GUSTAVO RIVERO WEBER
Gustavo Rivero Weber, founder of the Orquesta Juvenil Universitaria Eduardo Mata and its artistic director since 2015, has, in a short time, taken the ensemble to be one of the best orchestras in Mexico. The orchestra gained international recognition after a very successful Italian tour where they played at festivals such as the Meraner Musikwochen and the Emilia Romagna Festival, among others.
He studied piano at the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico, at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia with Jorge Bolet, at the Odessa State Conservatory in Ukraine with Ludmila Ginsburg, and with Guido Agosti at the Chigiana Academy in Siena. Weber then took conducting as his main activity and studied conducting technique with Avi Ostrowski, Jan Latham-Koenig and Alun Francis.
