Lomonaco Artists signs conductor Joshua Gersen
Joshua recently concluded his tenure as the Assistant Conductor of the New York Philharmonic, where he most notably made his subscription debut at just a few hours’ notice, filling in for an indisposed Semyon Bychkov. “Impassioned and incisive,” wrote The New York Times, “the performance earned a standing ovation and prolonged applause from his colleagues in the orchestra.”
A respected composer as well as conductor, in addition to his love of contemporary music, he remains passionate about the core classical repertoire, in particular the German and Russian masters, as well as the classic American composers, including Copland, Gershwin, Barber and Bernstein.
Joshua has enjoyed a very successful relationship with the New World Symphony and made his conducting debut with the San Francisco Symphony in the autumn of 2013 and has since been invited back numerous times to conduct a variety of concerts. His next concert with live audience will be 21st May with the North Carolina Symphony in a programme of Mozart and Beethoven.
