Niklas Willén - Conductor
Niklas Willén: Photo Michael Claxton Media "In Niklas Willén's interpretation of the paintings turned into music [Nielsen's 2nd Symphony] a transformation takes place from Nielsen's raw laughter to a feeling of human understanding. Willén shared the portraits of Nielsen's caricatures. Niklas Willén, the finest Swedish conductor of his generation, has held positions as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Chief Conductor of the WDR Radio Orchestra Köln, General Music Director of the Volkstheater Rostock and Chief Conductor of the North German Philharmonic Rostock ("The North German Philharmonic, conducted by its chief conductor and General Music Director, Niklas Willén, played Mozart's score [The Marriage of Figaro] in a fresh and stylish way that was also gallant and always well phrased. Niklas Willén has toured Europe with the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and Sønderjyllands Symphony Orchestra. His career is increasingly focussed on Germany and throughout the Nordic countries with many of its principal orchestras and opera houses that include the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, in Norrköping, Stavanger, Malmö, Trondheim, Iceland, Tallinn and Swedish Radio Choir alongside the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Flanders Philharmonic, OFUNAM in Mexico, Brabants Orkest and Noordhollands Philharmonisch, NWD Philharmonie, Augsburg, Jena and Gera in Germany as well as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland and Ulster Orchestra. The review from his debut with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra in May '11 read: "... he dazzled in Nielsen's Symphony No. 3 … with such deep conviction, freedom and joy it was as though it could have been at least Beethoven's Symphony No. 7" (Ruch Muzyczny) and range elsewhere from Germany: "Willén accentuated his great art and his intense musical interpretation of the Helios Overture and even more with Sibelius's second.
