Most recent projects include a performance series of Madama Butterfly at the Royal Opera Copenhagen, a revival of Viaggio a Reims at the Hannover State Opera, the continuation of a CD series for Capriccio with works by Walter Braunfels, concerts with the Orchestra of the Gothenburg Opera, the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Weimar and a new production of Il Trovatore at the opera festival Østfold/Norway.


Gregor Bühl gained international attention by launching the highly-acclaimed new Ring des Nibelungen cycle at the Royal Opera House in Stockholm. His interpretation was enthusiastically received by audience and press alike. The entire production was recorded and broadcast by Swedish Television and is available on DVD.

Maestro Bühl gave his North American debut with Fidelio at the Canadian Opera Company Toronto and his South America debut at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires with Lehàr’s Merry Widow. He has appeared as guest conductor at the Opéra National de Montpellier, the Semperoper Dresden , the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Leipzig Opera.

His concert engagements have presented him extensively in Germany, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, working with the Radio Symphony Orchestras in Berlin, Hamburg, Hilversum and Hannover; with the Finnish and Danish Radio Orchestras; with the Israel Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Weimar, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Düsseldorf Symphony an the Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland Pfalz.

Mr. Bühl was first engaged as GMD Gerd Albrecht’s assistant at the Hamburg State Opera and was shortly after chosen for the position of 1. Kapellmeister at the Hannover State Opera. During this six year engagement he conducted a broad operatic repertoire, including not only the major German and Italian operas, but also important contemporary works.


Mr. Bühl’s discography includes, among others:

  • the Weber/Kurpinski/Crusell Clarinet concertos with Sharon Kam and ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orfeo (2020)
  • Walter Braunfels: Fantastical Apparitions of a Theme by Hector Berlioz Op. 25 / Sinfonia brevis, op. 6 with Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, Capriccio (2019)

  • the award winning recording of American clarinet music with Sharon Kam and the London Symphony Orchestra, available on Warner classics (2002).


Gregor Bühl started his conducting studies at the Musikhochschule in Düsseldorf with Wolfgang Trommer. He participated in master classes with Ferdinand Leitner, Gary Bertini and Gerd Albrecht.

Since April 2016 Mr. Bühl is professor at the Academy of Opera in Oslo.


In 1995, Mr. Bühl was awarded the second prize at the Nikolai Malko Conductors Competition in Copenhagen and in 1993 the culture prize of Berenberg Bank in Hamburg. He also received scholarships from “Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben” and “DAAD”.

Strauss, Bartok: Staatsorchester Stuttgart

“Gregor Bühl führte das formidabel spielende Staatsorchester nicht nur sicher durch die Untiefen dieser Partitur, sondern animierte das Orchester zu einem Musizieren, das man nicht so schnell vergessen wird: emphatisch, packend, dringlich.“

– Frank Armbruster, Stuttgarter Zeitung

Strauss, Trojahn, Schumann: Konzert in Montpellier

“Ah quel chef! Les qualités du chef d’orchestre sont souvent des éléments déterminants, impalpables, qui conditionnent l’interpretation ainsi que l’écoute du public. Vendredi 27 mars, dans la salle Berlioz assez pleine pour l’occasion, l’Orchestre de Montpellier placé sous la direction der Gregor Bühl, on comprend qu’un grand concert va avoir lieu!“
