"Music is all about emotions", says Luis Toro Araya. The Chilean conductor continues to attract international attention for his brilliant career. The 23/24 season marks his renewal as Assistant Conductor of the Orquesta Nacional de España and multiple debuts with orchestras such as the Opera Nacional de Chile, the Orquesta Sinfónica RTVE and the Dresdner Philharmonie. Toro Araya transmits to the audience performances fall of emotion, engaging with musicians in a personal, energising way. By maintaining a focus on high standards in group performance, he brings a wide palette of subtle yet powerful colours to the concert platform.
