Florian Erdl is a freelance conductor.
From October 2023, he will be appointed professor of conducting at the hmt Rostock, where he has already been entrusted with the deputy professorship since March 2020. He conducts all symphony concerts and opera productions there.

In February 2023 Erdl took over the musical direction of the revival of Schreker's "Der Ferne Klang" at the Frankfurt Opera. Since 2017, Erdl has been Sebastian Weigle's musical assistant here on several occasions. After working on Richard Strauss's "Capriccio" (2018), he conducted Mozart's "Magic Flute" (2018) and "Cosí fan tutte" (2022) there, as well as Schreker's "Der Ferne Klang" (2019).

From 2012 Florian Erdl has been 1. Kapellmeister at several theaters: at Theater Pforzheim (here also as an acting GMD), at the Schleswig Holsteinisches Landestheater Flensburg and at Oper Graz.

He organized and conducted the Kammeroper Frankfurt as artistic and musical director for almost 10 years. Guest conducting engagements have taken him to the Nationaltheater Mannheim, the Staatstheater Schwerin, the Kiel Opera and the Landestheater Innsbruck, among others. Concerts brought him together with the Neubrandenburg Philharmonic, the Merck Philharmonic and the Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester.

In Erdl's own rehearsals, special mention should be made of Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", Strauss's "Ariadne auf Naxos", Bartók's "Duke Bluebeard's Castle" and Humperdinck's "Hansel und Gretel", in addition to all of Mozart's great operas and Verdi's "La Traviata", "Macbeth", "Rigoletto" and "Un ballo in maschera".

Erdl's symphony concerts focus on the late Romantic and Expressionist repertoire up to Hans Werner Henze, and he is committed to new music whenever possible.

Of numerous operatic takeovers, Verdi's "Falstaff", Prokofieff's "The Love for Three Oranges", Previn's "A Streetcar Named Desire", Puccini's "Madama Butterfly", Wagner's "Rheingold", Weill's "Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny", and Berg's "Lulu".
