Mario Brunello

One of the most significant names in the Italian and international music landscape. In Brunello’s artistic life, focus is given to projects involving different art forms, from literature to philosophy, from science to painting. Mario Brunello has performed in the main concert halls in the world, directed by names of great prestige, such as Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Zubin Mehta and Myung-Whun Chung.

Founder and Director of the Orchestra D’Archi Italiana (the Italian string orchestra), he has a very rich repertoire ranging from baroque music and Bach to contemporary music and jazz influences. In 1986, he was the first Italian artist to win the Čajkovskij contest in Moscow.
