Klaus Mäkelä

Klaus Mäkelä was born in 1996. He is a young and gifted conductor and prizewinning cellist. He has conducted almost all the Finnish orchestras and last season made his debut with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra and the South Denmark Philharmonic. This coming season he will be conducting top orchestras in Europe, North America and Asia. Mäkelä was recently appointed assistant to Esa-Pekka Salonen for a performance of the Ring Cycle at the Finnish National Opera, to start in 2019. His debut with the Finnish National Opera was in May, when he conducted Erkki Melartin's Aino. At the Sibelius Academy he studied orchestral conducting under Jorma Panula and cello with Marko Ylönen, Timo Hanhinen and Hannu Kiiski. He has frequently performed chamber music at Finnish music festivals and as soloist with a good number of Finnish orchestras. Klaus Mäkelä plays a Giovanni Grancino cello from 1698 owned by the OP Art Foundation.
