Sylvain Cambreling

Born into a highly musical family in Amiens in 1948, Sylvain Cambreling quickly swapped his trombone for the baton after winning second place in the international conducting competition in Besançon in 1974 with Berlioz’ »Symphonie fantastique«. For 50 years now, he has dedicated himself to both symphonic music and opera – always with a particular penchant for the contemporary.
