Antoni Ros Marbà

Born in L´Hospitalet de Llobregat, he studied orchestral conducting at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Barcelona with Eduardo Toldrá. He later furthered his studies with Sergiu Celebidache at the Accademia Chiggiana in Siena, and with Jean Martinon in Düsseldorf, where he was awarded the First Prize at the End of Year Awards.

In 1996, when the RTVE’s Symphony Orchestra was founded, he was appointed the position of Chief Conductor. In 1967 he was named Chief Conductor at the Orquesta Ciutat de Barcelona, and in 1978 Musical Director at the Orquesta Nacional de España. He soon was appointed Chief Musical Director at the Nederlands Kamer Orkest, of which he later became Chief Conductor. He has been Chief Conductor at the Real Filharmonia de Galicia and Director at the Escuela de Altos Estudios Musicales in Galicia.

He was invited by Herbert Von Karajan in 1978 to debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker, orchestra that he was to conduct again later. In the symphonic field he has achieved numerous successes working with some of the most important orchestras from France, England, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia and the main musical centres in America and Japan.  He visited China in its first openings to western music, accompanied by the Nederlands Kamer Orkest.

In the operatic field he has conducted with great success most of the emblematic titles, giving certain preference to authors such as Mozart, Strauss and Britten. Likewise, he has premiered the operas Divinas Palabras by Antón García Abril and The Duenna by Roberto Gerhard, recording the latter for the first time. He has also recorded for Audivis the zarzuelas Doña Francisquita, Bohemios, La Verbena de la Paloma, Luisa Fernanda, and also the opera Goyescas, being all of them positively judged by the national and international critique. 

Antoni Ros Marbá was granted the National Prize of Music by the Spanish Ministry of Music (1989), the Creu de Sant Jordi (1988), the Arthur Honegger International Record Prize for The Seven Last Words of Christ by Haydn (1966), the Barclays Theatre Award to the best operatic production of 1997 in United Kingdom for his intervention in Idiomeneo’s performance by the Scottish Opera of Glasgow and Edinburgh and the Golden Medal of the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona (2012).

In 2009 two prestigious labels, Warner Classics and Claves, edited two monographic disks from Ros Marbá conducting the Real Filharmonia de Galicia, performing works by Federico Mompou and Manuel de Falla.

He is currently Professor and Chief Conductor of the Freixenet Chamber Orchestra at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in Madrid.
