Christoph Ehrenfellner connects the arts of conducting, composing and performing in unique style, looking back onto tradition run by Mahler, Stokowski, Britten and Bernstein. Writing new operas for Mainfranken Theater Würzburg and Theater Nordhausen 2021 is as compelling as recording a complete cycle of Beethoven Violin Sonatas (Tokyo 2019). Conducting Ehrenfellner ‘Fantaisie Pathétique’ @ Mexico City Phil (2017) thrills as much as driving Vienna Jeunesse Orchestra through Kalevi Ahos ‘Sieidi’ – Martin Grubinger on the drums (2020)!
In cooperation with the sensational Krasnojarsk Chamber Orchestra and Loh-Orchester Sondershausen Christoph Ehrenfellner created various arrangements for violin&orchestra on Schubert, Beethoven and original Ehrenfellner-compositions, which he performs.
