Jaime Martín, the Orchestra’s incoming music director, carries chamber music pedigree, having held principal flute positions in a number of orchestras, including the Academy of St Martin in the Fields under Sir Neville Marriner. Since turning to conducting only five years ago, Jaime has also experienced an abrupt ascent into worldwide attention as a conductor.

Born in Santander, Spain, and a current resident of London, Jaime was selected as music director following an extensive international search. Jaime begins his tenure with the Orchestra in the 2019-2020 season and succeeds Jeffrey Kahane, who stepped down as music director in June 2017. Jaime next appears with the Orchestra in April 2019, when he conducts the Mozart Requiem.

“Deeply familiar with the transformative music making that happens at a finely-tuned chamber orchestra, Jaime has a gift for unlocking radiance and emotion,” says Executive Director Scott Harrison. “His style and experience afford him an acute sense of balance, color and pacing that leads to captivating performances.”
