Winner (first prize) of the 2001 Mario Gusella International Conductors Competition (Italy)

Highly acclaimed recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and more.

"[Friedel] is obviously a huge talent, if I can judge from this recording. Some major orchestra should sign him to a long-term contract. He appears to be the real thing, a conductor who knows precisely how to draw out the performance he imagines from the orchestra – and what he imagines is quite special indeed.”  --Robert Cummings,, April 2016 

"Lance Friedel is an outstandingly gifted musician and conductor."  --Georg Tintner
