Royal Liverpool Philharmonic's Guest Conductor Extends Contract

Andrew Manze’s contract is extended for an additional two years until the summer of 2023

British conductor and violinist Andrew Manze first conducted the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO) in 2011 and was given the role of Principal Guest Conductor in June 2018.

His time with the orchestra included a collaboration between the RLPO and NDR Radiophilharmonie, where he is Principal Conductor. His recording projects include the award-winning 2017 album collaboration with violinist James Ehnes playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto, released by Onyx Classics.

Previously, Manze was Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra between 2006 to 2014. He was also Principal Guest Conductor of the Norwegian Radio Symphony Orchestra and for four seasons, held the position of Associate Guest Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

"Manze has developed a fantastic relationship with the Orchestra and audiences during this time,” reads the RLPO’s Facebook page. "Highlights of his tenure are the recordings of the complete Vaughan Williams symphonies in 2018/19 and a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem at Liverpool Cathedral in November 2018. We’re looking forward to an exciting two years ahead!"

Manze's concerts with the RLPO for the 2021/22 season will be announced in mid-July. He will also direct the orchestra in the Leeds International Piano Competition finals on September 17 and 18, 2021.
