Roderick Shaw is a versatile artist, equally at home playing piano or harpsichord or
conducting an orchestra. Indeed, he combined the two for many years, directing his own
baroque orchestra from the keyboard in true 18th century fashion. Now he enjoys performing
both with symphony orchestras and in chamber music with renowned soloists in a repertoire
ranging from Bach to Ligeti.
Furthermore Roderick Shaw has long been fascinated by the dynamic processes between an orchestra and
its conductor. The pianist, musicologist (Cambridge University) and conductor has many years
of management experience with his own chamber orchestra and is now a freelance performer with
Germany′s top orchestras and opera houses. He gives individual coaching and appears as speaker
and consultant in management seminars.
