Lionel Bringuier

French conductor Lionel Bringuier’s artistic maturity, interpretive depth, and distinct programming have quickly established him as one of the most engaging conductors of his generation. He appears frequently with top orchestras to great acclaim, all of which led to his being named Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich in 2012 at age 26. Entering the fifth season since his momentous debut with the Tonhalle, Bringuier’s bold vision and boundless energy – both on and off the podium – are breathing new life and vitality into a historic ensemble.
