About Angel Gil-Ordonez

Conductor Angel Gil-Ordóñez has gained recognition for his leadership of the PostClassical Ensemble. He has championed Spanish music, both traditional and contemporary. He studied composition with Pierre Boulez and Iannis Xenakis in Paris, but his career choice was set when he heard Sergiu Celibidache conduct the London Symphony Orchestra. He moved to Munich to study with Celibidache. Gil-Ordóñez conducted major Spanish orchestras and was appointed associate conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Spain in 1991. In 1994, Gil-Ordóñez moved to the U.S., founding two new organizations in 1997 that allowed him to explore his interests in contemporary music. With Joseph Horowitz, he later co-founded the PostClassical Ensemble, which has been acclaimed for its innovative programming. With the PostClassical Ensemble, he released the album Two Classic Political Film Scores in 2022.
