Employability of young musicians in Spain

André Cebrián got a very early start in the world of music through the flute. He studied at the conservatories of Santiago de Compostela, Salamanca, Paris, Detmold and Geneva, gaining orchestral experience first in the Youth Orchestra of the Galicia Symphony Orchestra, the National Youth Orchestra of Spain (Spanish acronym: JONDE) and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, and later in the Symphony Orchestras of Castile and León, Barcelona, ​​Galicia, the Valencia region, Tenerife, the Gran Canaria Philharmonic, the Galicia Philharmonic, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Cadaqués, Mozart Orchestra, Spira Mirabilis, Orchestra Leonore, National Orchestra of Porto and Staatskapelle Dresden.

He currently teaches flute and chamber music at the Aragon Conservatory of Music and is invited to give courses and master classes in European schools and conservatories and youth orchestras such as JONDE, OJA, JOGV, OSIM and OECCh (Mexico), the Córdoba Youth Orchestra, the Ávila Symphony Orchestra and the orchestras of the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and Navarra.

In 2013, together with other young Europeans, he founded the Natalia Ensemble, a cultural platform that experiments with symphonic music from a chamber-oriented perspective. Throughout his career, he has studied the great symphonic works of composers such as Beethoven, Mahler, Bartok, Ravel and Arriaga. He has participated in festivals and tours all over Spain (Santiago, A Coruña, Bilbao, Ávila, Santander, Cádiz, Madrid, El Escorial, Zaragoza, Soria…). Both his Mahler V CD and his arrangements have been enthusiastically received by critics and are performed all over the world (Holland, Denmark, the United States…).

Recently, together with his Natalia Ensemble partner José Andrés Reyes, he founded Jopfen Music, a sheet music publishing house that puts together many of the transcriptions created for the ensemble and for his musical education workshops.
