Frank Beermann has quickly established himself as one of the leading conductors of his generation. As general music director of the Chemnitz Opera and principal conductor of the Robert-Schumann-Philharmonic Orchestra, he has enjoyed great success in both the operatic and the symphonic repertoire. His constant curiosity and great interest in unknown and new repertoire have lead to exciting CD releases on cpo, BIS and Sony Classical. For these he was awarded amongst others the Echo Klassik 2009, the Pizzicato Excellentia and Supersonic Award in Luxemburg. The german premiere of Peter Eötvös' "Love and other demons" in Chemnitz was as unanimously and rapturously received by the german press as was the rediscovery of operas such as Otto Nicolai's "Il Templario", „Heimkehr des Verbannten“, Hans Pfitzner's "Die Rose vom Liebesgarten" or Franz Schrecker's "Der Schmied von Gent".
German opera magazine „Das Opernglas“ wrote in September 2011: „Frank Beermann is on his way to become one of the most important german conductors“.
In recent years, the focus of his wide repertoire has increasingly become the works of Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler, Anton Bruckner and Richard Wagner. After recording the complete Mozart piano concertos with Matthias Kirschenreit and the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, he went on to conduct both "The Magic Flute" and "The Marriage of Figaro" at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin during the past two seasons. In 2011, Frank Beermann made his debut at the Semperoper in Dresden conducting Richard Strauss' Arabella. He has also been working, amongst others, with the Philharmonic Orchestra Hamburg, the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig, the Bavarian State Orchestra, the Orchestras of the Bavarian Broadcast, the Westgerman Broadcast and the Northgerman Broadcast, the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Stockholm, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Santiago de Chile, the Bruckner Orchestra Linz, the Royal Orchestra of Seville, the Orchestra of the Liceu Barcelona, the Bern Symphony Orchestra.
His recording of the complete Schumann symphonies with the Robert Schumann Philharmonie was published 2010 and will shortly be followed by the operas "Die Rose vom Liebesgarten" by Pfitzner, "Der Schmied von Gent" by Schreker and „Heimkehr des Verbannten“ by Nicolai .
Upcoming highlights in 2011/2012 are a cycle with all the Beethoven symphonies with the Robert-Schumann-Philharmonic Orchestra, a new production and CD recording of Richard Strauss’ „Die schweigsame Frau“ and Mahler 9th symphonie with the Bruckner Orchestra Linz.
