The Künstleragentur Tobischek was founded as “Essener Konzertdirektion” in 1985 by Rosemarie Tobischek, who managed it in cooperation with her husband Dr. Herbert Tobischek. In 1990 he founded an opera agency of his own. Both agencies were linked in 1996 to “Konzertdirektion Tobischek”. Since June 2001, after Rosemarie Tobischek’s death, Herbert Tobischek has been the manager of the agency. The Künstleragentur Tobischek represents artists of classical music in Germany and abroad.
Dr. Herbert Tobischek was born in Vienna. He studied violin, bassoon, percussion instruments and musicology. From 1967 to 1986 he managed orchestras; first in Vienna the Niederoesterreichisches Tonkünstlerorchester and as the director of the Philharmonia Hungarica, before he started his own business.
