The next chief conductor of the the Orquesta de Valencia will be the German conductor Alexander Liebreich. He will also  be Artistic Advisor to the Palau de la Música de Valencia.

Liebreich, 52, is presently head of the Czech Radio symphony orchestra in Prague. He recently joined UK boutique agency PR-Artists, which negotiated the Spanish deal.



  • Rogerio says:

    The Maestro market is volatile.
    I would recommend short-selling.

  • Gianluigi says:

    His years in Poland with Radio Orchestra in Katowice has been really bad. He has a very little repertoire, and is capable of conducting only the pieces which nobody knows (yet) – all others are shallow, very often mistaken etc…

    • Jonathan Sutherland says:

      I beg to differ with Gianluigi.
      I reviewed the NOSPR orchestra under maestro Liebreich in Katowice in 2018 performing Mahler’s 3rd Symphony. Hardly a ‘piece which nobody knows’.
      Liebreich displayed remarkable insight into this enigmatic work and produced some marvellous sonorities from this excellent orchestra in its superb hall.
      Earlier in his career, Liebreich was assistant to Claudio Abbado with the Berliner Philharmoniker and more recently an important catalyst for the Richard Strauss Festival in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
      This is a smart appointment by the Orquesta de Valencia and the Palau de la Música de Valencia.
