain and the Elbipolis Baroque Orchestra Hamburg, ensembles specialising in contemporary music including the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet and Ensemble Resonanz as well as with the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne, the MDR LEIPZIG RADIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA and the NDR Radiophilharmonie. Concerts with the NDR Bigband and NDR Brass as well as his involvement with the NDR sing-along project “SINGING!” with over 600 singers bear witness to his versatility.

A guest at renowned festivals such as Rheingau Music Festival, Schleswig Holstein Music Festival, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival and the International Handel Festival Göttingen, Philipp Ahmann has released CDs with the NDR Choir and the MDR LEIPZIG RADIO CHOIR which have been received with critical acclaim.
