In 1979, Christian Kluttig became principal conductor
of the world reknown Handel Festival Orchestra Halle. His success with the
orchestra lead promptly to guest performances in nearly all the East-European
countries, as well as in Finland, West Germany, and France, including numerous
recordings for both radio and records. In 1984, the Handel prize winner was
appointed general music director.
In the 1989/90 season, Mr Kluttig was invited by the
Koblenz City Opera to conduct their production of Handel’s opera “Giulio
Cesare”. The exceptional success of this production lead to the spontaneous
invitation to return the following season (1990/91) for the romantic opera “Der
Freischütz”. His success was so well received by not only the public, but also
the Rhein Philharmonic Orchestra, that he asked to accept the double post as
general music director of both the opera and symphony orchestra in Koblenz. Mr
Kluttig began this dual-position in the 1991/92 season.
In the 1998/99 season, he became Professor for
Conducting at the Music Conservatory “Carl Maria von Weber” in Dresden, and 2000
at the HMT in Leipzig.
Outstanding highlights in Christian Kluttig’s activities as concert-conductor include the compositions of Mozart, Brahms, Mahler (all symphonies), and the classics of the 20th century. Just as at ease with contemporary music, Mr Kluttig has conducted the world-premieres of many contemporary works.
