WildKat PR is delighted to be working with New Zealand-born conductor Rachael Young again, supporting her in establishing her profile in Germany and promoting her cooperation with orchestras.

Being described as ‘a serious musician and a very sensitive and dynamic conductor’, Rachael Young began her conducting studies in 2009 in her native country, New Zealand, as a professional cellist before she was based in London.

As an assistant conductor, she has worked alongside Paavo Järvi in concerts and recordings with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, including the recent recording of Prokofiev and Shostakovich’s cello concerti with Steven Isserlis. In addition, she worked with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and violinist Viktoria Mullova on Shostakovich’s works. She has also worked with conductor Leonid Grin with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Chile.

As ‘a musician of great integrity and insight’, guest-conducting engagements took Rachael Young to South America and Europe. Highlights include her successful debut in Berlin at the Berlin Philharmonie with Deutsches Kammerorchester (DKO) Berlin, working with soloist Viktoria Postnikova, as well as in Santiago with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Chile.

WildKat PR is looking forward to be working with Rachael Young once more. Keep up to date with Rachael on her website and on the WildKat PR blog.

WildKat PR welcomes back the brilliant conductor Rachael Young to its client roster. Highlights of Rachael’s 2015/16 season include 2 performances in Santiago with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Chilé  on the 23rd and 24th October and the 18th May with the Kammerorchester Berlin.

Having started her career as a cellist in her native New Zealand and moving on to Massachusetts and London with her studies, Rachael started conducting in 2009, progressing quickly under the guidance of Maestro Leonid Grin.

Rachael has thrived by working with ensembles including the Russian Virtuosi of Europe, the London Soloists Chamber and the Parnu City Orchestra. Likewise, her experience has grown as an assistant conductor alongside Paavo Jarvi and Leonid Grin and in recordings with Steven Isserlis of the Prokofiev and Shostakovich cello concerto. In recent years, conducting masterclasses at both the Jarvi Academy Summer and Winter Academies in Estonia have further determined Rachael’s growing reputation.
