28 May 2024

Der Österreichische Musiktheaterpreis has nominated Bernhard Lang's 'Hiob' in the best premiere category. Tim Anderson conducted the premiere at Staatstheater Klangenfurt in Winter 2023 which received excellent reviews. 

"Tim Anderson acts with verve and power on the podium of the Carinthian Symphony Orchestra, making Bernhard Lang's orchestral sounds, enhanced with synthesizer and quarter-tone experiments, shine."

Jörn Florian Fuchs, BR Klassik

"It is precisely in the combination of his entirely contemporary tonal language with traditional melodic elements that Lang strikes a chord with today's audiences, as the enthusiasm at the end of the Klagenfurt premiere proved... The British-German conductor Tim Anderson, an authority in the field of contemporary music, seems to have enjoyed working with the Carinithian Symphony Orchestra as well as the choir..."
Michael Cerha, Der Standard

"Bernhard Lang's music is a deliberately eclectic mix of styles... Tim Anderson holds the tension at the podium of the Carinthian Symphony Orchestra."
Die Presse

"On the musical side of the production, British conductor Tim Anderson has some experience of contemporary repertoire and leads the large orchestra through the work with infectious enthusiasm."
Valentino Hribernig-Körber, Online Merker - Die internationale Kulturplattform

The winners will be announced on the 1st of September 2024 in a ceremony at the Volksoper Vienna.
