Alexander Janiczek (conductor)

Alexander Janiczek, highly sought after as a director, soloist, guest leader and chamber musician, was born in Salzburg and studied with Helmuth Zehetmair at the Salzburg Mozarteum and with Max Rostal, Nathan Milstein, Ruggiero Ricci and Dorothy Delay. He developed a close association with Sándor Végh and the Camerata Salzburg, which he led and directed for many years.

Alexander is an Associate Artist with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. He has led the Orchestra on tours throughout Scotland, Europe and the USA and he continues to be invited back as a director and soloist. He has also directed the SCO in the highly acclaimed series of Mozart Serenades for Linn.

As a Guest Director he records with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, directing them in a recording of Stravinsky’s Apollon musagète and Pulcinella Suite, which was released on Linn. He continues to direct Camerata Salzburg and also appears with Camerata Bern, Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali of Milan, the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. Alexander explores 19th-century performance practice, appearing with Robert Levin and David Watkin, Sir Roger Norrington and with the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées under Philippe Herreweghe and La Chambre Philharmonique with Emmanuel Krivine.

As a chamber musician, he has also appeared with Joshua Bell, Thomas Adès, Christian Zacharias, Mitsuko Uchida, Denes Varjon and Richard Goode. Alexander performs with the Hebrides Ensemble on their recording of Messiaen Chamber Works for Linn. Llŷr Williams is now a regular duo partner of Alexander’s and together they have performed complete Beethoven cycles in Germany and the UK and made their London Wigmore Hall debut in 2011.

Much in demand at festivals across Europe, Alexander has appeared at Festival de Saintes, Salzburger Festspiele and the Edinburgh International Festival. Alexander has also formed, through close musical partnership with artists who perform with a similar musical aesthetic, his own chamber ensemble, Camerata Janiczek. In 2011, the ensemble made its debut in Germany with a Mozart quintet cycle on period instruments. Alexander also works with young students in masterclasses and directing youth orchestras, and he teaches at London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

Alexander Janiczek plays the ‘Baron Oppenheim’ Stradivarius from 1716, which is on loan to him from the National Bank of Austria.
