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. His work in this field was showcased in the documentary Bach to the Roots in 2015 (ORF / 3sat).
In addition to his position of Artistic Director of Third Coast Baroque, this versatile artist is co-founder and director of the Bach Consort Wien. After numerous concerts at the Vienna Musikverein, he concentrated on opera with Vivaldi's Orlando Furioso in Bonn, Martin y Soler's L'arbore di Diana in Valencia, Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea at the Semperoper Dresden, and the first Viennese production of Mozart's Clemenza Di Tito on period instruments.
Dubrovsky has also presented a number of important works for the stage: in Schwetzingen he directed Alessandro Scarlatti's Marco Attilio Regolo, for the Osterklang (Vienna) and Psalm festivals (Graz) Cristo nell'orto by J.J. Fux, and at the Theater an der Wien Porpora’s Polifemo.
A significant focus of his work is the operas of G.F. Handel, having conducted productions of Giulio Cesare, Rinaldo, Radmisto, and Agrippina (Kiel), Tamerlano (Bonn), Orlando (Vienna), and Semiramide (Halle). Dubrovsky has also been engaged to direct Haydn's Seasons at the Esterházy Palace, Bach's Christmas Oratorio with the Choir and Orchestra of the Spanish Radio in Madrid (RTVE), concerts with the Hilliard Ensemble and the Zurich Chamber Orchestra in the Tonhalle Zürich and the Rheingau Festival (ARTE / SWR), and the Vienna Osterkonzert (Easter Concert) in the Stephansdom with Vivica Genaux (ORF / 3sat).
He has conducted Lully’s Atys, Gluck’s Aleceste and Orfeo ed Euridice, Gassman’s Betulia Liberata, Solomon’s Journey (as pastiche of Mozart contructed by Michael Schade), Vivaldi’s Music Sacra and a production entitled Contrasts (Schubert Wagner, Webern, and Strasnoy), Rossini’s Tancredi, Handel’s Messiah (ORF / 3sat), Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and Mozart’s Mitridate in Schwetzingen.
Current projects include Mozart's Cosí fan tutte in Darmstadt and Idomeneo in Mannheim, Händel's Oreste in Vienna, and his debut at the Mozart Week Festival in Salzburg in 2017.
He 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.
