In a short period of time, Emil Eliasson has established himself as one of the most exciting Swedish conductors of his generation. In the upcoming season, Eliasson will be assisting Simone Young for the production of Salome in the Royal Opera in Stockholm, at Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, The Nordic Chamber Orchestra and at the Copenhagen Opera Festival, where he will be conducting the final gala concert.
Emil is already enjoying ongoing relationships with many Swedish ensembles. They include: The Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Norrlandsoperan’s Symphony Orchestra, Nordic Chamber Orchestra, Dalasinfoniettan and Wermland Opera Orchestra, Uppsala Chamber Orchestra, Gothenburg Wind Orchestra, The Royal Swedish Navy Band and Staff Band of the Norwegian Armed Forces.
Emil Eliasson has assisted Daniel Harding, chief conductor at the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre de Paris, and has been engaged as assistant conductor at the Royal Opera in Sweden in productions including Die Walküre, Salome and Der Rosenkavalier with chief conductor Lawrence Renes. He has also worked at Norrlandsoperan under chief conductor Rumon Gamba in productions of Carmen and Elektra as well as a great number of symphonic programs.

In the spring of 2015 Emil was chosen by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music to take part in a master class with maestro Herbert Blomstedt and the Swedish radio symphony orchestra in Berwaldhallen, Stockholm. Emil has also been the recipient of the national scholarship of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music three years in a row. In the fall of 2015 Emil received the Crusell scholarship, awarded to young promising Swedish conductors.
Emil started his career as a bassoon player at a young age and soon came to develop his interest in conducting. He now holds a bachelor and masters degree in orchestral conducting from The Royal Collage of Music in Stockholm from which he graduated in the spring of 2014.
