Mihhail Gerts will make his debut conducting the Gewnadhausorchester Leipzig on 29 and 30 September. The Estonian conductor, hailed as “a name to remember” (ResMusica) for his “astonishing precision, highly expressive gestures and warmth” (RPonline), jumps in last minute to conduct Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue in C minor KV 546 (version for string orchestra), Elgar’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in E minor, Op. 85 (with Valentino Worlitzsch as soloist) and Max Reger’s Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Mozart, Op. 132. Gerts and the Orchestra will perform Max Reger’s work in a concert for schools the morning of the 29th.

Mihhail Gerts is earning acclaim following recent successful debuts with the Orchestre Nazionale delĺ Accademia di Santa Cecilia, BBC Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, with the acclaimed baritone Matthias Goerne as soloist. He is also the artistic director of the TubIN Festival, initiated to promote the outstanding symphonic music of the Estonian composer Eduard Tubin. 

Gerts looks forward to returning to many of these orchestras in the 2022/23 season, and to making highly anticipated Australian debut with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in addition to European debuts with the Oslo Philharmonic, RTV Slovenian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and Staatskapelle Dresden. He will also return to the National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin and to the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra.
