"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."

BIOGRAPHY

The 2022/23 season sees Nuno Coelho commence his Chief Conductor and Artistic Directorship of the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias. He also begins his fifth year as Guest Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra with a production of José Saramago’s reimagining of Mozart’s Don Giovanni to mark the writer’s centenary. Highlights elsewhere include debuts with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Tampere Philharmonic and Sinfonieorchester St Gallen; returns to Antwerp Symphony and Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife; and a tour with the Joven Orquesta Nacional de España

 

Last season saw Nuno debut with the Helsinki Philharmonic, Dresden Philharmonie, Staatsorchester Hannover, Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Gavle Symphony, Malmö Symphony, Residentie Orkest, Orchestre philharmonique de Strasbourg and Orchestre National de Lille; and continue his relationships with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia and Orquestra Simfónica de Barcelona.

 

In March 2022 he conducted a semi-staged Così fan tutte at the Gulbenkian, adding to opera credits which include productions of Hänsel und Gretel, La traviata, Cavalleria rusticana, Rusalka, Das Tagebuch der Anne Frank and Seven Deadly Sins.

 

Nuno won First Prize at the 2017 Cadaqués International Conducting Competition and has since gone on to conduct the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Symphoniker Hamburg, Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León, Noord Nederlands Orkest and Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino. He was a Los Angeles Philharmonic Dudamel Fellow between 2018-19 and stepped in for Bernard Haitink that same season to make his debut with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Between 2015 and 2017 he was both a Tanglewood Conducting Fellow and Assistant Conductor of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.

 

Born in Porto, Nuno studied violin in Klagenfurt and Brussels and conducting at the Zürich University of the Arts with Johannes Schlaefli. He won the Neeme Järvi Prize at the Gstaad Menuhin Festival and in 2015 he was admitted into the German Music Council’s Dirigentenforum and their roster of "Conductors of Tomorrow". 

 

Literature and tennis occupy his time off-podium.

ORQUESTA SINFÓNICA DE GALICIA

"Coelho demonstrated the quality of his baton and his inspiration, giving life to a noble and serene interpretation that knew how to convey to the public the essence of such a sublime score."

Bachtrack, 15 October 2020

"The version of the OSG led by Nuno Coelho was impeccable, careful, aware of the language and its meaning."

Scherzo, 11 October 2020
