is a conductor of great flexibility with a broad-minded approach to programme-building and music-making, who is sought after widely across the globe.
Brönnimann has conducted significant performances of major works by composers such as Ligeti, Romitelli, Boulez, Vivier, Schnebel and Zimmerman at festivals such as Lucerne, Wien Modern, Darmstadt, Mostly Mozart at Lincoln Center and the BBC Proms.
Brönnimann is Principal Conductor of the Basel Sinfonietta with whom he continues to conduct programmes combining contemporary and unknown works with standard repertoire in typically unexpected ways, on a constant quest to challenge classical conventions and to explore new avenues for orchestral performance. In 2020 he concluded his hugely successful six-year tenure as Principal Conductor of the Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música, where he continues to return each season. Between 2011–2015 he was Artistic Director of Norway’s leading contemporary music ensemble BIT20, and from 2008–2012 Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra of Colombia in Bogotá.
Born in Switzerland, Brönnimann trained at the City of Basel Music Academy and at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester where he was subsequently appointed Visiting Tutor in Conducting, and he now lives in Madrid.
“Brönnimann’s reading and the ORF SO’s performance, were utterly compelling: fresh, neither hidebound to tradition nor novel for the sake of it.”
