YOEL GAMZOU JOINS ARSIS ARTIST MANAGEMENT FOR WORLDWIDE REPRESENTATION
We are delighted to announce that the Israeli-American conductor Yoel Gamzou has joined our roster for worldwide general management.
The press have referred to him as a „breathtaking sensation“ (Hamburger Abendblatt), an „unshakeable, radical, uncompromising, possessed genius“ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), and as „outrageously talented“ (Opernwelt).
Born to an artistic family, Yoel Gamzou grew up in New York, London and Tel Aviv and started playing the cello at the age of four. It was the discovery of Mahler’s music when he was 7 that led him to eventually dedicate himself to conducting when he was 12.
Yoel Gamzou is currently Generalmusikdirektor of the Theater Bremen, a position he began at the outset of the 2017/18 season with a critically acclaimed new production of Shostakovich’s Lady MacBeth of the Mtsensk District. He is also Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the International Mahler Orchestra (IMO), an ensemble he founded in 2006.
