André Cebrián

Principal Flute

Spanish Flautist André Cebrián studied in his hometown Santiago de Compostela with Luis Soto, Laurent Blaiteau and Pablo Sagredo. He then went on to study with János Bálint in HfM Detmold (Germany) and with Jacques Zoon in HEM Gèneve (Switzerland).

André’s first orchestral experiences at the National Youth Orchestra of Spain, the Britten-Pears Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester led him to perform with such orchestras as the Orquestra de Cadaqués, Staatkskapelle Dresden or Orchestra Mozart. He performs regularly as a Guest Principal Flute with the Sinfónica de Castilla-León, Filarmónica de Gran Canaria, Sinfónica de Barcelona, Gran Teatro del Liceu, Malaysian Philharmonic and Spira Mirabilis.

When he is not playing in the Orchestra you can find him performing with his wind quintet Azahar Ensemble, Natalia Ensemble - symphonic ensemble where he is also the artistic director and arranger - or in one of his duo projects with harpist Bleuenn Le Friec, or guitarist Pedro Mateo González. In 2019 he founded the Festival de Música de Cámara de Anguiano in La Rioja (Spain).

He loves sharing his passion for music with his students at the Conservatorio Superior de Aragón, Barenboim-Said Foundation and the youth orchestras he coaches each season.

André joined the SCO as Principal Flute in early 2020.
