"A new conductor's name to be remembered." – written by DAS ORCHESTER 2011 about a series of concerts with the Neue Philharmonie Westfalen conducted by the Berlin-based Australian Tobias Foskett. He took on the engagement on short notice and with sweeping drive and self-assuredness impressed the audience as well as the critics.
Tobias Foskett's repertoire and experience equally cover the areas of symphony concerts and opera. His engagements include the Munich Symphony 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.
Tobias Foskett began his career as assistant conductor at Opera Australia Sydney. Since 2003 he has been living in Europe where, at first, he assisted Simone Young with some of the most important orchestras and opera houses in Germany and Austria.
