Roy Goodman

Born in 1951, Roy Goodman began his musical education as a chorister at King’s College, Cambridge where he was the treble soloist in a famous recording of Allegri’s Miserere.

He embarked on his conducting career in 1974 with a repertoire that included the symphonies of Shostakovich and Sibelius. In 1975 he formed the Brandenburg Consort and became absorbed in the practice of historical performance. In 1981, after ten years as a teacher and violinist, Roy Goodman began directing the Hanover Band. He was principal conductor from 1986 to 1994 and gained an international reputation for his revelatory performances of 18th- and 19th-century music.

In 1989 he became music director of the European Union Baroque Orchestra.

An invitation to conduct the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in 1985 was the catalyst for Roy Goodman’s flourishing career as an international conductor. Within a few years Goodman, with the Hanover Band, had recorded on CD the first ever performances on historic instruments of the complete symphonies by Beethoven, Cherubini, Schubert, Schumann and Weber, as well as 60 symphonies by Haydn.
