LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Dudamel Fellow 2018/19
CADAQUÉS CONDUCTING COMPETITION
Tanglewood music center orchestra
“The concert concluded with Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements conducted by Nuno Coelho. […] The TMC ensemble responded well to Coelho’s firm direction bringing out details of Stravinsky’s odd rhythms and diverse palate of colors.”
David M. Rice, Classical Source, July 2017
"Nuno Coelho led a smartly paced traversal of the score and drew solid playing from the orchestra."
Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe, 10 Aug 2016
Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunk
Beethoven’s brief choral setting of Goethe’s Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage, was assigned to his assistant, the young Portuguese conductor Nuno Coelho. The piece is barely as long as a concert overture, but Coelho distinguished himself in the way he charted the music’s course from a wonderfully still choral opening to the exuberance of the full forces in the final bars.
