Eugene Kohn began his career as piano accompanist to opera stars Maria Callas, Franco Corelli, Luciano Pavarotti and Renata Tebaldi.
His formal studies included apprenticeships with renowned conductors Fausto Cleva, Thomas Schippers, and Erich Leinsdorf.
After several years of concentrated symphonic experience with regional orchestras, Mo. Kohn began conducting extensively at New York’s Metropolitan Opera, leading to debuts in several other major opera houses (Vienna, Hamburg, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Naples, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, etc) as well as prestigious orchestras worldwide.
From 1992 to 1997 Maestro Kohn was Principal Guest Conductor of the Bonn Opera. From 1994 to 2001 he was also Music Director of the Puerto Rico Symphony, where he is now Music Director Emeritus. His work with this orchestra has been distinguished with significant growth in audience, community participation, and funding. Kohn currently divides his time evenly between opera and symphony, and has recently done several cycles of the works of Mahler, and Stravinsky.
Mo. Kohn has conducted several CD’s and videos with Placido Domingo, including EMI’s award winning “Roman Heroes” with the London Symphony, and ‘Opera Gala’ with RuthAnn Swenson, Thomas Hampson, and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Mo. Kohn can also be heard as piano accompanist to Maria Callas on EMI’s 3 CD release “The Master Classes”, and has recently re-created his actual role as Miss Callas’ accompanist in Zefirelli’s new (2002 release) film “Callas Forever”, making his screen acting debut opposite Fanny Ardent and Jeremy Irons.
