Jascha von der Goltz

Currently in his second year as Assistant Conductor of the Orchestra Musikkollegium Winterthur under the mentorship of Roberto Gonzalez-Monjas, Jascha Von der Goltz gained international attention as the First Prize winner of the 8th International Panula Conducting Competition in 2021 and previously for his Second Prize win at the 2019 International Conducting Competition “Jeunesse Musicale” in Bucharest. Jascha is also a student of the Masters of Orchestral Conducting programme at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste under the tutelage of Prof. Johannes Schlaefi. 

As Assistant Conductor with the Orchestra Musikkollegium Winterthur, Jascha already conducted programmes including music by G. Donizetti, Franz von Suppé and P. Mascagni (Overtures Don Pasquale, Light Cavalry, Intermezzo Cavalleria Rusticana) as well as a highly acclaimed performance of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite and Ravel’s Ballet Ma mère l’oye for which Jascha received praise for his „sensitive touch and insight for the two complex and magnificent scores by Maurice Ravel and Igor Stravinsky, which challenged the orchestra's musical potential and placed it in the limelight“ [Landbote]. Later this season, Jascha will conduct the orchestra in a production of Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale with actor Graham F. Valentine, and will close the orchestra’s season with a program featuring works by Erwin Schulhoff, Paul Hindemith and George Antheil.

Jascha’s most recent and future guest appearances include SWR Symphony Orchestra with a programme featuring Mussorgsky/Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition, Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz, Freiburg Philharmonic conducting Tchaikovsky’s Waltzes and the “Transylvania” State Philharmonic Orchestra of Cluj-Napoca in Romania. Summer 2022 also sees Jascha take part in the Gstaad Conducting Academy where he will conduct the Gstaad Festival Orchestra and the Sinfonie Orchester Biel Solothurn.

Jascha has attended masterclasses with esteemed conductors such as Paavo Järvi, Vasily Petrenko, Manuel Hernandez Silva and Nicolas Pasquet, and worked with orchestras such as MDR Symphony Leipzig, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra, Stuttgarter Philharmoniker and Württembergisches Kammerorchester Heilbronn. 

Born in Freiburg, Germany, into a family of early music specialists, he started playing cello at the age of 6 and soon after picked up the piano and the percussion, which led him to performances with orchestras such as Freiburger Barockorchester in venues like Berliner Philharmonie, Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico, Festival d’Aix en Provence.
