Andrés Salado

Andrés Salado is one of the most outstanding Spanish conductors of his generation. Born in Madrid in 1983, he began his musical training playing piano, violin and baroque flute. He finally opted for percussion and graduated at the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música of Madrid.

He later became attracted by the orchestral sound he listed to in its numerous interventions either as an associated or as a full member of orchestras such as the Joven Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid, Joven Orquesta Nacional de España or the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid, amongst others, and he finally began his studies in orchestral conduction. He learned from maestros such as Miguel Romea, Peter Rundell, Jorma Panula, Sandro Gorli, Peter Gülke, Peter Eötvös and Antoni Ros Marbà.

He has permorfed in prestigious theaters and concert halls: Auditorio Nacional de Música (Madrid), L’Auditori (Barcelona), Palacio de Bellas Artes (Mexico D.F.), Teatre Principal (Palma de Mallorca), Teatro Dal Verme (Milan) o el KKL Luzern (Switzerland), among many others.

His recents and future engagements include conducting the symphony orchestras of Galicia, Castile and León, Balearic Islands, Region of Murcia and Extremadura, amongst others. He has been re-invited to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional (Mexico) and he will debut with the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi at the Festival MITO (Italy).
