Oscar Jockel

Oscar Jockel is a conductor and composer in equal measures and doesn’t see these two fields as contrary to each other - with the one looking backwards and the other looking forward - but as complementary. His fascination for sound can be heard in his compositions and interpretations of new music as well as in his concerts as interpreter of historic music.

Born in 1995 in Regensburg (Germany), Jockel studied at Mozarteum Univeristy of Salzburg composition with Achim Bornhöft and conducting with Reinhard Goebel, Bruno Weil and Johannes Kalitzke as well as composition with Klaus Lang at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Graz. At the moment Oscar Jockel lives and works in Paris where he deepens his studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in conducting with Alain Altinoglu and in composition with Frédéric Durieux.

As a conductor Oscar Jockel was invited to several Festivals, such as to the Daegu International Contemporary Music Festival in South Korea or the Festival DIALOGE in Salzburg. As a conducting assistant and conductor he worked with orchestras such as the Karajan-Akademie der Berliner Philharmoniker, the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra, the WDR Sinfonieorchester in Cologne, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Münchner Symphonikern or the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra. 2019 he received a Conducting Seminar Fellowship of the Tanglewood Music Center with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons.

Jockel received important impulses in masterclasses, amongst others with Peter Gülke, Neeme Järvi, Paavo Järvi and Benjamin Zander. Especially Reinhard Goebel was important for his artistic development as a conductor within the past few years.

As a composer Jockel is currently working on compositions for International Brucknerfest 2020 as well as for the season 2020/21 of the Brucknerhaus in Linz, the Berliner Barock Solisten and the International Festival DIALOGE 2019.

In the past years he was professor at the liberal arts university Salzburg College teaching composition and was invited as visiting professor at the Indian Institute of Technology in Hyderabad in February 2019.
