Robin Ticciati

Robin Ticciati is Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Music Director of Glyndebourne Festival Opera.

As guest conductor, he works with world-class orchestras on both sides of the Atlantic, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Tonhalle Zürich, Wiener Symphoniker, Staatskapelle Dresden, DSO Berlin, Filarmonica della Scala, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Gewandhaus Orchester Leipzig, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestra. After four years as Principal Guest Conductor of the Bamberger Symphoniker, he continues to work with them in concerts and recordings.

Ticciati balances orchestral engagements with extensive work in some of the world's most prestigious opera houses and festivals, including the Salzburg Festival, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Metropolitan Opera New York, Royal Opera House, La Scala Milan and Opernhaus Zürich.

Following his conducting debut in Brussels, at the age of just 19, Ticciati's career developed rapidly. He became the youngest conductor to appear not only at La Scala Milan but also (with Mozart's Il sogno di Scipione) at the Salzburg Festival; that performance was later released on DVD by Deutsche Grammophon. He was then appointed Chief Conductor of the Gävle Symphony Orchestra and Music Director of Glyndebourne on Tour.

Ticciati's discography includes two critically acclaimed Berlioz recordings with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra for Linn: Symphonie Fantastique and Les nuits d'été & La mort de Cléopâtre. Together, Ticciati and the SCO also recorded Wagner's Siegfried Idyll as part of a special anniversary album to celebrate the SCO's fortieth anniversary. In 2013 Linn released L'enfance du Christ with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra & Choir. Ticciati's discography also includes two discs of Brahms with the Bamberger Symphoniker for Tudor Records, one of which attracted Germany's coveted ECHO Klassik Award.

Born in London, Ticciati is a violinist, pianist and percussionist by training. He was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain when he turned to conducting at 15, under the guidance of Sir Colin Davis and Sir Simon Rattle. He has recently been appointed the Sir Colin Davis Fellow of Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music.
