Bruckner - Symphony No. 1, 4 (2017)

Gustavo Gimeno

It remains one of the great puzzles of Romantic music: while some of Anton Bruckner’s powerful and multi-faceted oeuvre is long established in the concert hall, other aspects of his work, no less impressive, remain neglected. We are still to fully come to grips with Bruckner and his music.
That this is the case today, when the history of art and culture in the 19th century holds few secrets, is not something that can be reduced to a single factor. It is rather the result of the interplay of long-established perceptions of this time, of musicians in general and of this one musician in particular. As a generalisation, however, it is fair to say
that it is not easy to fit Bruckner neatly into a linear presentation of musical history. His musical personality is too complex, and his technical and aesthetic development too ambivalent

Gustavo Gimeno

Born in Valencia, Gustavo Gimeno began his international conducting career in 2012, when at that time he was a member of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, as an assistant to Mariss Jansons. Significant experience was also harnessed in assisting Bernard Haitink and Claudio Abbado, with whom he forged an intense and influential mentorship. Following his acclaimed conducting debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2014, Gustavo Gimeno took up the post of Music Director of the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg with the 2015-16 season. In his second season, he continues this partnership with a focus on the great orchestral literature including Mahler Symphony No. 4, Beethoven Symphony No. 7, Ravel’s “Daphnis and Chloé”, Stravinsky’s “Sacre” and new commissions of Mark-Anthony Turnage and Francisco Coll. Aside from his Music Director commitments in Luxembourg, Gustavo Gimeno has collaborated with a select list of orchestras including Munich Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Rotterdam Philharmonic, and the Philharmonia Zurich. In 2015, Gimeno led the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on tour to Asia. In 2016-17 season, Gimeno will make his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. and the Orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia. He will also appear in Vienna twice that season, with the OPL at the Wiener Konzerthaus and with Vienna Symphony at the Musikverein. “His musical rhetorics are refined, his grip on the structure of the compositions is accurate and convincing” observed Joep Stapel in the NRC Handelsblad, “Gimeno knew how to keep the tension and made the musicians … excel.”
