“A new conductor’s name to be remembered.” – written by DAS ORCHESTER about a series of concerts with the Neue Philharmonie Westfalen conducted by the Berlin-based Australian Tobias Foskett.

Tobias Foskett’s repertoire and experience equally cover the areas of symphony concerts and opera. His engagements include the Munich Symphony Orchestra, the Bremen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra, the Gewandhaus Orchestra at the Leipzig Opera, the children’s concert series of the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, as well as concerts in the US and Australia.
