A propos de la personne
The Swiss conductor Nicolas Fink has conducted the Rundfunkchor Berlin, the choirs of the MDR and the WDR, the Coro Casa da Musica Porto as well as the Choeur de Radio France, and is also a welcome guest with other radio choirs for the preparation and rehearsal of large-scale works (among others for Sir Simon Rattle, Marek Janowski and Thomas Hengelbrock). In 2014 he was appointed choir director of the newly-founded Schleswig Holstein Festival Choir. He is especially interested in new forms of performance. He conducted the world premiere of Christian Jost’s LOVER in Kraftwerk Berlin with the Rundfunkchor Berlin. In 2015 Nicolas Fink will conduct the same ensemble in the traditional Christmas concert in the Berlin Cathedral, in a scenic realization by the director Jasmina Hadziahmetovic, as well as the highly acclaimed production human requiem in Hong Kong and Brussels. In Bergen he initiated and conducted the Norwegian premiere of Martin’s Le vin herbé with the Edvard Grieg Kor in a visual realization by the photographer Magnus Skrede. His performance of a choreographed version of Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil with the WDR Rundfunkchor was enthusiastically received. Fink completed his studies in choral conducting at the Lucerne School of Music with distinction and also received a performance diploma as a baritone. Further studies led him to master classes around the world, including a conducting fellowship at the Tanglewood Music Center in 2006.
