Alessandro D'Agostini
CONDUCTOR

Alessandro d’Agostini, one of the most outstanding Italian conductors of his generation, was born in 1974 and started his musical studies at five. After graduating in piano, conducting and composition as well in computer music, he studied with Giorgio Nottoli (composition for computer music) at Accademia Chigiana, Siena, and with Kostantin Bogino, Tchaikovsky Trio (piano and chamber music). He specialised subsequently in conducting under Piero Bellugi and Massimo de Bernart.
In 2002 he made his operatic debut in Rossini’s Guglielmo Tell (production “As.Li.Co.”, Milan) at Teatro Comunale - Bologna and at the Opera Houses of the Circuito Lombardo. In the following years, he conducts as well other “As.Li.Co.” productions: Gluck’s Orfeo e Euridice, Donizetti’s Elisir d’Amore and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.
In 2003 he led the Symphonic Orchestra of the “Toscanini” Foundation, Parma (SassuoloMusicaFestival), in the first modern performance of the “commedia per musica” Lo Matremmonio annascuso by the XVIII century neapolitan composer Leonardo Leo, on his own critical review and first modern edition. As a matter of fact, he often combines his conducting activity with musical research, especially in the field of eighteen century opera: we might mention here his critical editions and first modern performances of Luigi Cherubini’s Ifigenia in Aulide, Leonardo Leo’s L’Olimpiade and other Baroque sacred music.
In 2004 he led the Orchestra Filarmonia Veneta “G.F.Malipiero” in Verdi’s Rigoletto at Teatro Fraschini, Pavia, and made his debut with Il Trovatore at Macerata Opera-Sferisterio and at Teatro Lirico, Cagliari.
In 2006, he conducted Verdi’s Falstaff at Teatro “Verdi”, Busseto, with a big personal success. He conducted as well Cilea’s L’Arlesiana at the SassuoloMusicaFestival, at Teatro delle Celebrazioni, Bologna, and at Teatro Sociale, Mantova. He subsequently conducted Verdi’s Aida at the National Theatre of Tirana, Albania; in the same Theatre, he conducted as well Verdi’s Otello, with huge personal success.
In the next years he debuted at Teatro Comunale, Bologna (Leonardo Leo’s L’Olimpiade); at Teatro dell’Opera in Rome, on the occasion of the closing event of Summer Season at Terme di Caracalla, conducting Adam’s Giselle, with the choreography by Carla Fracci; he conducted a new performance of Rigoletto (with Jessica Pratt as Gilda) at Como-Città della Musica Festival and of Donizetti’s La Figlia del Reggimento in the Theatres of the Circuito Lombardo (with Yolanda Auyanet and Gianluca Terranova). All these performances were greeted by enthusiastic success from both the public and critics.
In 2010 Mr. d’Agostini conducted L’Elisir d’amore at Teatro Lirico, Cagliari; in this Opera House he came back again for conducting Puccini’s Tosca (2015) and several symphonic performances (the last one, in the Symphonic Season 2016, with Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin and Brahms’ Nänie and Schicksalslied). In the same year he made his successful debut at Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Florence, conducting Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia.
In the field of symphonic music, he led such orchestras as Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino-Florence, Symphonic Orchestra of the “Toscanini” Foundation-Parma, “Toscanini” Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of Teatro Lirico-Cagliari, “I Pomeriggi Musicali” Orchestra, Orchestra Filarmonia Veneta “G.F.Malipiero”, Italian Philharmonic Orchestra, Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra, Russian Philharmonic Orchestra, the Saint Petersburg Academic Philharmonic Orchestra and the State Symphony Orchestra “Novaya Rossiya”. We might mention the complete cycle of Beethoven’s Symphonies (Firenze, Palazzo Pitti, 2000-2001), the performances of Haydn’s Oratorios Die Schöpfung (Firenze, Palazzo Pitti, 1999) and Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze (Busseto, 2005), as well as the rarely performed last work by Alfredo Casella, Missa Solemnis “pro pace” (Sassuolo and Vigoleno, 2005).
From 2011 to 2013 he was appointed as Principal Guest Conductor at the Macedonian Opera and Ballet: in this Opera House he conducted Tosca, Turandot, Attila, Aida (with Vladimir Galouzine as Radames), Lucia di Lammermoor, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, La Traviata (with Irina Lungu in the title role). In 2012 he debuted at Auditorium de Tenerife in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte.
In the last years he has been regularly invited at Maggio Musicale Fiorentino for several opera and ballet productions: Adam’s Giselle, Auber’s Fra’ Diavolo, Beethoven’s Fidelio, Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’amore (2016, with Laura Giordano and Juan Francisco Gatell), Rossini’s La Cenerentola; and for symphonic performances (e.g., the first edition of the “Summer Concert”, in 2016).
In 2016 he conducted the “première” of the opera Notte per me luminosa by Marco Betta, at Teatro “Pavarotti”, Modena, and Teatro Chiabrera, Savona.
He is often invited as guest conductor in Russia, conducting concerts with the State Symphony Orchestra “Novaya Rossiya” and the Saint Petersburg Academic Philharmonic Orchestra. We remember, among other things, the performance of Orff’s Carmina Burana and Mussorgsky’s Picture at an Exhibition at Grand Hall of Moscow Conservatory and many symphonic concerts given at the International House of Music, Moscow, or in Moscow Cathedral.
Last major events of Mr. d’Agostini’s career include his debut at Teatro Massimo, Palermo, in Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’amore (2018, with Laura Giordano and Arturo Chacòn); the performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in the new Opera Houses of Jinan and Zibo, China; Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia at Teatro Regio, Parma; Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana at Priamar Fortress, Savona, with the Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro Carlo Felice, Genoa; Bellini’s La Sonnambula at Teatro delle Muse, Ancona.
