Lionel Bringuier


About this Artist

Lionel Bringuier has traveled extensively across the globe at the invitation of symphony and chamber orchestras and opera houses, and in the 2023/24 season he continues the position of Artiste Associé in his hometown with Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice. This unique appointment has given him the opportunity to curate special programs that he also conducts and to invite several of his closest musical partners, who in this season include Khatia Buniatishvili, Philippe Bianconi, Daniel Müller-Schott, Renaud Capuçon, and Alexandre Tharaud.

Well-known across Europe and most recently having served as Music Director of Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich (2014–18), Bringuier has held posts at Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León in Valladolid, Orchestre National de Bretagne and Ensemble Orchestral de Paris. Bringuier’s relationship with the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 2007 to 2013 started with the position of first assistant conductor to Esa-Pekka Salonen at the age of 21. This developed into the role of associate conductor and later resident conductor—the first in the orchestra’s history. The 2023/24 season features concerts with Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Dresdner Philharmonie, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestre National de Metz. Other highlights of this season include U.S. engagements with San Diego Symphony and Colburn Orchestra as well as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Paris Conservatoire Orchestra.
