Born in Stockholm in 1963, Carlos Spierer was raised in Berlin. Subsequent to his Violin Studies with Fredell Lack at the University of Houston he studied conducting from 1984 to 1990 with Klauspeter Seibel at the Conservatory for Music in Hamburg. He attended several Master Classes including the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival with Leonard Bernstein in 1987, where he came first in the Conducting Competition.

His first engagement as conductor and Assistant of the Music Director took him to the Kiel Opera for five years until 1995. Further positions as Artistic and Music Director included the Gävle Symphony Orchestra in Sweden from 1997 to 2000, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Minería in Mexico City from 2003 to 2005 as well as the Young Symphony Orchestra of Hessen in 2007. From 2003 to 2011 Carlos Spierer has been Music Director of the Giessen Theatre.
In 1999 Spierer's recording of "Paddington's First Concert" and Poulenc's "Babar the Elephant" together with the Hamburg Symphony was awarded the Echo Prize.
