Friedrich Haider, an Austrian conductor with Italian ancestry, was trained at the Vienna Music Academy. At the age of 29 he was appointed music director of the Strasbourg Opéra National du Rhin. With a repertoire of some sixty operas he has appeared at leading European opera houses, including Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Dresden, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Venice. In 2006 he made his début at the New York Metropolitan Opera with Rigoletto. He has conducted the Czech Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra and Camerata Salzburg, among others. From 2004 to 2010 he was principal conductor of the Oviedo Filarmonía and from 2012 to 2016 music director of the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava. Friedrich Haider is an ardent champion of the music of Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari. He has programmed and recorded Il segreto di Susanna and made the first-ever recording of the composer’s complete orchestral works, including the overtures and intermezzi from the operas, as well as the complete a cappella choral works and the Geistliches Mysterium ‘Talitha Kumi’.
