BIOGRAPHY

Reinhard Fuchs (*1974) first studied accordion at the Brucknerkonservatorium Linz (1991-1995) and then trained as a composer with Michael Jarell (1996-2002). In 1997/98 he spent a year at the University of Miami, Florida. Further valuable impulses for his compositions derived from his studies with Brian Ferneyhough, Marco Stroppa, Magnus Lindberg, Klaus Huber and others. In 1997, he also founded the composers’ group “Gegenklang” together with collegues.

In addition to composition commissions by renowned ensembles and organisers (Klangforum Wien, Vienna Konzerthaus, Konzerthaus Berlin, Musiktage Donaueschingen etc.), Reinhard Fuchs can look back on several international prizes and awards. His compositions have been performed by ensembles such as Klangforum Wien, RSO Wien, Les Percussions de Strasbourg and conductors the likes of Johannes Kalitzke, Matthias Pintscher, as well as at festivals such as Wien Modern, Salzburger Festspiele, Musiktage Donaueschingen, Musikprotokoll, Hörgänge, Konzerthaus Berlin, Contemporary Music Festival Alicante, etc.

Since 2008, Reinhard Fuchs is artistic director and general manager of PHACE. In 2014, he received the Erste-Bank-Compositions-Prize and he was one of the main composers of the festival WIEN MODERN. In 2015, the label KAIROS released a portrait CD.
