Gerhard Markson

“Markson gets his Irish orchestra to deliver a rousing performance.” – on Gerhard Markson’s version of Ein Heldenleben for Naxos 8.554417.

Although increasingly active in Ireland, Gerhard Markson’s most constant home is Freiburg, located in Germany’s Black Forest, and the conductor’s great love of mountain hiking is no doubt encouraged by the city’s towering monument, the Schlossburg mountain.

He considers the sport his main form of leisure pursuit, though he also describes himself as a literary person (he in fact studied literature as well as music for many years), with additional interests in history and photography. He says that he and his family—wife, son and two daughters—always take their holidays “in the mountains” of any given region.

In one interview, Markson compared the progress of his career to “changes in altitude”: piano at seven, organ at twelve, first desires to be a conductor at fourteen, studies in music from eighteen, the beginnings of a stage career at twenty-six and so on.
