orpheus chor münchen

Gerd Guglhör

Gerd Guglhör was born in 1952 and studied to become a music teacher at the Academy of Music in Munich from 1973 to 1977. He completed his studies with a master class in choral conducting under Prof. Fritz Schieri. In 1986 he was given a teaching position at the Academy of Music in Munich for ensemble conducting, which he carried out in addition to his main teaching job at the Maximiliumsgymnasium in Munich. In 1991, he was appointed university teacher for choral conducting; since 1993 he has taught ensemble conducting, voice physiology and choral conducting at the Academy for Music and Theater in Munich. He was appointed professor in 2003. He founded the orpheus chor in 1982 and has performed extensively with the group. He also conducts the Bach-Chor and Bach-Orchester of Fürstenfeldbruck, an ensemble which performs all major oratorios at home and abroad. In November 1999, Gerd Guglhör was named artistic director of the Bayerische Singakademie. He is regularly invited to lecture on choral conducting, most recently at the 2004 school music forum

orpheus chor münchen

The orpheus chor münchen e. V. is a chamber choir which developed out of the larger choir of the Akademischen Gesang Verein (AGV) Munich in 1982. Its founder and conductor is Gerd Guglhör. The choir’s goal was originally to ensure stylistically correct interpretations of demanding a-cappella vocal works from various epochs with only few voices to each part. The ensemble’s musical development, above all the expansion of its repertoire to include works for two choirs, made it necessary to increase the size of the choir. Today, it has ca. 55 active singers. In the last ten years, the choir has made a name for itself far beyond the confines of Munich, especially in the area of early music and historic performance practice. Its repertoire includes compositions from many musical epochs and styles. It has premiered works of composers currently living in Munich (incl. Enjott Schneider, Kai Westermann, Heinz Benker, Laurence Traiger) as well as seldom performed works such as 4 to 40-voice works by Girolamo Frescobaldi, Francesco Cavalli, Francisco Guerrero and Thomas Tallis. The choir’s broad spectrum is reflected in its many concerts. Not only does the orpheus chor perform regularly in Munich’s Markus Church, it is a frequent guest in various concert series, including the musica sacra viva and subscription series of various Munich presenters as well as the Benediktbeuern summer concerts and European Festwochen Passau. The choir has also participated in choir festivals at home and abroad and at special themed events such as the Munich Hindemith Festival, the Messiaen Festival, Lasso Festival and the Artists’ Ash Wednesday. In 1994, the ensemble won the Golden Diploma at the international choir competition in Riva; in 2000 it received the Orlando-di-Lasso medal of the Bayerischen Sängerbund for its work. In early 2002, the orpheus chor celebrated its 20th anniversary with a performance of the B Minor Mass in Munich’s Herkulessaal. The high standing of the orpheus chor is also documented by its intensive cooperation with the Bavarian Radio Broadcasting Corporation. Many of its concerts have been recorded in past years by the BR. In addition to new choral music by Poulenc, Copland, Britten, Ligeti, Françaix, Hindemith, Debussy and other, a series on polyphony with works by Josquin, Lasso, Bach and Ligeti was produced. In November 1994, the BR produced a six-part series on J. S. Bach’s St. John Passion with the orpheus chor and the Neue Hofkapelle München on original instruments. The orpheus chor has regularly been invited to record CDs since 1994.
