(b 1969 )

In recent years David Coleman has become in demand as a guest conductor, having received invitations to conduct orchestras such as the Frankfurt Radio Orchestra, Southwest German Radio Orchestra, Bremen Philharmonic, Junge Deutsche Philharmonie, Bavarian State Opera, Berlin State Opera, Philharmonia Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal. He has conducted the first performances of works by Gerald Barry (The Road), Philippe Manoury (Abgrund), Xenakis (Kai) and the first performance of Boulez’s Messages esquisses in a version for violas. David Coleman has been commissioned to write works for the Frankfurt Opera (Herzkammeroper), Ensemble Intercontemporain (Deux), Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal (Ibergang clarinet rhapsody) as well as German regional orchestras. His works have been performed mainly under his direction by Ensemble Modern Frankfurt, Southwest German Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, Youth Orchestra of the Americas (Albéniz Phantasy for Viola and Orchestra with violist Edmundo Ramirez), Frankfurt Radio Orchestra, Oldenburg State Orchestra and Jena Philharmonic. Recently he has written a series of chamber-music pieces for soloists of the Berliner Staatskapelle. In 2012 Coleman was commissioned by Daniel Barenboim to make a new version/orchestration of the third act (London scene) of Alban Berg’s Lulu from the extant sketches. Other commissions (2013) include a new work for soprano and orchestra for Daniel Barenboim and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra as well as chamber-music pieces for the Jerusalem Chamber Music festival.
