“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

Recent and forthcoming highlights include his Hamburg State Opera debut conducting the premiere of Immer weiter by Irene Galindo Quero and Jesse Boekman, the Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, and the Haydn Orchestra di Bolzano e Trento. An assistant and protégé of both Yves Abel and Robert Spano, George has developed over the years a deep knowledge of the wider opera repertoire in international houses including the Metropolitan Opera New York, the Opéra National de Paris, Theatre an der Wien and the Aspen Opera Theater Center.
