Frank Beermann has distinguished himself internationally as a conductor on stage and through numerous CD recordings. His ever-awake interest in the new, the undiscovered, but also in new interpretations of the core repertoire has earned him numerous prizes and recognition. A major repertoire focus of the conductor are the operas of Richard Wagner. His interpretations of Tristan und Isolde as part of the Minden Wagner Projects as well as »Der Ring des Nibelungen« (2015 to 2019) at the same venue earned the highest praise in the German and international feuilletons. His CD recordings, which represent a broad spectrum both in the core repertoire and with excavations and contemporary works, have received many awards, including the Echo Klassik in 2009 and 2015. For some years now Frank Beermann has been intensively engaged in the symphonic works of Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler, and especially the symphonies of Anton Bruckner. Frank Beermann was GMD of the Chemnitz Theatre and chief conductor of the Robert Schumann Philharmonic from 2007 to summer 2016. Recent national and international engagements have included debuts with the Athens National Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra London, the Staatstheater Stuttgart and the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg. In January 2020 he made his debut with great success at the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse, where he conducted a new production of Wagner's »Parsifal« with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse. A new production of Richard Strauss's »Elektra« brought him back to the same position in June 2021 and became a wonderful reunion with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and again a great success. Past projects in Toulouse were »Rusalka« by Antonín Dvořák and Richard Wagner's »Tristan und Isolde«.
