Gustavo
Gimeno

Conductor

Gustavo Gimeno assumed the post of principal conductor of the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra starting in the 2015–16 season. He previously served as principal percussionist of the Concertgebouworkest from 2001 to 2013, having studied orchestral conducting at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where he took lessons and participated in masterclasses with Ed Spanjaard, Hans Vonk and Iván Fischer. He also assisted Claudio Abbado with the Orchestra Mozart, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, as well as Bernard Haitink with the Orchestra Mozart and Mariss Jansons with the Concertgebouworkest.

Following Gimeno’s debut with the Concertgebouworkest in February 2014, when he stood in for Mariss Jansons, his conducting career went into overdrive. In May of that year, he stood in for Lorin Maazel with the Munich Philharmonic.

He has since conducted the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland and Dallas, the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century. In the spring of 2015, Gimeno made his debut as an opera conductor in a production of Bellini’s Norma at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in his native Valencia.

Gimeno has been invited back to the Concertgebouworkest every year since the first time he conducted it, having led it on a tour of Japan and Taiwan in 2015, and in February 2017 when he conducted three different concert programmes dedicated to Leonard Bernstein. He last led the orchestra in works by Tchaikovsky and Barber in May 2018.
