“George Jackson raised the stature of the music to a rarely-encountered level, absolutely enthralling from first bar to last.”

Winner of the 2015 Aspen Conducting Prize, London-born conductor George Jackson came to attention after stepping in at short notice with the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducting the Austrian premiere of Michael Jarrell’s Ombres

Highlights in 2018 include his company debut at Opera Holland Park’s new production of Così Fan Tutte, and his involvement with Orchestre de Paris, stepping in at short notice for Daniel Harding at the Philharmonie to conduct a programme featuring Ives’ Fourth Symphony.  

Recent and forthcoming highlights include his Hamburg State Opera debut conducting the premiere of Immer weiter by Irene Galindo Quero and Jesse Boekman, and concerts with the Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and the Haydn Orchestra di Bolzano e Trento.
