Fabián Panisello's lively, vivid and finely differentiated tonal language is at the cutting edge of contemporary music. He has written a series of successful monodramas and chamber operas including L'Officina della resurrezione (2014), Le Malentendu (2016), Les Rois mages (2019), The Raven (2022) and Die Judith von Shimoda (2023).

His orchestral and ensemble works are performed by renowned artists: the Arditti Quartet premiered his Three Movements in 2006; Pierre Boulez conducted the SWR Symphony Orchestra with Aksaks in 2008 and, under Péter Eötvös, the Orquesta Nacional de España launched Mandala in 2009.

Fabián is also founder and Artistic Director of PluralEnsemble which has regularly performed at festivals such as Wien Modern, Présences, Ars Musica, Ultraschall, Aspekte and Klangspuren Schwaz. As a conductor, he has led the Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain, Nouvel Ensemble Moderne and the Israel Contemporary Players, among others. In 2022 he conducted Luis de Pablo's last opera El Abrecartas at the Teatro Real Madrid.

The long-time director of the Reina Sofía Conservatory in Madrid, Fabian began his training in his hometown of Buenos Aires and graduated with honours from the Mozarteum Salzburg in 1993 as a student of Boguslaw Schaeffer. He received further impetus from Elliott Carter, Franco Donatoni and Brian Ferneyhough. His work has also been promoted by Pierre Boulez, Luciano Berio and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
