Marie Rosenmir, conductor

Biography

Marie Rosenmir’s route to conducting via an impressive career as a professional organist, pianist and singer has made her an operatic and orchestral leader of rare sensitivity and versatility. She has been praised for her charisma, diligence, vibrancy and character and for the space, breadth and detail with which her performances unfold.

Marie began her conducting career on the music staff of the Gothenburg Opera, where she conducted Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, and went on to lead opera productions at Folkoperan in Stockholm. In 2017 she made her conducting debut at the Royal Swedish Opera with Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. During the 2018/19 Season she was invited back to the Gothenburg Opera and in 2021 she returned to Folkoperan, Stockholm, to lead a new production.

As a symphonic conductor Marie works regularly with all the major Swedish orchestras including Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Swedish Opera Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, Gävle Symphony Orchestra and Malmö Opera Orchestra. She also conducts the Stockholm Sinfonietta, the Nordic Chamber Orchestra, Wermland Opera Orchestra, Västerås Sinfonietta, DalaSinfoniettan and the orchestra of Norrlandsoperan.

Outside Sweden, Marie has worked with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (London), Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra (Olomouc), Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra (Zlin), Paris Mozart Orchestra, Odense Symphony Orchestra, Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra and Collegium Musicum Bergen.

Marie’s repertoire ranges from the music of the eighteenth century to the music of tomorrow. She feels a special affinity with Swedish music and has premiered several works both as a conductor and as a singer. She is one of the founders of the contemporary music group Inversion, commissioning and premiering works by contemporary Nordic women composers. Together with KammarensembleN, the leading Swedish contemporary music ensemble, Marie has made recordings of important new works for broadcasters SVT and SR.

Marie received the Swedish Conductor’s Award in 2006 and was awarded the Marianne and Sigvard Bernadotte Arts Fund Award in the same year. As both singer and conductor she was taught by some of the greatest names in the field including Elisabeth Söderström, Thomas Quasthoff, Graham Johnson, Johannes Schlaefli and Alan Gilbert. She holds a diploma degree in conducting from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where she studied with Jorma Panula. In 2021 she was chosen by Jukka-Pekka Saraste to participate in the LEAD Foundation master-class in Finland, where she was mentored by Hannu Lintu, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Saraste himself.

Marie is a passionate advocate for openness and excellence in the field of music, and was chosen by Volvo to front their major advertising campaign Life is in the Details in 2016. The same year she also conducted The Nobel Prize Award Ceremony, which was broadcast live all over the world.

Marie was recently named Associate Fellow for the seasons 2022-24 by the Taki Alsop Conducting Fellowship, established by Marin Alsop.
