Martyn Brabbins is known for his affinity with music of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, to which he brings a Romantic sensibility, an unerring sense of pace and an extraordinary ear for detail. He is closely associated with British music, and is also one of Europe’s leading interpreters of contemporary music. Since his early days conducting Mozart at the Kirov, he has conducted for the Deutsche Oper Berlin, English National Opera, Opera North, and in Frankfurt, Montpellier and Athens, in repertoire including Ravel, Poulenc, Smetana, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Korngold, Schreker, Henze, Eötvös, Tippett, Birtwistle, Gavin Bryars and David Sawer. Conductor of choice for the London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern and the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, from 1999 to 2004 he was the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Music of Today Series Conductor. He has recorded more than fifty albums for Hyperion.
