Antony
Hermus

Conductor

Antony Hermus studied conducting with Jac van Steen and Georg Fritzsch at the Tilburg Conservatory. Hermus is principal guest conductor of the North Netherlands Orchestra, artistic advisor of the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands and was recently appointment principal guest conductor of Opera North after his acclaimed debut with Puccini’s Tosca.

Having firmly established his symphonic career in his native Holland – where he regularly conducts the major orchestras – Hermus has in recent seasons been increasingly sought-after elsewhere, appearing with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bamberg Symphony, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.

He has a wide repertoire which also encompasses many living composers, and a particularly close working relationship with composer Unsuk Chin, whose Piano Concerto he recently performed with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. He has conducted extensively in opera houses across Europe, notably in Stuttgart, Paris, Gothenburg, at the Komische Oper Berlin and the Dutch Touring Opera. He was music director in Dessau from 2009, ending his tenure in 2015 with his first Wagner Ring Cycle and promotion to honorary conductor.

Antony Hermus made his debut with the Concertgebouworkest in October 2014, when he conducted a Family concert with Prokofiev’s Cinderella.
