Biography


 

Hailed as one of the most versatile and passionate conductors of his generation, Pablo González is an inspirational musician to orchestras and audiences throughout the world, “attentive to every silence and every cue for the entire symphony orchestra, weaving and managing this tonal revolution” (Opera World).

Highly sought-after as a guest conductor across Europe, ‘18/’19 season is dominated by strong German presence including return visits to Konzerthausorchester Berlin and Gürzenich-Orchester Köln, as well as debuts with Frankfurt Radio Symphony and Dresden Philharmonic. In Germany, Pablo enjoys special relationship with The Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern with whom he has many successful symphonic and recording projects to his acclaim. Their Schumann CD with Lena Neudauer was awarded the prestigious International Classical Music Award. Further significant collaborations in ‘18/’19 season include return visits to Helsinki Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Liége and a debut with Lahti Symphony.

‘17/’18 season was marked by highly successful debut with City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra for which Classical Source remarked that González gave the CBSO its head in an account as attentive to detail as to the fantasia-like structure. Not its least attraction was a thoughtful approach to the coda, tender and affecting without a hint of that sentimentality such as Mussorgsky would have abjured. Pablo also returned to the The Hallé in Manchester for the third time for the opening of the concert-season and made highly acclaimed debut with Residentie Orkest in The Hague which led to immediate re-invitation.

In his native Spain, Pablo is highly in demand and enjoys fruitful relationships with Galicia Symphony Orchestra, Spanish Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra, City of Granada Orchestra and Castilla y León Symphony Orchestra. From 2010 - 2015, Pablo was Music Director of the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona I Nacional de Catalunya.

Beyond Spain, distinguished highlights of the recent seasons include collaborations with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Warsaw Philharmonic, Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana and NHK Symphony Orchestra.

In winter 2018 Pablo conducts Opera Tosca production in Oviedo. Additional distinguished recent opera highlights include conducting Don Giovanni and L’elisir d’amore for two successful Glyndebourne tours; Carmen in San Sebastian; a double-bill of Poulenc’s La Voix Humaine and Montsalvatge’s Una Voce in Off, as well as Die Zauberflöte, Strauss’ Daphne and Wagner’s Rienzi (in concert) at Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona, and Don Giovanni and Madama Butterfly for Opera de Oviedo.

Pablo is very active in the recording studio and in September ’16 he released for Naxos 3 volumes of orchestral works by Enrique Granados with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra. Autumn last year has seen the release of Bizet’s Carmen and L'Arlesienne suites which Pablo also recorded with Barcelona Symphony Orchestra. Further releases include Prokofiev’s The Prodigal Son with SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg.

Pablo has successfully collaborated with distinguished soloists including Maxim Vengerov, Nikolai Lugansky, Javier PerianesKhatia Buniatishvili, Beatrice Rana, Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon, Sol Gabetta, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Isabelle Faust, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Arcadi Volodos, Viktoria Mullova, Johannes Moser, Truls Mork and Viviane Hagner.

Born in Oviedo, Pablo studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Pablo first captured international attention with his victories at the Donatella Flick and Cadaqués International Conducting competitions. He has previously held the positions of Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra of the City of Granada and an Assistant conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Standing out was young conductor Pablo González, who was attentive to every silence and every cue for the entire symphony orchestra, weaving and managing this tonal revolution
— Isaac J. Martín, Opera World (February 2015)
[Pablo González] provided the score [Madama Butterfly] with a symphonic feel that greatly benefited the musical discourse. Ample and varied dynamics, richness in timbre and a deep engagement from the Oviedo Filarmonía were all key elements
— Ramón Avello, El Comercio (November 2014)
González conducted Richard Strauss’s spectacular tone poem [Thus spoke Zarathustra] with an eloquent narrative thrust, elegant phrasing and a solid understanding of the composer’s architecture
— Javier Pérez Senz, El País (October 2014)
González instilled greatness into a work [Verdi’s Requiem] that combines, in equal percentages, lyric emotion, expressive sincerity and spirituality void of rapturous mysticism
— Javier Pérez Senz, El País (April 2013)
González approached Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra successfully and in a very unique way
— Manel Cereijo, El Periódico de Catalunya (January 2013)
Pablo González, receptive, flexible, gave the reins to the soloist [Arcadi Volodos] but he remained attentive and close [...] A vigorous reading by Pablo González [...] Little by little the work that this tenacious and patient conductor has been doing with this orchestra ever since he arrived is showing. It won’t be long before it shines through in all its glory.
— Xavier Chavarria, Revista Musical Catalana (October 2012)
With his virtuosic baton technique, impulsive sign language, and evident empathy, Gonzalez made a convincing contribution to this music. Russian themes, along with those of dreams, were the headline. Moody expanse was created in the Adagio, with a folk-like horn sound, followed by the darting, graceful Scherzando and a sweeping waltz. Even the final, counterpoint-adorned, rapid dance with its banal closing bars came together, under Gonzalez’s direction, in harmonious unity. A perfect Russian evening.
— Saarbrücker Zeitung (November 2017)
A calm and paused, yet unstoppable career”
— José Luis Pérez de Arteaga, Beckmesser (February 2011)
He has a clear idea about where he wants to go and he communicates it effectively and through limpid language
— Xavier Pujol, El País (January 2011)
The London Symphony Orchestra weekend in Madrid had a protagonist: Pablo González
— Luis Suñén, Scherzo (July 2010)

 

And last, but not least, on the honour roll, the extraordinary work of the Oviedo-born conductor Pablo González (1975). To each his own, and in this concert, and for the whole programme, he gets the highest place on the podium. It’s just fair
— José Luis López Lopez, ABC Sevilla. (January 2017) English translation by Covadonga González Bernardo
