"... a conductor refreshingly unconcerned with his own image, yet clearly scrupulously involved with the music."
The Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten 12.03.2015 on Bäumer's début with the Dresden Staatskapelle.
Hermann Bäumer has been Principal Conductor of the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Mainz and Music Director of the city's Staatstheater since the 2011/2012 season. His thoughtful and imaginative programming, together with a willingness to confront lesser-known operatic repertoire have won him the plaudits of audience and press alike. As a former member of the Berlin Philharmonic he understands the subtleties of working successfully with an orchestra and is valued by orchestras the world over for his modest manner and commitment to the music.
