Werner Andreas Albert (b1935)

Internationally acclaimed conductor Werner Andreas Albert has enjoyed a long and distinguished career in his native Germany, and for more than 25 years has been much beloved in Australasia. He was chief conductor of the ABC for 8 years and has conducted all 6 Symphony Australia orchestras. His extensive reputation is built on an extraordinary collection of recorded works, mastery of the German Romantic repertoire, and a finely developed skill to inspire and draw out the best in orchestras he conducts.

As a conductor, Werner has held a number of titled positions, including Chief Conductor of the Queensland Symphony, the North West German Philharmonic, the Gulbenkian Orchestra (Lisbon) and the Nuremberg Symphony. He has enjoyed great success conducting tours to the United States, South America, the USSR, China, and most European countries. In recent years he has conducted in Beijing, and at Triphony Hall and Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall in Japan with the New Japan Philharmonic the Tokyo City Symphony Orchestra.

He became famous for recording all of the vast standard repertoire for German Radio over many years, he began to look further afield for new challenges, and applied himself to championing new composers and discovering riches from the immense storehouse of works that have never been recorded. In the process he gained an exemplary reputation as a connoisseur's conductor and earned the distinction of being the most recorded artist in Germany.
