Gert Frischmuth (Choral Conductor)

Born: 1932 - Thuringia, Germany

The German choral conductor, Gert Frischmuth, studied, after graduating from the high school, at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena Schulmusik. After the diploma for musician, followed from 1959 12-year activity as a music teacher, who was connected with the building and directing of choirs of most various kinds from the outset. Today he still leads the Erfurter Männerchor, which recorded in 1996 its first CD. The appointment was followed by an auxiliary study in the subject choir directing with Professor Günther Fredrich at the Hochschule für Musik "Franz Liszt" Weimar, which has become by now a true home place of choir singing. The consistent building of the chamber choir on one side and the development of successful methodology of choir directing on the other, led to ideal training conditions for the beginning school musicians and choir and/or orchestra conductors.

In 1979 Gert Frischmuth was appointed as the tidy professor for choir directing. Graduates of his class manage today the best choirs of Germany. The multiplicity of the international concert and competition successes led to numerous appearances as a guest conductor with professional choirs in his homeland and abroad. As a consequence he was appointed in 1988 the principal conductor of the Leipziger Rundfunkchores (today: Chor des Mitteldeutschen Rundfunks), which he managed until 1997. Gert Frischmuth is member of international competition juries and in demand leader of conductor courses and choir directing.
