Marek Janowski (b1939)

Marek Janowski, whose father was Polish, left Poland while still young with his German mother and was brought up in Wuppertal. He studied mathematics and music in Cologne, including conducting with Wolfgang Sawallisch, and was also a conducting student at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena. Having started his professional musical career in 1961 as a répétiteur at Aachen, he moved on after a year to Cologne where he remained for two years; here in addition to coaching he was given the opportunity to conduct occasionally, without rehearsal. Janowski moved to Düsseldorf as second conductor in 1964, and thence back to Cologne as first conductor in 1966, when István Kertész was chief conductor. He made his English debut conducting Hans Werner Henze’s opera Der junge Lord as part of the Cologne Opera’s visit to London in 1969, when it performed at Sadler’s Wells Theatre. As first conductor at Hamburg from 1969 to 1973 during the last years of Rolf Liebermann’s period as intendant, Janowski scored a notable success with his conducting on record in 1970 of the Hamburg company in Penderecki’s powerful opera Die Teufel von Loudun. Janowski was appointed to his first post as chief conductor in 1973, when he became general music director at Freiburg. After two seasons he moved on to a similar position at Dortmund, remaining there until 1979 and also conducting as a guest in the first-rank German opera houses of Berlin, Munich
