Philipp von Steinaecker

Philipp von Steinaecker was the first recipient of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s Melgaard Young Conductor position. Born in Hamburg, he originally trained as a cellist with, among others, Harvey Shapiro at the Juilliard School in New York, later studying conducting with Mark Stringer at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna.

Following his tenure with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Philipp von Steinaecker assisted Sir John Eliot Gardiner as well as Claudio Abbado, who invited him to share the stage with him at the helm of his Orchestra Mozart. 

Recent highlights include Bach’s St John Passion with his own Musica Saeculorum at the Easter Festival in Aix-en-Provence as well as appearances with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, New Japan Philharmonic, Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra, Residentie Orkest Den Hague, Prague Philharmonia and Camerata Salzburg as well as a new production of Mozart’s Zauberflöte at the Teatro Filarmonico di Verona.
