Principal Guest Conductor and composer
His connections with the orchestra date back to 2010, since then he has been a recurring guest leading the orchestra. In 2018 by creating the position of ’Principal Guest Conductor’ our co-operation became official.
Besides working with the Dohnányi Orchestra, he is also Music Director of the Wiener Volksoper Orchestra, Guest Conductor for the Wiener Symphoniker and Principal Conductor of the Schönbrunn Orchester Wien. Moreover, he is an avid composer.
Guido has no favourite composer, he believes there are two kinds of music: good and bad. His beloved pieces are Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier, Alban Berg: Wozzeck and Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde.
He is married and has a daughter.
“I love working here because together with these insanely talented musicians we are capable of accomplishing anything. They are brave and not afraid to take risks. This is exactly what art needs in order to be true. I wish the orchestra another 25 years and to find plenty of joy in making music.”
