Following the highly successful opening concert of last year’s Festival Musica in Strasbourg, where Pablo Rus Broseta conducted the SWR Symphony Orchestra in joint performances with the Ensemble Modern, the young Spanish conductor became known to a wider international audience. In the spring of 2015, he made his successful debuts with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Orquesta Sinfónica de Radio Televisión Española. He will make his debuts with the Ensemble Intercontemporain and the Orquesta Sinfónica do Porto during the course of the following year, and has been re-invited to both the WDR and the SWR. In the autumn of 2015, he will take up the position of Assistant Conductor of the Seattle Symphony.
Comfortable with both intimate chamber ensembles and full-scale symphonic and operatic repertoire, Pablo Rus Broseta has already gained experience with the Orchestre Les Siècles, which performs on period instruments, and with orchestras such as the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, Bochumer Symphoniker, Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège and the Orquesta de Valencia during his career to date. He has appeared at numerous music festivals including the Klangspuren Schwaz, Transart Festival Bolzano, Ensems Festival Valencia and the Cresc…festival Frankfurt. He has worked closely with such composers as Hans Zender, Johannes Maria Staud, Thomas Adès, Philippe Manoury, Magnus Lindberg, Martin Matalon, Francisco Coll and Luca Francesconi.
Pablo Rus Broseta studied composition and saxophone at the Conservatory of his native Valencia, carrying out further studies in conducting in Lyon, and at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Universität der Künste Berlin. He received valuable input from Bernard Haitink, Pierre Boulez, David Zinman, Kurt Masur and Steven Sloane. Pablo Rus Broseta served as assistant conductor of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège in the 2009/2010 season, the Dutch National Opera Academy in 2010 as well as of the Valencia Youth Symphony Orchestra from 2010 to 2013. In 2011, he founded the Spanish chamber orchestra Grup Mixtour, which he still directs today. There, he aims to revitalise concert experiences through the eclectic programming of music from different eras and with diverse aesthetics.
