Shao-Chia Lü/ Conductor


“(Shao-Chia Lü) bietet der Klangkörper in der Philharmonie ein Bild erstrebter Makellosigkeit.“

─Der Tagesspiegel

Lü’s approach to Wagner seemed to take its cue from his strong affiliation with Iatlian opera, which resulted in an intensely lyrical interpretation that flowed with ease.

                                                                American Record Guide


Lyricism is at the heart of Lü’s style, and he brought this quality to Die Walkure as well. The result was a fluid, flowing approach, not a ponderous or weighty one.

 “Under Lü, (NSO) made the fin-de-siecle sound world idiomatic. He coaxed from them a burnished, glowing sound that showed off Strauss’ (Elektra’s) luscious orchestration.” — OPERA



Taiwan-born conductor Shao-Chia Lü studied music in Taipei, later at the Indiana University in Bloomington, USA, and also at the College of Music Vienna. His training was topped off with three important first prizes at renowned international conductor competitions: Besancon, Trento and Amsterdam.



In 1995, he began his opera career as Erster Kapellmeister at the Komische Oper Berlin. Numerous guest performances followed, including the Australian Opera Sydney and the English National Opera, the Theatre de la Monnaie in Brussels, the opera houses of Frankfurt, Hamburg and Stuttgart as well as the Deutsche Oper Berlin. In 1998, Shao-Chia Lü took over the position of General Music Director of both the Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie Koblenz and the Koblenz Theatre.



Shao-Chia Lü, as General Music Director of the Staatsoper Hannover between 2001 and 2006, has established himself firmly as an excellent opera conductor through numerous outstanding performances during this period of such repertoire as: Aida, Ernani, Le nozze di Figaro, Jenufa, Vec Makropulos, Fidelio, Turandot, Madama Butterfly, Tosca, Tristan und Isolde, Der fliegende Holländer, Wozzeck, Der Rosenkavalier, Elektra and Salome.... In the summer 2004, Shao-Chia Lü and the Staatsoper Hannover earned international acknowledgement by performing Pelléas et Mélisande at the renowned Vienna and Edinburgh Festivals.



Shao-Chia Lü's recent opera engagements include: Parsifal , Katja Kabanowa and Tosca in Goteborg, Sweden, La fanciulla del West in Stuttgart, Eugene Onegin at the Komische Oper Berlin, Madama ButterflyTosca and La Bohème in Sydney and Melbourne.



Alongside his opera activities, Shao-Chia Lü is equally at home on concert podiums. In 1994, he had his debut with the Münchner Philharmoniker by replacing Sergiu Celibidache at the last moment for two unchanged programms (including Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8). The triumph of these concerts brought him several further invitations from this orchestra. Apart from the Münchner Philharmoniker, Lü has worked repeatedly with many leading European orchestras, such as the Oslo Philharmonic, the Orchestra Sinfonica di Santa Cecilia in Rome, the Norwegian and Swedish Radio Orchestra, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the Goteborg Symphonics, the Orchestre National de France, the SWR Stuttgart, the Rundfunksinfonieorchster Berlin, the Staatskapelle Weimar and the Frankfurter Museumsorchester. In November 2011, Shao-Chia Lü made his much acclaimed debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. In Asia, after his debut with New Japan Philharmonic in December 2012, Shao-Chia Lü was invited to conduct the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra and the NHK Symphony Orchestra, among others, during the 2013/2014 season.



Shao-Chia Lü has been Music Director of the Taiwan Philharmonic (the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan) since August 2010.
