"What was impressive was how efficiently and confidently Hasan led the orchestra, showing remarkable maturity and insight..."
- Stuttgarter Nachrichten
(SWR Symphonieorchester 2024)


Kerem Hasan is regarded as one of the most exciting young British conductors. Winning the Nestlé and Saltzburg Festival Young Conductors Award in the summer of 2017 laid the foundation for his flourishing international career. Prior to that, he had already gained attention as a finalist in the Donatella Flick Conducting Competition in London and as Associate Conductor of the Welsh National Opera.

From 2019 to 2023, he served as Chief Conductor of the Tiroler Symphonieorchester Innsbruck in Austria to great success.

Highlights of the 2023/2024 season include guest engagements with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, SWR Symphonieorchester, and Turku Philharmonic.

He will make his debuts with the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Kymi Sinfonietta, PHION Orchestra, RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and Collegium Musicum Basel. Further afield, in North America, Kerem Hasan will work together with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra for the first time.

Returning invitations will take him to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, MDR Sinfonieorchester, Noord Nederlands Orkest, Romanian National Radio Orchestra, and Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música.

Kerem Hasan wins Nestlé and Saltzburg Festival Young Conductors Award 2017

Schumann's Manfred overture shows Kerem Hasan to be an extremely impulsive and precise orchestra leader. The little black-haired maestro brings the revolutionary attitude into play with the first storm chords. Hasan knows how to impressively fan the turbulent emotions and calm them down again.

- Ludwigsburger Kreiszeitung, Dietholf Zerweck, 29.01.2024

SWR Symfonieorchester

Guided lovingly by Kerem Hasan, the orchestra of Opera North sighs and swoons its way winningly through Puccini's score.

- The Guardian, Sarah Noble, 27.10.2023

Opera North - La Rondine

Kerem Hasan knew how to weave together all the richly ornamented arabesques of sound and evoke visual images that sparkled and shone in the sunlight but equally inhabited the spectral shadows. It was Hasan's very skilful balancing of individual instruments and sections which commanded attention throughout.

- Bachtrack, Alexander Hall, 05.05.2022

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

England's 30-year-old Kerem Hasan appeared to be the kind of clear communicator you want in any leadership position, emphasizing wide-ranging and oft-changing dynamics throughout the evening. And his graceful, balletic movement vocabulary was ideal for such transporting repertoire.

Minnesota Orchestra

Stylish sparks fly with Kerem Hasan and the LSO -

in Hasan's hands it is low-fat and high flavour, creaminess offset with piquancy. He has a superb technique, combining rhythmic exactitude with an elegant and expressive legato that lets this shapely music intuit itself.

- Bachtrack, Benjamin Poore, 08.10.2020

London Symphony Orchestra

Hasan showed not only remarkable control and poise on the podium, his musical ideas brought Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 to vivid life... The performance was an edge-of-the-seat from beginning to end as the symphony musicians expertly followed Hasan's direction.

- Toronto Star, John Terauds, 11.04.2019

Toronto Symphony Orchestra

On the podium stood Kerem Hasan, and he conducted the orchestra as if he has been born to do so.

- Politiken, Thomas Michelsen, 24.11.2018

Danish National Symphony Orchestra

This 26-year-old takes Haitink's interpretation remarkably smoothly, albeit with less bitterness and less hopelessness. The musicians applauded, this is the guy they are going to keep an eye on.
