Biography | show moreshow less
Gerhard Samuel (1924-2004) studied music in Rochester, New York before attending Yale to study music with Paul Hindemith. He played violin as a musician before he began conducting, with his debut conducting performance being at the Tanglewood Music Festival. He briefly conducted musicals on Broadway before working as an associate conductor with the Minneapolis Symphony. Most of his career was spent with the Oakland Symphony and San Francisco ballet. While his work as a conductor focused on classical composers, Samuel's own compositions leaned towards contemporary and expressionist sounds.
