Eve Queler possesses the rare gift of extracting the very essence of a score, creating an atmosphere for performers and audiences which is festive, powerful and electric. She is internationally renowned not only for her ground breaking work as music director of American’s leading opera-in-concert organization, Opera Orchestra of New York (OONY), where she has conducted over 100 operas on the stage of Carnegie Hall to regular sold out houses, but also for her extensive work as a guest conductor of symphonic and opera repertoire in venues that span the international musical world.
Maestro Queler has bowed to standing ovations with the orchestra of Cleveland, Philadelphia, Montreal, London, National Symphony, and with the opera houses of Frankfurt, Rome, Hamburg, Bonn, Prague, Barcelona, Sydney, and at St.Petersburgs Kirov Opera. It is her personal, lyric style of conducting that has won her countless accolades; words repeatedly used by the press to describe it range from sensitive,intelligent, precise and insightful to vigorous, fiery, authoritative and thrilling.
Queler’s sincere touch is recognizable to many: she instinctively knows how to reveal the human qualities of a work, and guides tempos and shapes phrases with expert feel and grace, drawing a beautiful, balanced sound.
