ABOUT

Brazilian conductor Eduardo Strausser has been praised for his powerful, dynamic style and charisma. Leading performances of Tosca, Die Zauberflote, Hänsel und Gretel and Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Hannover Staatsoper forms the backbone of the first half of the 2019/20 season, as well as leading concerts with the orchestra. He also conducts Le vin herbé at Theater Basel in spring 2020. Alongside his operatic work he will make his U.S. debut with Detroit Symphony Orchestra, return to Australian National Academy of Music and Queensland Symphony Orchestra, and give performances with Bamberger Symphoniker and Oulu Symphony. 

 

Previous symphonic performances include dates with Antwerp Symphony, Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Tampere Philharmonic, and Oslo Philharmonic as well as the Staatstheater Darmstadt and Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne. Last season also saw returns to the Deutsche Sinfonie-Orchester Berlin and Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. 

Excelling on the concert podium and in the orchestra pit, Eduardo has conducted several operas including; Die Zauberflöte with the Meininger Hofkapelle, La bohème (Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro and Teatro Verdi di Padova) and Tosca (Theater Magdeburg). During his last season as Resident Conductor in Teatro São Paulo (2014/16), he led performances of Elektra and Carlos Gomes´ Fosca, as well as performances of The Nutcracker with the Balé da Cidade de São Paulo, and a Stefano Poda production of Mahler Symphony No.1.

Besides his studies at the Zurich University of Arts, Eduardo has worked with the visionary composer Karlheinz Stockhausen as part of a two-month course in Kürten, Germany. He has also participated in masterclasses with Bernard Haitink and David Zinman in Switzerland and with Kurt Masur in New York. In 2008 Eduardo was selected to take part in the prestigious International Forum for Conductors at the Ferienkurse für Neue Musik in Darmstadt, Germany, where he had the chance to work closely with composers György Kurtág and Brian Ferneyhough.

Eduardo has worked with a number of top soloists, including Isabelle Faust, Richard Galliano, Simon Osborne, Barnabas Kelemen and Sergei Krylov among others.

 

A multi-linguist, Eduardo can speak eight languages fluently including; German, Italian, French, Spanish and Hebrew.

2019/20 season only.

“Maestro Strausser is unquestionably one of the new faces in the music world, and part of its exciting future.” 

 

Vecernji list - Zagreb, June 2017

___________________________________
“Strausser had the moment of his life, the best Jupiter Sinfonie in a long time!” ****

Clemens Goldberg, Kultureradio, November 2017

___________________________________“Eduardo Strausser, a revelation of the season.”

Folha de S. Paulo, December 2016

___________________________________“Eduardo Strausser holds a light direction, he’s sensible in choosing the timing and dynamics, attentive to the contrast of colors, very expressive. But, most importantly, the direction has a fast paced narrative rhythm and is pervaded by theatricality beauty, able to return to listening all the soft delicacy of Puccini’s score, without never incurring in languorousness.”

Teatro.it, February 2017

___________________________________“The conductor Eduardo Strausser strikes, and the first three chords, solemn, threatening, sound different. Livelier, faster, or more intense. Immediately, everything … electrifies, pardon the pun. (…) Strausser conducts with precision, spirit, energy. The Orquestra Sinfônica Municipal responds magnificently.”

Concerto.com, October 2016

___________________________________

“A superb Strausser at Teatro la Fenice in Venice” — ​“The perfection of the Orchestra Filarmonica della Fenice shone in all its grace thanks to young conductor Eduardo Strausser … a real force of nature. His conducting is imbued with charisma, stage presence, and good chemistry with the orchestra …”

Daily Revolution, March 2016

___________________________________
“On the podium, the young Brazilian conductor Eduardo Strausser [conducting the Orchestra Filarmonica della Fenice] proves himself a sensitive musician … Strausser has a beautiful gesture that translates into a very organic performance…”

Operaclick, March 2016

___________________________________“Young Eduardo Strausser, the theater’s resident conductor drew out playing that displayed the full spectrum of the Wagnerian instrumental palette, with an expressionist zest spurred on by an all-pervading sense of angst.”

Opera Magazine, January 2016

 

 

___________________________________“Everything changed on the second evening [this time under conductor Eduardo Strausser]. The orchestra seemed more confident, and Eduardo Strausser, lyrical and narrative, adjusting the intensity so as to bring out the voices, immediately captured the audience’s attention.”

Revista Concerto, October 2015

 

 

___________________________________

”Eduardo Strausser brings youthful fire to the work (G. Verdi’s Otello) alongside vigilant attention to accuracy.”

Opera Magazine, July 2015

 

 

___________________________________

”… the conductor expresses profound and passionate perception [of the opera Eugene Onegin], presenting the inner turmoil of the protagonists and the passions at stake.”

Opera Actual Magazine, July 2015
