After he joined WNO in August 2016, Cardiff audiences first got to know Tomáš in October when his conducting of the WNO Orchestra, Chorus and Community Chorus in Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony received a five-star review in The Guardian, describing it as a “...fiery and fabulous tribute to Mahler”. This was followed by a second appearance in the International Concert Series in March 2017 where he again impressed audiences and critics alike with a programme of Mozart, Dvořák and Suk.
Tomáš returns to WNO to conduct Khovanshchina and From the House of the Dead in the Autumn Season and can be seen on the concert stage for the International Concert Series 2017/2018 at St David’s Hall in November, January and April.
Tomáš will also work on a number of other projects, which this summer included his appearances at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World.
Born in Brno in the Czech Republic, he is recognised as one of their most exciting and important conductors.
