Pablo conducts a programme featuring Rimsky-Korsakov: May Night Overture, Falla: Nights in the Gardens of Spain, Mussorgsky (orch. Rimsky-Korsakov): A Night on the Bare Mountain and Mussorgsky (orch.

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).
Pablo first captured international attention with his victories at the Donatella Flick and Cadaqués International Conducting competitions. Between 2010 – 2015, he was Music Director of the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona I Nacional de Catalunya. He has previously held the positions of Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra of the City of Granada.
