Ensemble LPR Names Music Director

12.03.12
Musical America

Le Poisson Rouge, largely considered Manhattan’s “coolest” music venue, presenting everything from classical music to rap on its tiny stage, has named Queens-born Tito Muñoz as music director of Ensemble LPR, the in-house, flexible-format band that apparently is soon to move into a wider array of venues.

Helping it do so will be pianist/conductor Orlando Alonso and LPR Music Director Ronen Givony, taking on the titles of co-artistic directors of the group, advising it on programming as well as handling its bookings.

Muñoz recently completed a stint as assistant conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra and serves as music director of the Opéra National de Lorraine. He’s been a guest on podiums in a number of U.S. cities, including Atlanta, Houston, and Detroit, as well as leading the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra and the Opéra de Rennes.

David Handler, a violinist and founding member of both Le Poisson Rouge and Ensemble LPR, called Muñoz “a natural choice” for the group. “He’s of that pedigree where he is capable of handling an elastic ensemble that ranges from chamber to symphonic size [and] that is committed to standard rep and the best living composers.”

Muñoz, like many of his generation, crosses genre boundaries with ease. He defined LPR as “an ensemble capable of performing anything, breaking barriers and genres. I am excited to bring my passion for versatility and artistic excellence to the group.”
