Claudio Vandelli

Claudio VandelliCarlos Villarroel

Italian conductor Claudio Vandelli looks back on a long and standing international career. He is highly acclaimed, both as director of the symphonic repertoire and accompanist of internationally renowned soloists, such as Anna Netrebko, Yuri Bashmet, Erwin Schrott, Sergej Krylov, Denis Matsuev or Vadim Repin, who appreciate his magnificent talent in supporting their interpretations in the most thoughtful and sensitive way. As permanent guest conductor of the “Novaya Russiya” State Symphony Orchestra, Vandelli recently celebrated his 10th year of residence. He led them in multiple performances of masterpieces by Mahler, Strauss, Beethoven, Brahms and Verdi at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory Grand Hall.
By January 2020, Claudio Vandelli will hold the position of the first ever Chief Conductor of the „Würth Philharmoniker“, founded in 2017. Throughout the next seasons, he will build up and strengthen the positioning of this high-class symphony orchestra in the vast musical landscape of Germany.
The 18/19 season brings him back to Moscow, where he will conduct a concert with Ildar Abdrazakov in the new Zaryadye Hall, after that he leads symphonic concerts in Armenia and the Czech Republic. Furthermore, he will hold numerous auditions in order to select the musicians for the „Pan-Caucasian Youth Orchestra“, which will be resident at the new Tsinandali Festival (Georgia) in September 2019.
Concert engagements bring Vandelli to many important stages in Europe and Russia, amongst others the Berliner Philharmonie, the Royal Albert Hall, the Teatro Colon Buenos Aires, the Konzerthaus and Musikverein in Vienna, the Smetana Hall in Prague, the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow and the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, as well as to the Festspiele Baden-Baden and Aix-en-Provence. He worked with orchestras like the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London, Gürzenich Orchestra Köln, Hamburger Symphoniker, Orchester der Volksoper Wien, Royal Danish Orchestra, Moscow Soloists and many more.
From a very young age, Claudio Vandelli has been devoted to recognizing young, talented musicians and moulding them into professional orchestral musicians. Martin Engstroem, founder of the Verbier Festival (Switzerland), entrusted Claudio Vandelli with the creation of the three international orchestras of the Festival. In addition to that, Maestro Vandelli has been Director of the Music Department and Assistant Music Director to James Levine for ten years. In Verbier, Claudio Vandelli successfully worked with a large number of guest conductors, such as Charles Dutoit, Valery Gergiev, Kurt Masur, Mstislav Rostropovich, Wolfgang Sawallisch and Yuri Temirkanov. He conducted the first international tour of the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra with soloist Khatia Buniatishvili.
In the last seasons Maestro Vandelli achieved great success with film music concerts, such as “The Best of John Williams” tour in Germany and conducted the concert “Great Sounds of Italian Cinema” at the Vienna Konzerthaus and in Hungary. The French TV channel “Mezzo” broadcasted the Gala Concert of the Sochi Winter Festival 2017 conducted by Vandelli, which was recorded live with soloists Yuri Bashmet, Vadim Repin, Denis Matsuev and Avi Avital. Aired by German TV channel ZDF and in cinemas worldwide, the open air “Sommernachtskonzert 2015” at Königsplatz in Munich, with soloists Anna Netrebko, Jonas Kaufmann, Thomas Hampson, Ildar Abdrazakov and Elena Zhidkova, took place under Maestro Vandelli’s baton.
