Toronto Symphony Orchestra Announces New Music Director Gustavo Gimeno

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra has announced the appointment of Spanish conductor Gustavo Gimeno as its new Music Director

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in Canada, has this week announced the appointment of 42-year-old Spanish conductor Gustavo Gimeno as its new Music Director – effective from the commencement of the 2020-2021 season.



"We at the TSO were searching for a leader who would take our highly talented musicians to the next level and, in Maestro Gimeno, we have found exactly that person ..." Orchestra Chair of the Board of Directors Catherine Beck has said.

"Gustavo has all the qualities you could ask for in a modern Music Director ... he will lead the Orchestra with passion and imagination, bring the TSO to where Torontonians live, and stir this city’s appreciation of great music," she has said.

"I am so proud to become the Music Director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra ... from our very first encounter, I connected with the Orchestra’s sound, their cultivated playing and flexibility, and immediately felt at home, both musically and personally ..." Gustavo has said.

"I greatly admire the TSO’s dual commitment to presenting the core repertoire while also introducing new composers and concert formats in a uniquely Canadian way ... I look forward to sharing our musical stories with our loyal audiences everywhere," he has said.

Gustavo will replace conductor Peter Oundjian – whose fourteen year tenure will conclude at the end of the current season.
