Dirk Joeres

Born in Bonn, Dirk Joeres studied conducting and piano in Berlin, Cologne and London, and composition in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, the grande dame of 20th Century musical life.
Winning first prize at the International Piano Competition in Vercelli (1972), touring extensively and appearing at international festivals (Festival of Berlin, Prague Spring, etc.) Dirk Joeres initially established a very successful career as a pianist.

In 1987 he was appointed Artistic Director of the West German Sinfonia and in 2000 Associate Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London. He now appears regularly with both orchestras at international festivals (Beethovenfest Bonn, Bratislava, Budapest, Cheltenham, Brucknerfest Linz, London, Schleswig-Holstein, etc.) and tours regularly in Europe and the USA.
His recordings with the Sinfonia and the Royal Philharmonic have received excellent reviews in the international press; Gramophone London awarded their ‘Critic’s Choice’ for one of his Brahms recordings: "superb playing and warm, thoughtful and perceptive performances". On the occasion of his debut in Salzburg the ‘Salzburger Nachrichten’ wrote: "….Joeres belongs to those conductors who know how to make music ‘speak’."

In 2002 Dirk Joeres initiated the highly successful, annual festival "Dreiklang" linking music, literature and philosophy in a novel way. In 2005 this project took place for the first time as part of the ‘Kultursommer’ Rheinland-Pfalz.
Forthcoming concert highlights include another USA Tour with the Sinfonia in November 2006 and a Summer Festival Tour with the Royal Philharmonic.
