Vittorio Ghielmi

The Italian viola da gamba player, conductor, and composer Vittorio Ghielmi has attracted attention for his tremendous virtuosity, and for his new approach to the sound of baroque repertoire. He has performed as a duo with lutentist Luca Pianca since 1999. In 2007, together with Argentinian singer Graciela Gibelli, he founded IL SUONAR PARLANTE ORCHESTRA, devoted to a new investigation of the early music repertoire as well as the creation of new

 projects and collaborations with, among others, great jazz artists such as Kenny Wheeler, Uri Caine, Paolo Fresu, and Markus Stockhausen. IL SUONAR PARLANTE ORCHESTRA is regularly invited 

to perform at leading halls and festivals throughout Europe, and has produced numerous award-winning recordings.

Vittorio Ghielmi is Head of the Institute for Early Music at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, and is a Visiting Professor at the Royal College in London. As director or soloist he has appeared with leading baroque and modern orchestras, including L.A. Philharmonic in Bowl Hall, Hollywood, Berlin Philharmonic, and Vienna Philharmonic. He has worked as Assistant to Riccardo Muti at the Salzburger Festspiele, and in 2018 conducted Rameau’s Pygmalion at the Drottningholms Slottsteater in Stockholm. His experiences with traditional musicians are captured in the film The Heart of Sound: A Musical Journey with Vittorio Ghielmi.
