Biography

Webster opened the 2022/23 season making his debut conducting the Ulster Orchestra in a BBC Radio 3 concert, featuring Anna Clyne’s ‘Within Her Arms’, Elgar’s Cello Concerto with Gabriel Schwabe, and Schumann’s Symphony No. 2. He was immediately re-invited by the orchestra to takeover two further BBC programmes later that month, including Bartók’s ‘Dance Suite’, Hindemith’s ‘Mathis der Maler’, Mozart’s Ballet Music from ‘Idomeneo’, and Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with María Dueñas.

In the autumn, Webster returns to Glyndebourne as assistant conductor for the Tour production of Mozart’s ‘Le nozze di Figaro’. He will also make his Austrian debut with the Bruckner Orchestra Linz in December. Following his successful debut with the Nagoya Philharmonic in an Elgar, Mozart, and Vaughan Williams programme last season, Webster returns to Japan to debut with the Osaka Philharmonic in works by Brahms, Chopin, and Tchaikovsky in May 2023 and Tokyo Symphony Orchestra next season.
