Rumon Gamba

Chief Conductor of Oulu Sinfonia since January 2022, the British maestro Rumon Gamba has previously served as Principal Conductor and Music Director of NorrlandsOperan (2008 – 15), Chief Conductor of Aalborg Symfoniorkester (2011 – 15), and Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra (2002 – 10). He won the Lloyds Bank BBC Young Musicians Conductors Workshop in February 1998 and was soon appointed Assistant, then Associate Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, a post he held until 2002. He regularly leads the BBC orchestras and has appeared at the BBC Proms on a number of occasions. A champion of new music, he has conducted several high profile premières, including the world premières of Nico Muhly’s Two Boys, at English National Opera, and Brett Dean’s Viola Concerto, with the composer as soloist and the BBC Symphony Orchestra; the national premières of Poul Ruders’s Dancer in the Dark and Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Blood on the Floor and Scherzoid with NorrlandsOperan; and the Australian première of the original version of Sibelius’s Symphony No. 5, with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. To celebrate the status of Umeå as European Capital of Culture, in 2014, he conducted NorrlandsOperan in a critically acclaimed epic outdoor production of Elektra, with the Spanish theatrical group La Fura dels Baus. In 2016 he conducted Mats Larsson Gothe’s The African Prophetess with the orchestra of NorrlandsOperan and Cape Town Opera Chorus as part of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s Composer Week. In 2019, he made his début with the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra, conducting a programme devoted to music by the film composer Frédéric Devreese. Rumon Gamba has recorded exclusively for Chandos Records for over twenty years, his projects including a series devoted to orchestral works by d’Indy with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, the first of which was nominated for a Grammy Award. His Chandos discography also includes recordings of works by the Swedish composer Dag Wirén, British overtures and tone poems with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and works by Malcolm Williamson, Sir Malcolm Arnold, Miklós Rózsa, and Ruth Gipps. The Royal Academy of Music recognised his contribution to music by making him an Associate in 2002 and a Fellow in 2017.
