After studying orchestral conducting with Professor Hermann Michael and singing with Professor Joseph Loibl at the Musikhochschule in Munich, Andreas Wolf began his career as a solo reptiteur at the then Schillertheater in Wuppertal. Shortly afterwards he moved to the Städtische Bühnen Münster as 2nd Kapellmeister. His first guest engagements during this time took him to Mendoza (Argentina) and Athens. This was followed by the Staatstheater of Kassel, Hanover and Saarbrücken. During this time he systematically developed an extensive repertoire from baroque tocontemporary, including film music, and conducted many works including Ariadne auf Naxos, Salome, Parsifal, Tannhäuser, Turandot and the german premiere of John Adams’ Dr. Atomic.
From 2013 to 2021, Andreas Wolf was engaged at the Lübeck Theatre as 1st Kapellmeister and deputy respectively acting General Music Director. His interpretations of Shostakovich’s “Lady Macbeth”, Schreker’s “Der ferne Klang” and Milhaud’s “Christophe Colomb”, among others, attracted great international interest and established his reputation as a specialist for the music of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
He made his debut at Biwako Hall in Japan in 2014, in Daegu (South Korea) in 2016 and at the Teatro Pisa and the Elbphilharmonie in 2019, and has since been a very sought-after guest on the concert Platform. At home and abroad, he has conducted numerous orchestras: Osaka Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Arché, Munich Symphony Orchestra, Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra of the National Theatre Mannheim, Badische Staatskapelle Karlsruhe and the Georgian Chamber Orchestra to name but a few and worked with artists such as Arabella Steinbacher, Christiane Oelze, Detlev Roth and Götz Alsmann, as well as with directors such as Jochen Biganzoli, Stephan Kimmig or Tilman Knabe.
Since the 2021/22 season he is 1st Kapellmeister at the Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar.
