Born in Vienna, Gottfried Rabl studied piano and holds degrees in French horn, conducting and vocal coaching from the Vienna University of Music. He was awarded a conducting fellowship in Helsinki and led his own highly successful ensemble for avantgarde music, Theatre of Silence, for several years, appearing as conductor, pianist and composer. He later started a close collaboration with Leonard Bernstein in Vienna, Milan and the United States, serving as musical assistant and editor of Bernstein’s last opera A Quiet Place. He subsequently pursued, for several years, post-graduate studies at the Indiana University School of Music in the United States, where he became conductor of the local symphony orchestra. In Vienna Gottfried Rabl is a frequent conductor of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and works regularly with the renowned contemporary music ensemble die reihe. Internationally he has worked with a number of orchestras and recorded for BMG-Ariola and the German labels Orfeo and cpo as well as Sony Classical, with acclaimed recordings including all nine symphonies by Egon Wellesz for cpo. The first two CDs received enthusiastic reviews in Europe as well as in the United States and were nominated for a GRAMMY® Award and, at MIDEM, for the best recording of a twentieth-century composition.
