  • Andrés Orozco-Estrada


    Andrés Orozco-Estrada is principal conductor of Filarmónica Joven de Colombia and Orquesta Sinfónica Freixenet de la Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía. He was principal conductor of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, music director of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, and chief conductor of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. 

    Orozco-Estrada regularly conducts European orchestras, including the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and Orchestre National de France, as well as major orchestras in the United States, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and The Philadelphia Orchestra. He has also conducted concerts and opera performances at Berlin Staatsoper and the Salzburg Festival. 

    After his farewell concerts in Houston, Orozco-Estrada concluded the 2021–22 season with Filarmonica Joven, leading them on a European tour with appearances at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Kölner Philharmonie, and Wiener Konzerthaus. In the coming season he appears as guest with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle, NDR Elbphilharmonieorchester, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, Orchestre National de France, and Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He also returns to the podium of the hr-Sinfonieorchester and Berlin Staatsoper, where he conducts Verdi’s La traviata. A tour with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe will take him to the Canary Islands and Mozartwoche Salzburg. Also planned are a concert week and a master class for conductors with the Orquesta Sinfónica Freixenet de la Escuela Reina Sofía.

    Orozco-Estrada’s recordings for the Pentatone label have received much attention: With the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, he recorded Stravinsky's Firebird and The Rite of Spring, as well as Richard Strauss’s operas Salome and Elektra. With the Houston Symphony, he released a Dvořák cycle and all of Brahms’s and Mendelssohn’s symphonies.

    Born in Medellín, Colombia, Andrés Orozco-Estrada began his musical education by playing the violin, receiving his first conducting lessons at the age of 15. In 1997 he moved to Vienna, where he was accepted into the conducting class of Uroš Lajovic, a student of the legendary Hans Swarowsky, at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, where he takes up his professorship in October.
