BIOGRAPHY:

Born in 1941, Friedrich Goldmann studied with Stockhausen in Darmstadt in 1959 and went on to spearhead the young new music avant-garde of East Germany. Achieving wide-spread recognition in Western Europe since the late 1970s with his fiercely modernist, highly integrative and multilayered aesthetics, his oeuvre comprises more than 200 works. As a conductor he has premiered major works by Lachenmann, Henze, Rihm, Hosokawa and others
with orchestras and ensembles such as Berliner Philharmoniker, Staatskapelle Berlin and longtime collaborators Ensemble Modern. He also conducted the French & German premieres of Luigi Nono's seminal 'Prometeo' and recorded Stockhausen's 'Gruppen' for Deutsche Grammophon. As a professor at Berlin’s Universität der Künste, he is considered one of the most influential teachers of his generation. Among his students were Helmut Oehring, Enno Poppe, Steffen Schleiermacher and Jakob Ullmann.

After a period in the 1990s in which he withdrew from conducting due to health reasons, Goldmann's music has experienced a renaissance since 2009, with conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Heinz Holliger, Ilan Volkov, Peter Rundel and Matthias Pintscher performing his orchestral works. His opera
'R.Hot bzw. Die Hitze' has seen three restagings since 2010. Since 2014 his entire orchestral and chamber oeuvre has been premiered in concert and is heard in concerts and at competitions in Europe, North and South America, Russia, East and South East Asia, Australia and South Africa.
