Pablo Rus Broseta became known to a wider international audience following the highly successful opening concert of the Musica Festival 2014 in Strasbourg, where the young Spanish conductor led a joint performance of the SWR Symphony Orchestra and the Ensemble Modern. He has since made successful debuts with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the SWR Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart, the Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Orquesta Sinfónica de Radio Televisión Española. In the course of 2016, he made his debuts with the Ensemble intercontemporain and the Orquesta Sinfónica do Porto, and has since been invited to make return appearances with the Ensemble Modern as well as both the WDR and SWR.

In autumn 2015 he took up the position of Assistant Conductor at the Seattle Symphony and was subsequently promoted to Associate Conductor from the 2016/17 season. In this new role, he will lead the Seattle Symphony Orchestra in more performances than the previous season, including a festival of Shostakovich concertos as well as a concert with Yo-Yo Ma. He is rapidly building a wide-ranging repertoire from Handel to John Adams, with a focus on the great symphonic repertoire.

During his career to date, Pablo Rus Broseta has already gained experience with the Orchestre Les Siècles, which performs on period instruments, and with orchestras such as the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, Bochumer Symphoniker, Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège and the Orquesta de Valencia. He has appeared at numerous music festivals including the Klangspuren Schwaz, Transart Festival Bolzano, Ensems Festival Valencia and the Cresc… Festival Frankfurt. He has worked closely with composers such as Wolfgang Rihm, Hans Zender, Johannes Maria Staud, Thomas Adès, Philippe Manoury, Magnus Lindberg, Martin Matalon, Francisco Coll and Luca Francesconi.

Pablo Rus Broseta studied composition and saxophone at the Conservatory of his native Valencia, carried out further studies in conducting in Lyon as well as the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Universität der Künste Berlin. He received valuable input from Bernard Haitink, Pierre Boulez, David Zinman, Kurt Masur and Steven Sloane. He served as Assistant Conductor of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège in the 2009/2010 season, the Dutch National Opera Academy in 2010 as well as the Valencia Youth Symphony Orchestra from 2010 to 2013. In 2011 he founded the Spanish chamber orchestra Grup Mixtour, which he still directs today. There, he aims to revitalise concert experiences through eclectic programming of music from different eras and with diverse aesthetics.
