Rubén Dubrovsky was born into Polish-Italian family of artists in Buenos Aires. Two experiences, which he skillfully and inspiringly links to this day, mark his path as a musician: his classical training as a cellist and conductor on the one hand, and on the other his passionate academic research into the common roots of traditional South American music and European Baroque music.
In addition to his position of artistic director and co-founder of Third Coast Baroque, this versatile artist is co-founder and director of the Bach Consort Wien, which has been heard since 1999 at the Wiener Musikverein, Theater an der Wien, Händelfestspiele Halle, Mozartwoche Salzburg, and numerous international stages.
The operas by Handel and Mozart are a major focus of his work, previous productions include Giulio Cesare, Rinaldo, Radamisto, Agrippina, Tamerlano, Orlando, Semiramide and Oreste, Le nozze di Figaro, Cosí fan tutte, Mitridate, Idomeneo and La clemenza di Tito. He is also an opera conductor at the theaters such as Valencia, Dresden, Bonn, Kiel, Mannheim, Darmstadt, Schwetzingen, Moscow Bolshoi, and Theater an der Wien.
Dubrovsky's dedication to celebrating the connection of Latin American folk music and European Baroque music was beautifully demonstrated in the TV documentary Bach to the Roots (ORF / 3sat) in 2015. The CD Vidala (Gramola) with the Bach Consort Wien was nominated for the German Record Critics' Award. His most recent recordings include Handel's Messiah (Naxos) on CD, DVD and Blu-ray, as well as Pace e Guerra (Sony) with countertenor Terry Wey.
His symphonic repertoire ranges from Haydn to modernity. In recent years, he has conducted works by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Stravinsky, Shostakovich and Pärt at Tonhalle Zürich, Musikkollegium Winterthur, Mozarteum Salzburg, Wiener Musikverein, Wiener Konzerthaus, Palau Valencia, and Teatro Monumental Madrid. In the 2017-18 season , he conducts Bach's B Minor Mass and Brandenburg Concertos, Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro (Darmstadt and Cologne), Handel and Arvo Pärt (Moscow), Brahms, Schumann and Strasnoy (Darmstadt), and Handel's Oreste (Händel-Festspiele Halle).
Dubrovsky began his education at the Conservatorio Nacional in Buenos Aires and continued on to the Conservatory Detmold (Germany). He complemented his studies with courses of violoncello with Bernhard Greenhouse, chamber music with Eberhard Feltz, and conducting with Mario de Rose.
Maestro Dubrovsky's passion for education has also led him to serve as a master teacher at the Austria Baroque Academy, the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, the Scuola Civica Milano, the University Belgrade, and the Conservatory Palma.
