Peter Guth (Conductor)

The incomparable way of sweeping musicians and audiences along and to conduct in the tradition of Johann Strauss also playing the violin, has made him internationally known.

He conveys the joy of music wherever he appears. Repeatedly invited as a guest conductor and sought after specialist for Viennese music by more than hundred renowned symphony orchestras and important festivals, he has made an exceptional career in the big musical centres of the world.

Concert series and TV-Galas associate him in frequent cooperation with many famous top-orchestras, like the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London, the NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo, the San Francisco Symphony, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, the English Chamber Orchestra, or the Moscow Virtuosi.

In his considerable number of recordings, the first CD-presentation with music by the Danish “Strauss of the North” Hans Christian Lumbye won the British Music Retailers Award and his recordings with the RSO Vienna were rated as the best of the Marco Polo-Strauss Edition.

In 1978 he founded his Strauss Festival Orchestra Vienna and was able to establish it with worldwide tours, CD- and DVD-recordings as international top ensemble for the authentic interpretation of Viennese music. With his colleagues he gets enthusiastic acclaim also from audiences in Asia (Japan, PR China, Taiwan and South-Korea), and in the past years with concert-tours in Russia and Eastern Europe.

He has accompanied many prominent vocal-soloists, was music director of the first Vienna Operetta Festival in Japan and conducted new operetta-productions at international opera houses. Several times he directed New Year’s Concerts in the Tokyo Suntory Hall and in the New York Lincoln Center for the US-Canadian company “Salute to Vienna” who also presented Peter Guth as artistic director for their TV-Operetta-Galas in Vienna, in 1999 with Gregory Peck as host and in 2013 with Maximilian Schell and Frederica von Stade.

In Russia he appears regularly with leading orchestras. In Moscow in the Grand Hall of the Conservatorium, in Tchaikovsky-Hall, in the Dom Musiki, or for the opening of the Vienna Days. In Saint Petersburg he performed with the Academic Symphony Orchestra of the Saint Petersburg Philharmonia and in the summer festival “The Grand Waltz” of the Hermitage Museum. In 2007 he was appointed as first guest conductor at the Saint Petersburg State Theatre of Musical Comedy, where he conducts several operettas, as well as annual galas with international stars. He also has a regular cooperation with the world known “Moscow Virtuosi” of Vladimir Spivakov.

After his education at the Vienna Academy of Music, Peter Guth studied three years with David Oistrakh at the Moscow Conservatory and was internationally successful as a soloist and with the Vienna Trio (1st prize at the ARD-Competition in Munich). Educational work, publications on modern violin methodology, an active concern for new music, as well as his earlier position as first concertmaster of the RSO Vienna give a comprehensive picture of this versatile, well known Austrian artist. In 2006 he was awarded the City of Vienna’s Golden Sign of Merit.
