Christoph-Mathias Mueller has been principal conductor of the Göttinger Sinfonie Orchester since 2005. Under his direction, the orchestra has emerged as an outstanding ensemble in Germany, reputed equally for its broad repertoire and for its stylistic diversity. In 2017, this successful conductor-orchestra collaboration was honoured—for the second time—with an ECHO Klassik award.
Christoph-Mathias Mueller, born in Peru in 1967, made his international breakthrough in 2000, when he won the conducting competition in Cadaqués, Spain. In 2001, Claudio Abbado appointed him assistant conductor to the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, subsequently also engaging him as his ‘right hand’ at the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. As a guest conductor, Christoph-Mathias Mueller is closely associated with the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre.
He makes regular guest appearances with internationally renowned ensembles including the Russian National Orchestra, the Orchestre National de Lyon, the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, and the HR-Sinfonieorchester Frankfurt.
