Marcus Creed


Born: 1951; Eastbourne, Sussex  
British conductor Marcus Creed has spent the bulk of his career in Germany working with some of its most prestigious choral and instrumental ensembles, and as a professor at the Musikhochschule in Köln. He has recorded prolifically, and his interests embrace a spectrum of music that includes composers as diverse as Bach, Handel, Mozart, Schubert, Rossini, Berlioz, Mendelssohn, Bruckner, Ives, Rachmaninov, Vaughan Williams, Stockhausen, Messiaen, Read more Kurtág, Rihm, and Carter, in the fields of choral music, oratorio, opera, chamber music, and orchestral music.

Creed was educated at King's College in Cambridge, Christ Church in Oxford, and the Guildhall School in London. He moved to Berlin in the mid-'70s, where he served as vocal coach and chorus master at the Deutsche Oper, and participated in several chamber music ensembles. He has since worked with a variety of choirs and orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Akademie für Alte Musik, Concerto Köln, Berlin Staatsoper, Berlin Staatskapelle, and most significantly, with the RIAS-Kammerchor, with whom he made numerous recordings.

In 2003, Creed was appointed artistic director of SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart, a group with which he has continued to record a broadly diverse repertoire. In addition to his regular positions, he has participated in a variety of festivals, including Salzburg, Innsbruck, Lucerne, Edinburgh, the Venice Biennale, and Wein Modern. Read less
