French musician and orchestral conductor. He studied general musical theory, harmony theory, counterpoint, trombone, tuba, piano, double base and percussion at the Amiens Conservatory before he went to the Paris Conservatory, where he gained the first prize for the tenor trombone. Cambreling began his career in 1971 in Lyon, but at the same time he studied orchestral conducting at the École Normale de Musique in Paris under Pierre Dervaux, and he took his diploma a year later.

In 1974 he won the international competition of Besançon. He went to Lyon as the assistant to Serge Baudo and was deputy director of the orchestra from 1975-81. His interpretations of "Cinderella" by Rossini and "Salome" by R. Strauss found wide acclaim. In 1977 he conducted for the first time at the Paris Opera. From then on his career acquired an international dimension.

In 1979 he became the principal guest conductor of the Ensemble Inter Contemporain, and was responsible for numerous first performances. In 1981 he conducted in Glyndebourne. That same year he became the deputy musical director and first conductor of the Theatre de la Monnaie in Brussels, which appointed him as its musical director in 1987. In 1984 he made his debut at the Scala with Mozart’s "Lucio Silla."

Since 1990, he has been a regular guest conductor in Salzburg. In 1993 he became the artistic manager and chief musical director of the Frankfurt Opera, and at the same time the artistic director of the concerts of the Frankfurt Museum Society.
